Body Decoration Studio Truth l Okinawa Hai!

If you’re in the market for a body piercing, then Truth is definitely the place to go! You can’t miss it when you’re driving on 23, it’s the light purpled colored building. They have parking on the side. There’s a big sign on the front that says “TRUTH” in large letters and “Body Decoration Studio” in smaller letters. Their hours indicate that they are open from 1:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., but I arrived before noon and they were open and took me right in.

Upon entering you remove your shoes and put on a pair of slippers. The place is immaculate and there are cases filled with body jewelry that is available for purchase. The options for body piercings are endless. I definitely learned a thing or two while I was there about things that you can pierce!

They have you fill out release paperwork, pick the location/size of the piercing you want, then you have to sit and wait and they prepare the room.

Body Decoration Studio Truth l Okinawa Hai! There are approximately six different rooms, very private with curtains that serve as doors.

When you enter your room everything is still sealed in the sterile containers. You sit in a very fancy chair that lifts, shifts, turns, and reclines to the piercers best angle, and your comfort post-piercing. I was talked through the entire process (they speak English!) and felt very comfortable with everything. This was by far the cleanest body piercing studio that I have ever been in (way better than anything I have ever seen in the U.S!)

If you are looking for a body piercing, I cannot recommend this place more. They just recently moved/relocated here to 23 (from the seawall). The space is large and the parking is very convenient!

  1. I went to Truth today for the first time & was so impressed. The salon was extremely clean and organized. The staff was the best! Not only were they knowledgeable and patient, but they were very very professional. I would recommend this place to anyone.

  2. I just went today, I was very nervous but the staff was great. They were very professional. The area I was getting pierced looks a bit different then most people due to a hereditary condition. I informed them about this before hand and they were more professional about it then most doctors are. I was shocked at how comfortable they made me feel, I can’t say enough about them!!!

  3. I went here on NYE thanks to your review. The shop is very nice and clean. The staff were all able to communicate with me with no problems. The piercer was very professional. He took his time making sure he got the measurements and markings correct before starting.

    The prices are about double what you would pay in the states. This shouldn’t deter you from going. Everything here is expensive, but it’s worth it for a quality piercing. I had some friends who ended up going there after I left for piercings as well. I would suggest calling the shop before you go to check their hours for the day. They close down on some American holidays or have earlier hours. You can also receive a quote via phone. There is an extra 5% charge if you use credit card.

  4. Just went in today to try to save a lip piercing that fell out in my sleep this morning believing there was no saving it and it would have to be re-pierced. I was happy to hear they would be able to push my old jewelry back through the piercing after sterilizing it for a small fee of ¥1500, total wait time was ~45 min for the sterilization and it only took about 5-10 min to taper back up to 14g and re-insert the jewelry.

    I couldn’t be happier with the customer service and cleanliness of the shop. I wish I was staying longer in Okinawa to go back a few more times and get more work done! The staff are very knowledgable about all things body modification (piercings) and very sweet. I purchased a shirt to wear proudly and will highly recommend them to anyone looking to get work done while in Okinawa!
    They even give a point card for repeat customers!
