Fraidy Cats' is temporarily closed for piercings and jewelry insertions at this time.
Ten years ago on Sunday, August 1st 2010 I opened Fraidy Cats' Professional Body Piercing. I am so grateful to you all for your support over the years! I miss you all and I miss piercing too. I'm looking forward to re-opening once I find a new space! I'm still working on the new body jewelry store and hope to have it up and running on the website by the end of August.
I am excited to share that this last month I won a scholarship from the Association of Professional Piercers. I get to take online education courses in piercing. Even after almost 20 years of piercing I am so grateful for the opportunity to continue to learn and grow in my craft! Thank you APP!
July Jewelry Contest!
Thank you to all who entered! I will contact the winners this week by email and post them soon!

Please help save Fraidy Cats' with a gofundme donation!
Thank you to all who have donated! I greatly appreciate your generosity during this difficult time. All donations will go into a savings account while I make a plan to relocate. I hope to raise enough funds to cover the cost of relocating and an establishment license. The state MN is not granting establishment licenses at this time due to the pandemic. I will update the website at the beginning of every month and as more information is available.
Thank you for taking the time to read the letter below.

I wrote this letter to thank you. Thank you for the last 10 years of Fraidy Cats' and for the last 20 years of piercing. Thank you for choosing my shop to come to all these years. I am so grateful for the chance to have met you and to have guided you through such an exciting experience! I cherish the opportunity I've had to share my knowledge about jewelry, aftercare, and healing. Over the years it has made me so happy to see you so happy! The opportunity to create a life for my family and myself from something I truly enjoy is an amazing gift you have given me!
Unfortunately due to the current pandemic Fraidy Cats' has been closed since March 17th. As many of you know Fraidy Cats' is a one woman show. The closure has been tough. All income suddenly stopped and has now taken any savings. Due to circumstances beyond my control I now must relocate Fraidy Cats'.
A gofundme has been set up to help with the relocation of Fraidy Cats' and loss of income. My goal for relocation is one year. During the pandemic the state of MN is not issuing establishment licenses.
It is my hope that after 20 years of piercing I can raise enough funds to relocate. For the last 10 years of running Fraidy Cats' I have shown that I put all my heart into running a fair, honest, welcoming, caring, clean, and safe environment for my clients and with your help I hope to continue to do that for years to come. Even though many businesses are re-opening on June 1st Fraidy Cats' will continue to stay closed (hopefully temporarily).
July 1st, 2020 will be Fraidy Cats' 10 year anniversary! I have designed a new website! Please bear with me as it is still a work in progress. I will be adding a body jewelry store and information on jewelry styles, jewelry insertion tips, healing, aftercare and more. During the month of July there will be a contest with prizes to come as well! I look forward to sharing this new website and connecting with you all again soon!
I can't thank you all enough for your support, loyalty, and patience!
