Piercings you feel especially proud of:
I am especially proud of my first ever philtrum. It was completely solo and the customer was willing to just let me have a go as long as I was confident. And it turned out amazing! It was my first ever “advance” piercing to do, and it was then that I really started to love piercing because it was something different!
My other piercings I am especially proud of (and unfortunately don’t have a photo of) is a huge genital project I got to do. In total, there were 20 piercings from front to back, with 11 being done in one sitting! The client sat like an absolute boss, and I am so proud of how straight and perfect they looked! I would love to do another project like this!!

Funny anecdotes/quotes/experiences in the studio:
Honestly, I think one of the funniest experiences in the studio was when I got my piercings! I got 6 in one sitting in my ear and I am the worst client to pierce. I felt so bad for Toni who had to do it, but she was also laughing. I was doing Lamaze breathing the whole time to try and breath through the pain. It looked sick but ouch! And I don’t even know why it hurt so bad; I’ve been through worse!
Another funniest moment was when I had a lovely older lady come in who wanted to get her nose pierced. She said “I’ve always wanted a piercing and my friend has one and she is my age and I thought it looked beautiful! My husband told me I was stupid and wouldn’t look at me, but I told him to stuff it…. Well I used other language!” She is still one of my favourite clients who comes in regularly to change it over and try other studs and rings. I’ve seen her husband too a few times and we always joke with him about getting a matching one.

Favourite piercing to perform:
Favourite piercing to perform are definitely nipples! I love when customers come in and they are so self-conscious about taking their shirts off, but once we’re all finished and they see their new piercings, they are so confident! They love them and you can’t wipe their smile off! (until they accidentally knock it)

What you enjoy the most about piercing:
That it’s so different to any other job! It’s a weird and wonderful experience and something that I never ever pictured doing.


Piercings you feel especially proud of:
My first ever bridge piercing! I’m super happy with how it turned out (despite how long the marking took). It was so straight, looked amazing and the client was so happy with it. I’ve since done a few, but that first one will always be the one I’m most proud of.
- I also got the chance to do a dermal above a navel! It was my first time doing a dermal on a stomach, and it was just the quickest and easiest dermal I have ever done. The client absolutely loved it, and it just sat perfectly.
One more I’m proud of is another dermal. The client wanted it at the base of her neck/throat, and not to toot my own horn, but it was like the piercing was a missing puzzle piece, and putting it in just completed the whole picture. Looking at the picture now, I just can’t believe how well it turned out and how perfect it just looked

Funny anecdotes/quotes/experiences in the studio:
I always tell people who are nervous, “You can swear, shout, scream and call me any name under the sun if it’s going to help you through”. I’ve been called numerous names (most of which I can’t say here) and it is a good ice breaker afterwards so that we can have a bit of a laugh and makes the whole experience much less tense.
I always get people asking me if they can close their eyes during the piercing, and my response is always “Yeah, of course. As long as mine are open, you’ll be fine”. Always get a little chuckle after that one.

Favorite piercing to perform:
I know its asking for one, but I’ll happily do an industrial, a bridge or a dermal any day.

What you enjoy the most about piercing:
Everything! I love planning out piercing projects, helping people choose what to get, literally everything! I’ve helped people through breakups, I’ve celebrated milestones with them, and it’s all because I can give them a new piercing.
