What do you love most about piercing?
I love that there are no two types of anatomy that are the same. Whether its ears, nose, navel, nipples etc, they are all different which makes each piercing I do more interesting. It’s awesome too when customers come in and want something different even with different jewellery like rose gold and black together and bling….omg lots of bling!
What piercing are you most proud of?
Over the past 2 years that I have been piercing with Off Ya Tree/Punktured, one of the piercings I have grown to be proud of myself with, is industrials. I used to be intimidated when performing them especially since I didn’t have a chance to do many in the beginning, but now, I do them with confidence and really love doing them. I like also that they are more technical that some other piercing. A challenge is always fun!
Medusa/Philtrum are my absolute fave piercing to perform! I don’t know what it is about them that I love, but I just love doing them. I think they are super duper cute especially in rose gold or a little gem on top. A double stacked philtrim is definitely something I would love to perform on someone. Second to philtrim, I would have to said the rook. It would be a dream (given the right anatomy) to do a double or triple rook.
Funny anecdotes/quotes/experiences in the studio:
Favourite Quote to anyone who isn’t sure whether to get a piercing or not
“Bucket, Why Not”
(like the KFC ad)
Favourite piercing to perform:
Ahhh, good ol’ Septum! I just think that a septum piercing suits absolutely anyone! It can be flipped up and hidden when needed and there are so many mint jewellery options for once it has healed 😊
What I enjoy most about piercing:
I really enjoy being able to put a smile on someone’s face by making their vision come to life! I also love my job because it is my only creative outlet as I am real rubbish when it comes to drawing and painting etc haha! Overall, I just simply love the satisfaction I feel from it 😊
Piercing that I am proud of:
Daiths always used to scare the life out of me ‘cause it’s such a tricky area BUT I absolutely love doing them now that I have practiced more and more! It is so satisfying seeing the end result, especially with a nice titanium curved barbell 😊
