Happy New Year from all of us at Stick Tattoo Co. For us, 2015 was an amazing year with a variety of events including our one-year anniversary, Mountainfest, the West Virginia Tattoo Expo, Steel City Tattoo Expo, Triple-S Harley Davidson Anniversary Party and more. The year also included some pretty awesome community activities for the shop including our first annual Tats for Tots, Stick It to MS, 2nd Annual Sept. 11 Tribute Tattoo and Tats for Toys campaign.  We thank all of you for supporting these efforts.

These events were amazing and allowed us to meet so many people, and showcase the amazing team that is Stick Tattoo. Our team has been working their asses off to ensure we are providing the best tattoo and body piercing services throughout West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Our artists Brandon Volek, Brandon Moats, Dan Lewis and Andrew Packard continue their dedication to the most unique and distinct tattoo styles around. Harmony Mafield is quickly becoming one of the most recognized body piercers in the region ensuring her clients leave happy and educated on proper healing and after care.

As for what’s coming up next, we thought it would be fitting to kick the new year off right by sharing a little insider knowledge of upcoming trends within the industry.

2016 Trends within the body piercing industry

Much like tattooing, body piercing has seen a variety of trends throughout the years. Our location, smack in the middle of West Virginia University campus, means we are continuously piercing everything from ears, naval, nipples, and genitals on a daily basis. A recent article by Allure Magazine named some of the top trends coming in piercing for 2016. Just a few of these include:

Septum piercings
Multiple ear piercings
Smiley piercing
Daith piercing
….and more.
