Because our sole focus is body piercing and jewelry, we're able to give all our attention to even the smallest details of our craft, resulting in only the best experience for you.

We are some of Tennessee’s few members — and Chattanooga’s only members — of the Association of Professional Piercers, meaning we’re dedicated to health and safety in every capacity, including in our continued education, techniques, sterility, and jewelry.

Our jewelry showroom is home to Chattanooga's largest selection of jewelry for both fresh and healed piercings. We pride ourselves not only in the selection, but the quality.

In addition to a clean, quality piercing and a stunning piece of jewelry, we provide a calm, private, and professional environment for everyone to be comfortable for their one-of-a-kind experience



We offer a full range of piercing services, including children's ear lobe piercings, custom/curated ear projects, surface piercings, and genital piercings for adults of any gender. In addition, we assist in jewelry selection & jewelry changes. Our full list of services is available on our scheduling page.

We strongly recommend making an appointment for any service. Walk-ins are accepted, but only on a "first-come, first-served” basis if/when time is available between appointments.

Our jewelry showroom includes some of the body piercing industry's most dedicated and sought after designers, like ANATOMETAL, NeoMetal, LeRoi, BVLA, and Gorilla Glass.  All of our jewelry is nickel-free. We have a variety of solid 14 and 18 karat rose, yellow, and white gold. And wherever applicable, our jewelry meets ASTM standards for permanent implantation into the body, as well as exceeds the Association of Professional Piercers' criteria for jewelry quality.

We are the first studio in the state to perform completely tool-free piercing; we do not use clamps or piercing guns, as they add excessive pain and unnecessary risk. Additionally, Monarch is the first in Tennessee and the only studio within 100 miles that is fully disposable. All jewelry and piercing implements are brand new and sterilized immediately before your procedure in a cutting-edge autoclave, then disposed of immediately.

Studio + Staff

Our beautiful new studio on East Main Street just outside of Chattanooga’s Historic Southside District provides a central, spacious, and accessible location, just far enough from the bustle to include off-street parking. But the same dedicated staff is here for you.
