Laura began her piercing career right here in Ann Arbor in 2010.  After apprenticing, she decided to head West and began piercing full time at both Jori Zan’s Body Piercing in Salem Oregon, and then Adorn Body Art in Portland Oregon.  

After a few years in Oregon, Laura relocated to Providence RI to work at Rockstar Body Piercing, where she pierced until 2015.  Jef and Laura then relocated to Ann Arbor to start their family.

Laura has extensive piercing training, including the Fakir Basic Piercing Intensive, the Fakir Advanced Piercing Intensive, as well as dozens of classes at the Association or Professional Piercers conferences in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Laura is an instructor and course contributor to both the Fakir Intensives and Advanced Fundamentals.

Laura is a long-time member of the Association of Professional Piercers. She served as chair of the Outreach Committee from 2013-2015.
