I got a couple of rebellious piercings when I was a teacher restricted by rules on appearance and it really helped me feel more myself again.

I’d always wanted to do something meaningful and I realised how meaningful my piercings had been to me when I felt a little lost. Having the opportunity to do that for someone else gives me so much joy and I can safely say I love my job.

It’s been an incredible opportunity to train under Tiff and work alongside such a fantastic team like Doc Black Ink. I used to come here for all my piercings so to have the chance to work here is a dream come true.

I look forward to continuing my piercing journey at Doc Black Ink and adding to my growing portfolio!
