171 turns 10!!!  

On Nov. 25th 2006, Suburban 171, inc. originally opened the doors of our 1st studio in Lockport, Il. 
10 years later and a couple small moves, we are located in Romeoville, Il. and rocking our 171 banner with WYT and PMA! We would like to put out a huge Thank You out to all our amazing clients for 10 years of support and keeping us fed. None of what we do is possible with out all of you. We have had some changes over these years, but our endless commitment to give you all our very best everyday will never change. We have big plans for our 10th year and 2017, so be sure to keep stopping by to see what we are up to and get that new art or jewelry you’ve been dreaming about. We love you guys! Thank You!

PMA upgraded our Piercing Suite!!! 

With a small window time of this month and our awesome staff working 24/7 for a week, we were finally able to update our Piercing suite Here at PMA & WYT. Thank You all for keeping us so busy that it was a challenge for us to be able to take apart the room and update it this year. But it gave us the time to plan it out and make it the best we could to take care of all of you the safest ways.  We can't wait for everyone to stop and enjoy the new room and get that new jewelry or piercing you've been thinking about. Be sure to look for all the new little touches and the fresh new mural put up by Brandon.
