We're Looking for a New Piercer

     We are growing and grateful to our clients for that.

     Halo has an opening for a piercer at our studio. In addition to piercing clients, this detail oriented customer service position involves answering jewelry and piercing-related questions as well as helping clients pick out jewelry for new and existing piercings. You will check IDs, help clients with paperwork and ring them up for purchases. 

     Your primary focus will be customer service, making our clients feel comfortable and being as helpful as possible while you pierce them. You must be able to retain information, pay close attention to detail, multi-task and remain super friendly in an environment that can be fast-paced and a little stressful at times.

     We are looking for a team player with the right attitude, not a specific look!

Position Requirements:

       You need to have at least 4 years full time piercing experience in a studio and have good hygiene. This position will be for 4-5 days/week (35-40 hours/week). Must be available nights and weekends (the more open your schedule is, the better). Previous face-to-face customer service experience is mandatory, as you will assist at the counter. Pay will vary depending on experience.

     Basically, we want someone who is great with people, is a team player with a good attitude and understands that client service is about much more than a fake smile and a "May I help you?" Our standards are high, the right person for this job will see that as a good thing and as a challenge, not something to be scared of.

Three ways to apply:

     Submit resume with four (4) professional and two (2) personal references;
     Piercing portfolio on CD, DVD or USB, portfolio must include when the piercing    
     was done to when the photo was taken; new and healed piercings. 

     The above may dropped off in person at Halo Monday or Tuesday noon to 5pm.

     Email: halocontacts at with a link to your portfolio.
     Mailed to: Halo Piercing & Jewelry 10 W. Camelback Road, Phoenix, AZ 85013
    ( Include a paid return envelope if you wish to have your portfolio returned.)

National Scrabble Day

      For the Scrabble lover in your life we have vintage scrabble tile made into pendants using silver.

 In 1931 an unemployed architect , Alfred Mosher Butts created the game "Lexiko" which was changed to "criss-Cross Words" and later came to be known as Scrabble.

     This very popular game is played with two to four players whom score points by forming words from individual letter tiles that have points on them, on a game board marked with a 15x15 grid.

       IN the United States, the name Scrabble is trademarked by Hasbro, inc. Scrabble is sold in 121 countries with 29 different language versions. Worldwide, over  one hundred and fifty million sets have been sold.   It is
no possible to play Scrabble in Japanese's or Chinese, but they play in English with a rule book in their own language.
       1984 - Scrabble became a daytime game show on NBC
       1989 - The highest score for one game is 1049 by Philip Appleby from Lymington
       1995 - Underwater Scrabble was played at Portsmouth University using special laminated boards and tile   
                    with led weights.
      2004 - Scrabble was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame
      2014 - Scrabble added a new word to the official player's dictionary. Geocache is the first time the     
     Scrabble dictionary has ever included a word that was voted on by the fans and it's the first major    
      update to the Scrabble dictionary in nearly a decade

     National Scrabble Day is celebrated today in honor of the birth of Alfred Mosher Butts, born on April
     13,  1899.


     To celebrate today, get some friends together and play a game
     of Scrabble or Words with Friends (not actually the same, but it will due).
