Annie has been fascinated by piercings and many forms of body modification since she was very young, growing up she remembers thinking how fun and unique these could be for each specific person. As she got older she began to finally tap into that love and started getting piercings for herself. After many trips to see local piercers and lots of questions she ended up taking her first position in a studio as counter staff at the age of 21 and her interest in that world began to grow even more.
After finishing her apprenticeship in Orlando, Florida she finally got the chance to fulfill her dream into a reality. Annie has now been professionally piercing full-time since 2014 and spends much of that time trying to learn new and safer techniques to make things easier for each client she interacts with. She takes the safety and well-being of each person that she gets the opportunity to work with quite seriously and works very hard to make sure the process is an enjoyable one, from the initial procedure all the way through the healing process.
Annie moved to Dallas in April of 2019 to join the Shaman team and has been a proud member of the Association of Professional Piercers since the start of 2020. She cannot wait to keep growing and using her passion for body piercing to continue her education within the industry. She’s a sucker for ear projects and symmetry, getting the chance to curate a full look from start to finish, and has quite the passion for gold and genuine gemstones.
Next time you’re in Dallas make sure to stop by and chat with her about your next piercing idea, she would love to help you out!
