The Magic Needle Piercing Studio opened Dec. 10 in downtown McKinney at 208 E. Virginia St., McKinney. The Magic Needle will offer a variety of body piercings, including ear, navel, nose, lobe, tragus, daiths and more. All piercings at the studio are made with sterile and clean supplies, according to the owner and body art practitioner. The shop uses needles, not piercing guns, to reduce the risk of spreading harmful bacteria. The shop is hosting a grand opening Dec. 13 from 1-10 p.m., during which the shop will offer piercings at a discounted price. 469-631-0206. www.the-magicneedle.com
