When did you discover your love for body modification?
I discovered my love for body modification when I was around 9 years old – back in 2004. My dad is heavily tattooed so that was a big influence for me.
When did you get your first piercing? What was it? What’s the story behind it?
I got my first piercing when I was 11 – a nose ring. I remember falling in love with that piercing after going to a tattoo shop with my dad and seeing one of the girls working there who had one. I call can remember is telling my dad how much I wanted one. He took me to get it for my birthday.
How many piercings do you have?
I have nine. I used to have 12 but I retired my medusa and snake bites.
What do you like about getting pierced?
I kind of like the fear of whether or not it will hurt. LOL! Also, tending to the piercings during the healing process.
Why do you get piercings?
I really like how they look and it’s a lifestyle I enjoy.
What is your most recent piercing?
My right nipple.
What is your favorite piercing?
Definitely my bridge piercing.
Can you tell us about the ear stretching process?
My ear stretching process was horrible. I made the mistake of stretching too fast and skipping sizes, which is something nobody should do because it really damages your ear lobes. Blowouts are horrible. When I reached 7/8”, I couldn’t keep stretching my ears because they hurt all the time and would constantly blow out. I reached out to my close friend, who is a body modification artist and he cut off the blow outs and did some scalpeling. Since then, I’ve taken very good care of my ears. I used H2Ocean to help them heal and it took about a month. My ears are in perfect condition now.
What size plugs do you have? Are you planning to go larger?
Currently, I’m at 1-inch and I’d like to continue until they are about 1 ½-inches.
Which piercing hurt the most?
I have to say my septum. I actually cried.
Any advice for people who may want to get piercings?
Make sure you really want the piercing and take good care of it once it’s done.
If you could have dinner with three people, dead or alive, who would it be?
Chris Motionless, Oliver Sykes, and Ricky Horror.
If you could time travel, where would you go and why?
Back to the 1500’s. I would have loved to be the Queen of England or something. Haha!
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
