I have been in the body piercing and body modification industry since 1998.
Body modification/body hacking are my passion, and I have had an interest in these practices since a child. I since being in the industry worked and studied and continue to, both within Australia and the USA.
I enjoy all aspects of body piercing and modification and have a love for performing skarification work, and other piercing and body modifications that aren't the main stream norm.
I have a great bed side manner and try to guide each person through their piercing experience with the upmost respect and make their journy a comfortable, clean, and virtualy pain free experience.
Body modification has been around for many centuries and the philosophies, motivations and reasons people modify there bodies are different for each individual or each tribe.
Body modifications such as piercing, branding, skarification and tattooing have been used by tribal cultures in the past and in some parts of the world today as a rite of passage into adult hood, or to mark an important event in life, birth marrige or death etc etc. The motivations of body modification today in modern day scociety differ form tribal culture, and although we modify our selves in similar ways today our motivations, philosophies and psycologys as to why we modify our bodies today are very very different.
Some people modify there bodies to achieve a look that is athstetically pleasing to themselves, which may sometime be adverse to the scociety norm, some to rebel, or sefl expertion, sexual gratification or sometimes to mark a point in life. I believe that regardless of your choice on how you modify your body, that we shouldn't judge people on there outer shell. Body modification is no different to coloring your hair, or painting your nails, cosmetic surgery, or body building, it's just a diferent way of expersing ones self and doing what makes ones self feel comfortable with themselves in the broder spectrum of things.
