What a Stud(s)! Celeb-Fave Ear-Piercing Boutique Bows in Rice Village

CELEB-ADORED EAR-piercing studio and earring brand, Studs has opened its first Houston storefront in Rice Village at 2567 Amherst Street.


This outpost marks Studs’ 15th location and its third in Texas to open since the company launched in 2019. The neon-happy boutique is taking over the former Shop Rice Owls store. Neighboring businesses include Sweetgreen, Shake Shack, Bluemercury and Gap.

Combining fun and playful brand experience with expert, personalized piercings, Studs is reimagining the antiquated ear-piercing experience for a new generation. It has pierced celebrity lobes, including Dixie D’Amelio, model Kaia Gerber and Euphoria actress Maude Apatow, and their earrings are loved by Emma Watson, Selena Gomez and singer Justine Skye.

The brand's Earbar offers various affordable and trendy earrings ranging from $10 to $160 per earring and sold as singles or pairs. All are made of quality materials that won’t irritate the most sensitive ears.

To celebrate the opening, Studs has partnered with Houston-based Project Row Houses, donating $5,000 to this community platform that enriches lives through art with an emphasis on cultural identity and its impact on the urban landscape. This organization engages neighbors, artists and enterprises in collective creative action to help materialize sustainable opportunities in marginalized communities.

Our staff and units are called to serve our community every hour of every day; there are no weekends, holidays, or “days off.” Obviously, the demands of EMS are not for the faint of heart, and we have established a culture of service and accountability that is different than nearly every other organization. Our leadership team sets this culture by exhibiting their passion for this industry daily. Their tireless dedication makes a better experience for our staff when they come to work and for our patients and clients when they call on us to transport their loved ones.

Mohl and Leo Villareal's 'Houston Light Matrix' installation

FOR RACHEL MOHL, recently named the new Executive Director and Chief Curator of Public Art of the University of Houston System (Public Art UHS), the power of public art is its ability to engage large audiences. “It’s anything that’s exhibited in public spaces and meant to engage people in their everyday life,” says Rohr. “It’s combining art and life on a large scale.” Mohl also believes art can reveal untold histories, explore cultural exchanges, and engender a social awareness. “Public art is a really great stage in which to do that, because it’s so front and center in our communities,” she says.
