I’ve had MANY piercings over the years and now I think I have the fewest of anyone else in the company. I currently only wear jewelry in my nostril piercings and my septum piercing.
I have two – my double nostril piercings. They were my first two piercings. They’re a part of me now and I can’t envision myself without them.
I love doing microdermal piercings! Dermals can be placed just about anywhere on the body so I always get excited when a client says there are getting one. I enjoy helping the piercee decide on jewelry, helping them choose a placement, and seeing their expression when they see the outcome.
I started working at Almost Famous in Fargo when I was 16. It was actually my very first job. I loved working with body jewelry, was intrigued by piercings, and loved the fast paced environment. I quickly decided that I had to be a body piercer. Shortly after I turned 18, I moved to Minneapolis and shortly after that, we opened our Mall of America location, which is when I became a body piercer!
I love all of the opportunities that I get while being an Almost Famous Body Piercer. I am not only a body piercer within the company, but also a Manager, CPR and First Aid Instructor, Bloodborne Pathogens teacher, and train our piercing technicians.
Body piercing also dates back to over 5,000 years ago. The oldest mummified body had pierced ears! It’s so interesting to me how far body piercing has come over the years, even since the 90’s, and I love being a part of that evolution.
I love our diverse clientele! We get people of all ages, of all backgrounds, all wanting something pierced for a different reason.
I have a hedgehog, snake, cat, and currently in the process of adopting a dog, so when I’m not working, I’m usually doing something with my animals. I love being outdoors and hiking, camping, or kayaking. I spend a lot of my free time painting/sketching, reading, playing harmonica/tin whistle, listening to records, and baking/cooking vegan goodies 🙂
