Pineapple has been piercing since 2000 and is the main modification artist at Shaman Modifications. He graduated from Kent State University with a double major in Anthropology and Archaeology with a focus on the social significance of body modification in Meso-american cultures.
He moved to Austin in 2005 where he met his mentor, Bear, who was his most influential teacher and the source of the majority of his knowledge and expertise in the body modification field.
Pineapple started Shaman Body Piercing & Modifications, inside Golden Apple Studios, in May of 2006 when his employer, Mercy Body Piercing, left.
Shaman has grown and expanded over the years and now has Shaman Modifications Tattoo & Body Piercing in North Austin, Shaman Modifications Body Piercing in East Austin and Shaman Modifications Body Piercing in Dallas.
Pineapple will be not be providing services for the rest of 2023 while he recovers from surgery. Please email him to be put on the list for when his books re-open.
Children's lobe piercing consults (ages 5-9, no consultation needed for minors older than 10) are ALL done virtually through Zoom at this time. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on the upcoming session.
