Though you may not often see her behind the counter, she gets to have a hand in almost every aspect of the studio. She’s our in-store operations manager, overseeing everything from jewelry ordering to schedule-writing and more, and also manages the online store inventory. She says, “It’s a blessing that I get to fawn over new jewelry for a living, and I love that I’m able to help share all of it with the rest of the Philly piercing-fanatics!”
She’s a self-proclaimed work-a-holic but strongly believes in the “work hard, play hard” motto. When Jessica is not at the shop you can find her exploring the city, splurging on books (they’re piling up as we speak, she says), at the “doomiest” metal shows she can find and dragging her boyfriend to every hiking trail in the Northeast. At her core, Jess loves all things strange and unusual, and body modification is a big part of that. Her enthusiasm for the industry was realized at the age of 14, as soon as her mom was willing to take her in for a piercing (other than earlobes). It was this enthusiasm and appreciation that got her foot in the door in the industry, and it’s what keeps her there today.
