Started tattooing on her 18th birthday and has been tattooing half her life. She loves tattooing anything from flash to custom work; you bring it in she'll put it on your body. Marcianna is also a people person, she loves connecting with every person she tattoos and once the tattoo is done you're like family.
Jerry took an interest in body piercing way back in 1986 with his first lobe piercing. It wasn't until the late 90's that he started stretching his earlobes and truly learning about the possibilities of body adornment with metal, glass, acrylic, and more. In 2004 he started pursuing a piercing apprenticeship at Painless Steel which he managed to catch up with in April 2008. "I strive to learn as much as I can about body piercing safely, professionally, and expertly. My focus is on making the client as comfortable as possible and making every piercing look perfect. My favorite piercing is anything that makes my client smile and shout 'I love it!' when I show them their new piercing clean and completed."
