I have always enjoyed piercings and the uniqueness they bring to an individual. I started piercing as a part time job in college, but I ended up falling in love with the job and the company. So after graduation, I decided to make it my career, and I could not be happier.
I just love to pierce – the medical aspect and science of it, the specific techniques used, and most of all, the customer’s excitement for their new piercing. I also love all of the opportunities that I’ve been given to grow with the company – becoming General Manager, a Piercing Instructor, BLS Certified Instructor, a Bloodborne Pathogens Instructor, and so much more.
I really enjoy how diverse our customers are and their piercing stories. Everyone has a different reason for getting their particular piercing(s) – from aesthetics to self-empowerment – and it really adds an interesting and important dynamic to what we do as body piercers.
Outside of work, I enjoy knitting, reading (especially in Norwegian and sometimes Russian), working out, and playing video games. I also spend a lot of time with my family running our steam engine and attending steam shows around MN and ND.

“I recently had my nose pierced and got a daith piercing done by Amanda at the Fargo store. I was extremely nervous to have this done but she was cheery and friendly and she put me right at ease. I love my piercings and was very happy with the professional atmosphere of the shop!”
