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.
What I enjoy about piercing:
It an art all in itself! The creation and prosses to get there. Piercing is expression and individuality, who wants to be just another person, nothing like a piercing to change your whole look in a heartbeat. I really enjoy piercing and all that comes with it!
Favourite piercing to perform:
SEPTUM!!! So central in the face and so fun to do, it a gutsy piecing yet so easily concealed, not mention its ties back throughout history, seems to be cool ageless piecing if you ask me.
Funny Anecdote/quotes/experiences in the studio:
The old “poke them and they fart” is one that I always get a giggle over, diffusing the situation by then looking for a mysteries “duck” or “frog”.
Piercing I feel proud of:
Every single one of them! I love piercing and take a lot of pride in doing so. A poke a day keeps the gremlins away!
