Piercing since 1990
I opened 23sbp in 1995. I have been a member of the Association of Professional Piercers since 1996. I have been an educator for the APP and BMX net (Europe). I have served as a consult for the Oklahoma State Department of Health during the writing of the Tattoo and Piercing regulations. I continue to be a hands on piercer, you can find me in a piercing room several days a week.
Piercing Since 1997
I have been piercing since 1997, and I have been a member of the APP since 2007. I am originally from Chicago. I am a freehand piercer (meaning I use fewer tools). I am a regular speaker at the APP conference in Las Vegas and Seminars in Mexico. I am a certified instructor for First Aid, CPR and Blood Borne Pathogens. Tambien yo hablo Español
Piercing Since 2003
I am originally from Chicago where I managed an institution in Chicago's tattoo and piercing world for several years. It was in a high volume studio I honed my skills as a piercer and learned the ins and outs of this dynamic industry. I left Chicago when I was asked to be an instructor of piercing technique for an education company in our industry. I have been privileged enough to travel all over the country teaching both freehand piercing techniques and surface anchor technique. I am currently based at 23rd Street Body Piercing and am happy to be here. I plan on using my time here to continue to make people look and feel a little shinier through piercing and to finish my degree in Anthropology.
