ONTARIO WIDE Restriction on all ear piercings. As of June 24, Guelph and area have been restricted by Public Health from performing any new ear piercings. This means everything related to the head (nose, eyebrows, lips, septum and now ears) are off limits until we hear otherwise. Sorry for the inconvenience, it’s our hope that ear piercings that do not interfere with masks or headcoverings will be allowed again in the near future, so keep in touch and we’ll update as we hear more.


No Piercings FRIDAY JANUARY 31 AND SATURDAY FEBRUARY 1, as Mark, our piercer, will be competing in the prestigious Brampton Cup for amateur boxing. Best of luck, Mark!

Attention Guelph Weirdy-beardies! The new shipment of Topher’s Beard Company beard oils, balms and soaps have just arrived! We’re also carrying a brand new scent, Bullet, which is sure to be one of the more popular choices for your beard care. Bullet is a deep conditioning oil base, hand-blended with the scent of unfired gunpowder and spicy black pepper that will have your beard soft and smelling awesome. From the moment you open the bottle you  feel like you’re standing on the gun range.  This isn’t the sulfuric scent that most think of with gunpowder but the clean unfired scent of powder, brass and gun oil.

Like all the beard oils and balms we carry at Nighthawk Tattoo, the carrier oils will nourish and hydrate your face hairs, the oil blend not only smells great but also will help with acne, dandruff and under beard itch. In short, it will help keep your skin healthy under your beard.
