When I was 12 years old, I walked into a tattoo studio and was enamored by the people I saw, adorning their bodies with tattoos and piercings. I fell in love with that freedom of choice! It's an empowering feeling, to mold your own style and the way you present yourself to the world. I started my career in the piercing and tattoo industry at Dragon FX in 2004 behind the counter where I learned the basics with customer service. I was lucky enough to meet some amazing people that would help me along the road with my piercing career once Atomic Zombie was born in 2007. I apprenticed under Amanda Chisholm who showed me that piercing isn't just a simple procedure, but can also be a great experience. I've been lucky enough to continue my education by attending the annual APP conference for nearly a decade, and continue to learn every day from my amazing coworkers, Sarai and Aliya. I truly want every customer to have a genuinely awesome time whether they are visiting Atomic Zombie or getting pierced or tattooed. My favorite piercings to perform are septums, vertical lips, and various ear placements, but I am always happy to help any individual with choosing something special to suit their taste. I also offer ear piercings for minors (with parental consent) from age 5+ with a same-day preliminary consultation. I truly love being a body piercer and am always happy to chat with anyone about their next piercing project. Swing by Atomic Zombie and see me! Extra points go to those that bring tasty treats!
