After being open for only three years, woman-led Luar Body Piercing has taken the gold medal as the Best Piercing Shop in Kelowna.
Shop owner Sea Dawne has had a passion for piercing for as long as she can remember. While her business has only been open for three years, Dawne has been piercing for over ten years and thus has a wealth of knowledge and experience in her field.
“Body piercing was always an outlet for me. It made me feel confident, powerful and was something I could control. Sometimes it represented an important time in my life. I started Luar in hopes of giving this feeling to other people. The freedom,” says Dawne.
Luar was the Okanagan’s first studio ever to specialize in professional body piercing that also makes its own jewelry. Because their focus is body piercing and nothing else, they offer an elevated level of expertise and care.
Since they hand-craft their Luar gold jewelry on-site with solid gold and carefully source the rest, they provide the highest quality metals to ensure your piercing will stay healthy.
Anyone who’s had a piercing knows that going to a professional makes a world of difference, and so does the quality of the tools and jewelry being used.
The dedication the staff at Luar Body Piercing have to their profession coupled with the raised standard of the jewelry they use has quickly made a considerable impact in our city.
“I feel we’ve made big progress in the community in a short time - which we are proud of and very thankful for. We are the Okanagan's largest supplier of body jewelry,” says Dawne.
The shop offers its curated collection and handcrafted Luar gold collection in-store as well as through its website - which has helped it make a name for itself country-wide.
“We are based in Kelowna, but in the few short years we have been open our brand and jewelry have reached all corners of the country - being shipped to places as far as Nunavut, Newfoundland and Labrador”.
While their attention is on body jewellery, Luar Body Piercing also offers beautiful custom-made jewellery.
“Our handcrafted jewelry line, Luar Gold, specializes in body jewelry, but also in all other jewelry. We regularly design custom engagement, wedding, and anniversary rings that are also shipped across Canada - working closely and one on one with our clients to bring their ideas and hopes to reality which brings a very personal approach”.
With such devotion to offering the highest standard of service, it’s no wonder why Luar Body Piercing was voted the best in the city by readers like you.
