As Chicago’s very first piercing only studio, we aim to consistently provide a safe, clean, and professional environment for all. Since opening our doors in 2013, Identity has become one of the most trusted body piercing studios in the industry. Our expert team of Body Piercers have a combined total of over 40 years of experience. Our extensive jewelry selection ensures you will find the right piece for your own unique style. Most of our body jewelry is Gold or Titanium but we also carry jewelry for any occasion in sterling silver, brass, and more! In October 2022, we opened our second location in the Roscoe Village neighborhood of Chicago. Our goal remains the same in providing a safe, clean, and exciting experience to our clients anytime they visit our studios.
Identity’s piercers are constantly continuing their education by attending Association of Professional Piercers conferences and researching gemstones and gemology. The studio carries jewelry from all over the world, featuring several different emerging and established jewelry artists. Each year, we travel to meet new artists to feature in studio. If you don’t find what you’re looking for in the shop, the artists will make it for you!
In 2018, we launched Identity’s in-house jewelry line, Moll Doll Designs, to give our clients even more options. Everything from this line is hand-made by Molly Bennett in Chicago. Moll Doll Designs specializes in rare gemstones and metal smithing and offers custom ordering so you can create your own designs as well. Identity’s goals are to create a clean, safe environment for body adornment and to provide the largest, most unique and customizable selection of body jewelry possible.
In order to keep up with the constant change in fashion or accessory trends, we expanded our product and service line with the inclusion of Tooth Gems. These are provided by our DDS professionally trained Tooth Gem Technician. This service includes applying a clear dental adhesive to the surface of a tooth and setting a solid gold or crystal gem on the surface.
