Favourite piercing to perform:
My favourite piercings to perform are any interesting ear work. Triple forward helix, industrial, anti-tragus, transverse lobe etc. I love the control you have with doing ears and cartilage, and the fact you can get up close and really get those angles poppin.
Piercing I'm most proud of:
I have included a picture of 5 helix piercings I did on one clients ear, all with ball captive rings. I am especially proud of this piercing as its very aesthetically pleasing, the way the rings flow and wrap around the ear and the way they are spaced apart.
I have also included a picture of triple dermal anchors I did on our very own Chloe G’s nape. This procedure was performed when Melissa was here for training and it was a lot of fun, plus the results were great. Chloe took it like a champ, and they have healed up really well. I am especially happy with the spacing and the colour choice, it really stands out!
Funny anecdotes/quotes/experiences in the studio:
One time I was piercing a lady’s nose and her toddler daughter was sitting in the room with her. My client did not want to leave her alone because she might run off. The girl was sitting quietly in the corner when I went to mark up the nose on my client with a toothpick, the little girl exclaimed loudly “Mummy I see the needle, it’s made of wood!” I was like Oh God No I will not pierce you with this toothpick!! A wooden needle sounds like the worst idea ever lol.
What you enjoy the most about piercing:
The thing I enjoy the most about being a body piercer is helping people embody their creativity and adorn themselves with rad sparkly things. Piercings are a great and healthy outlet to blow off some steam and destress. The ability to experience a minimal amount of physical pain can be a great distraction from emotional pain, and it helps someone realize how strong they really are.
Bad break up? Get a piercing! Lost your job? Piercing! Global warming? You guessed it, piercing!
As piercers we always say that its like a mini therapy session every time you get jabbed. I like to help my client get through all their fears and worries and give them an overall positive experience and an amazing piece that compliments their anatomy and turns heads.
I love creating fun and unique ear constellations! Being creative is a big part of my job and I love being able to put my creativity to use!
I also love a good daith piercing! They are super fun to pierce and always make my clients ear look awesome!

Funny/ memorable experience in the studio:
We have so many funny and unique clients in the studio every day, its hard to choose just one experience! I love the diversity of everyone’s personalities, they’re all a pleasure to pierce.
What I enjoy about piercing:
I love the confidence a new piercing can give my clients, seeing them walk out with more confidence is the whole reason I love to pierce, especially after someone has had a tough time and they wanted to treat themselves with something sparkly, it always leaves people smiling a bit more and standing a bit taller.
Favourite piercing to perform:
Cool curated ear projects are always super rad, but septum piercings will always be my favourite.
