Good Karma

November 20, 2017
by Lauren Wolf
This coming weekend we will be participating in the Good Karma sale where we will be donating 10% of all in-store and online sales to our charity of choice, Sloan Kettering. We’ve run this sale over the past few years (thanks to the ladies who thought this one up) in place of Black Friday and have always donated to the Sloan Kettering Institute in New York City. Sloan Kettering Cancer Institute and Research Center is one close to my heart. I’ve lost two young, female friends to their battles with cancer over the past few years and donating a small amount of funds to continue the research into fighting this disease is the least we can do. These funds will go to help fuel future... Read More

Though a Scorpio is a calm and cool water sign on the outside, they are born fierce with the rules of the universe embedded at their core.

Please join us in the Oakland shop on Saturday, October 14th for a piercing party with master piercer J. Colby Smith – link to book below!
