The Exotic Body opened its doors in 1990 with the vision of being Sacramento’s first piercing studio. Michael Hare, the senior piercer and owner of The Exotic Body, had set new standards in the piercing industry by offering his clients only the highest quality and largest selection of body jewelry, and the extensive knowledge of unique and unusual body modifications.

After twenty eight years in the piercing industry, The Exotic Body’s reputation as a safe, clean, professional studio has spread across the United States and into Europe and Japan, where Michael has taught numerous seminars on body piercing.The standard of quality at The Exotic Body is prevalent in the large selection of high end and out of the ordinary jewelry, and in the well educated staff who pride themselves on customer service. Everyone who works at The Exotic Body is fully trained in blood borne pathogens, cross contamination prevention, CPR, and First Aid. “We have created an environment that makes our customers feel comfortable, we definitely have an attitude free shop” Says Michael, who knows the importance of helping clients walk through the fear of a piercing or tattoo, be it their first or fiftieth time.

Not only is Michael the owner and Senior piercer at The Exotic Body, he also teaches seminars on body piercing. With sixteen years of professional body piercing and body modification experience, his week long seminars are a great way to learn new techniques and gain valuable hands on experience.
