Hello my name is Jamie Weber and I am a licensed body piercing technician in the state of MN. My goal in creating Fraidy Cats' is to give my clients a great service in a clean, comfortable, welcoming environment, by a knowledgeable and caring piercer. I look to provide a great experience while also helping my clients understand more about their piercings, body jewelry, & healing process. I learned to pierce professionally in 2001, and I'm certified in Bloodborne Pathogens, First Aid, and CPR.
SHOP UPDATES 2022
I am closed for business during the relocation process. I will post updates here under shop updates.
Continuing to work on the new shop! In the next two weeks we'll be getting quotes for plumbing and electrical. Waiting for the sewer assessment from the Metropolitan Council in order to turn in the building permit (which has taken a few weeks). Once I have the building permit the last thing is to apply for the establishment license from the State of MN which can take up to 30 days to process. While waiting for the state license we will be building out the shop by adding walls, electrical, plumbing, and flooring. I'm also continuing to work on the jewelry store catalogue. After that it's setting up the furniture and getting everything in place. Getting closer to the finish line! I will update the shops progress again in two weeks.
City council approved the conditional use permit to allow piercing in the building and granted my city business license! Now it's on to building permits, building, and state licensing. My original opening date goal has been extended due to my recent knee injury and surgery. My healing has progressed well and I'm grateful to be walking again. My knee is still weak but is getting stronger everyday with physical therapy.
On May 28th I injured my knee and on June 8th I had surgery to repair a lateral bucket handle meniscus tear. Due to this I am currently unable to work. I want to give a huge thank you to those who donated to help me during this challenging time. Your gesture has meant a lot and helped more than you know. When Fraidy cats re-opens your discounts will be applied to future purchases.
If you'd like to be notified when Fraidy cats re-opens fill out the form below.
Temporarily closed for piercings due to knee surgery and relocation. Please see shop updates above for more information.
Fraidy Cats will be relocating into its own larger location during the month of October 2022. The new location will offer expanded hours, minor piercings, walk-in days, and an online jewelry catalogue for clients.

PIERCINGS BY J.ME
Being a body piercer I am lucky to meet a variety of interesting people. I really care for others and I pride myself in giving my clients a great piercing and experience. The art of piercing is a passion of mine, I have been fascinated with it since the first time I saw one. Body piercing has come a long way since then and has grown immensely in popularity and acceptance. I value individuality and personal expression and believe that piercings are a great way to reflect that. I have included some of my piercing pictures below.
