I have been a Piercer since I was 17 (2009) unfortunately I couldn’t call myself a professional until 2012. While traveling; without knowing it at the time, I visited an APP studio in New York. I must have visited 20 shops on the same street before I felt safe enough to get work done. After that visit I knew there was something missing. The most important component to a good procedure, quality jewelry. I knew I had to excel my methods and produce what my clients deserve. I started researching and reading about every avenue of body modification I could get my hands on. I knew if I ever wanted to be notable in this industry exactly what I had to do. I approached my current boss with the new knowledge I gained, it became clear to me this step was not going to take place at my current location. I quit, knowing I could not keep in good conscience if I continued piercing this way.
Along this journey I did find a shop that was the next step. This is where I eliminated external threads for good, and didn’t touch a piece that wasn’t of implant grade materials. The difference in healing was mind blowing. For the next two years I expanded to freehand techniques in all cartilage areas and genitals. I noticed in most procedures I didn’t have a single drop of blood leave my clients body. It felt amazing knowing the less trauma I created the safer my clients felt, and the faster it healed. Today, I have the same passion I did almost eight years ago when this whole quest started. I’m looking for a shop that will allow me to further my path, and continually strive to evolve with the APP standards. The goal itself if to become a member and work in an approved shop. I know at this point in my life the only thing I’ve ever been in love with is being a Piercer. Handing over that mirror and watching the reaction on my clients face as they marvel in their own bravery. I could give you another 100 reasons why pursuing this career was the best decision I have ever made. To this day, it still kills me this life is even possible. I’m willing to pick up and leave everything I have here to further my passion in this industry. Even if that means living in a shitty motel until I get on my feet in this new city. I have a digital portfolio I’m 100% willing to send along with reference to the shops I’ve worked in. Completely certified here in Ohio, but can easily obtain what ever necessary your state may need.
Willing to relocate
I would like to work with APP members.
