Amanda began her piercing career in January 2007.
Her apprenticeship at Monster Ink in St. Paul was very hands on. She pierced pretty much her whole way through it, thanks to understanding and supportive friends. Amanda has also formed a large network of resources to continue expanding her skills and knowledge. Amanda has also done a lot of self teaching by constantly studying and researching different techniques, ideas, aftercare, jewelry, tools, trends, ect. She is committed to attending the Association of Professional Piercers annual conference, and has done so since 2007. Amanda is certified in Adult CPR, and First Aid Basics through the American Red Cross, as well as the Blood-borne Pathogens course by the Association of Professional Piercers. And of course, she is a licensed body piercer in Hennepin County.
