About Us

The Origins Of Mauve

Mauve opened in March 2012 and is the vision of Pat Pierce who wanted to bring a personal, clinical level of service and hygiene to body piercing. A studio where the focus is on high-end client service and ongoing education in order to provide the best service and products to our clients.

Mauve is a bias and judgment-free zone where everyone is welcome and will be treated with respect! Whether you are a family who wants to bring their children in for their first piercing or you are a serious body piercing and jewelry aficionado with a need for educated guidance on your idea, we will provide you with the best body piercing advice and jewelry recommendations.

Pat Pierce began his piercing career with an apprenticeship with the legendary Pierre Black of Black Sun Studio in November of 2006 and then continued piercing with Yanick Bleau of Excentrik in February of 2008, where he moved on to become the primary piercer and manager. He became a Professional Business Member of the Association of Professional Piercers in January 2011 (at that time he was the fourth member in Canada). He continues to attend yearly courses on infection control as well as educational conferences held by the Association of Professional Piercers.

Continuing education is one of our guiding principles at Mauve and all piercing staff attend educational classes and workshops related to hygiene and safety, technique, jewelry, and customer service. Our jewelry sales specialist and reception team have in-depth knowledge of all of our products and services and have regular training.
