“I didn't expect such a beautiful Victorian building: definitely not the norm for a tattoo and piercing shop. Everything was clean and professional, with a friendly staff.”

"Cam is incredibly skilled at Microblading! She is extremely careful, detail oriented, and will be sure to cater to individual needs and wants. Cam is a kind, professional, and exceptionally skilled artist! The best! The entire place of Cold River Body Arts is super chill, clean and has a beautiful aesthetic!
