Lead Piercer and Shop Manager

I am the Head Piercer here at Hammers as well as the shop manager. I've been piercing here for 19 years now (2019). I started out as a customer getting tattooed and pierced here. I became friends with the owner which quickly turned into a job. I started out running the front room, answering the phone, cleaning, and sterilizing. In doing this I learned all the ins and outs of the business. About a year in I started an apprenticeship with Clifton Boggs who was the piercer here at that time. He taught me many things and I wouldn't be the piercer I am today without him. He also brought me into the Association of Professional Piercers. When he moved on from Hammers I became the piercer here, and have been ever since. I am also a member of the National safety council, and a certified CPR, First Aid, and Blood Borne Pathogen Instructor. I've learned a lot over the years and pride myself on giving you the best possible piercing experience
