What date did you begin piercing?

September 2011

How many piercings do you personally have?

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.

What is your favorite piercing you have?

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.

What is your favorite piercing to do on others?

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.

Why did you want to be an Almost Famous Body Piercer?

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!

What is your favorite thing about being an Almost Famous 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.

What do you enjoy about our customers?

I love our diverse clientele! We get people of all ages, of all backgrounds, all wanting something pierced for a different reason.

What are your hobbies outside of body piercing?

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 🙂
