Insight Studios is the first studio recognized by The Association of Professional Piercers in Chicago. By adhering to the highest industry standards, you will receive a professional piercing by a professional piercer. Only the highest quality of jewelry the industry has to offer is used.

Insight Studios offers weekly autoclave spore-testing in Chicago. The results are kept on-site to ensure that our equipment is sterilized using the highest standards in the tattoo/piercing industry.

The entire piercing room is made up of glass block and a frosted glass door for privacy and ease of cleaning. All work surfaces are made of stainless steel which makes them easy to wipe down and disinfect.

Every artist at Insight attends an annual bloodborne pathogens and principles of infection control training course, which meets the requirements of OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.1030.

Please feel free to check out the standards that are put in place by The Association of Professional Piercers at their website at : www.safepiercing.org
