Pangea's New Direction

 

continued



Potts says most of his clients on State Street were students, but since the move he's seeing an older, more up-scale crowd. "A lot of them had piercings back in the nineties, and a lot of them took them out, thinking, 'Oh, I gotta grow up, I got kids now,' and all this stuff. But there comes a time when you want to try and get [that feeling] back."

Prices range from $20 for a titanium stud to more than $1,000 for a diamond one. "We actually sell quite a bit of the high-end stuff, especially with my age group," potts says. "When you're young you get the inexpensive titanium stuff, then you put them in a drawer when it's time to get a job. When you're over thirty and more set financially, you get gold and diamonds, which is the kind of jewelry you're wearing anyway."

Pangea Piercing, 211 E. Liberty. 997-0608. Mon.Sat. noon-9 p.m., Sun. 1-p.m.-8 p.m. www.pangeapiercing.com
