I have 5 tattoos and 4 hip dermals.
When did you get your first piercing?
My first piercing I was still an infant and it was my ears. My navel was my first body piercing and my nostril was my first facial piercings.
Why did you get your piercings?
I usually just saw piercings that I liked and did loads of research to see if I wanted them for sure.
Which piercing is your favorite and why? Do you have a favorite pierced celebrity/model/actress that inspires/influences your piercing and body jewelry choice?
My favorite piercing is probably my daith or my hip dermals. And Chris Cerulli/Motionless is my favorite pierced celeb.
Do you have a favorite piece of body jewelry?
Anything of mine that is opal or sparkly!
What was your experience with your piercings when you were actually getting pierced? Would you say it was painful or not at all or somewhere in between?
I honestly didn’t feel any of my piercings except my triple forward helix and IT WAS PAINFUL!
Are you looking to get more piercings or are you about maxed out?
I’m looking to get a few more in my ears like my tragus and conch then I may be done, may get more dermals.
Do you have a piercing you regret getting? If so, why?
I do not.
What is your favorite body jewelry for you piercings? For instance, do you prefer simple, steel barbells or elaborate dangling body jewelry and why?
Anything sparkly works for me!
How does having your piercings make you feel? Does it help you stand out, make a statement, make you feel more unique, etc?
It makes me feel bold, people stare but it doesn’t bother me, I’ve had people tell me that I fit my face piercings so well that they didn’t even notice them till I pointed them out
Does your employer or school restrict you in any way with your piercings or body art, or are they supportive?
My school doesn’t care, which is amazing.
If you could give one vital piece of advice to someone who is new to piercings, what would it be?
RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH! NEVER EVER GO TO A BAD PIERCER/TATTOO ARTIST OR DO IT YOURSELF OR FROM A FRIEND! That’s the worst way to get an infection!
