New Updates for 2016

   It has been awhile since anything was posted on here, it is time I get around to posting some updates. Near the end of the summer I did a bit of travelling to Nova Scotia and Vancouver for a couple of guest spots as I mentioned in previous posts. Since then I have been working at Exotix Studios, Toronto’s first and only high-end piercing studio. We use luxury body jewelry from companies such as Anatometal, Neometal and Body Vision Los Angeles. It is a breath of fresh air to be finally working with these companies. We work by appointment only so book in by giving the studio a call at 416.259.9361. We are located on the south-east corner of Queen and Spadina at 163 Spadina Ave. on the second floor.

   Now that 2016 is here I aim to be more active on here and update my portfolio. My APP certificate came in the mail awhile back and that is now posted. Since the holidays came and went I destroyed a laptop by accident that set me back from posting anything. In other news outside of piercing I’ve been booked to work on TV shows, one of them aired recently called “The Expanse”. Look out for me on there ;)

Elemental Body Adornment

   I just finished up a guest spot at Elemental Body Adornment in Victoria, BC. It was a fun few days piercing along side Vicky Williams, we got to do a couple of tandem piercings as well because two body piercers piercing you is better than one! If you happen to be in the area be sure to drop by the studio for the best high end jewelry available. Follow Vicky’s piercing shenanigans and a large collection of gorgeous body jewellery on social media; Facebook and instagram!

   For those of you that don’t know I am no longer piercing at the Ace and Sword Tattoo Parlour on Lakeshore, Etobicoke. I am taking a little break from piercing and will let you know of my future endeavors in the industry although I won’t be straying very far for long. I have some great news to share in the near future but I can say I’ll be working the counter at Skin Decision in Truro, NS from August 19-22nd. To further improve and educate myself as a body piercer I will be shadowing APP member Julie Taylor during my stay so if you’re in the area drop by and say hello.
