Mark

My name is Mark and I am the Body Piercer here at Body Works Tattoo Studio. As a teen I was always into fashion and found piercings stylish. In high school I decided to do an apprenticeship for body piercings by a well-known local body piercer. I would observe, assist, inquire and learn from him and practice the techniques. I continuously practiced and once my confidence grew and I had a good grasp of the techniques I would pierce friends and family under the supervision of my mentor. From there I began piercing on my own. A few years later I decided to seek out another well-known piercer as a mentor in order to expand my knowledge in the piercing world and learn new techniques. From there I learned new methods and implemented them into my current piercing techniques. It has given me different perspective on how to approach some piercings.
 
On my personal time, I love to dine-out and some of my favourite foods include pasta (penne alla vodka), pizza and steak with a nice glass of red wine. I am a sport fanatic and am really big on soccer, basketball and hockey. I love watching the games live or on television. I also enjoy exercising at the gym as it requires discipline, commitment and teaches me a lot about my body. What I have learned from my hobbies whether it be the chefs cooking great food, watching athletes working hard and having great performances, or the consistency and discipline required to maintain a healthy lifestyle by exercising is that practice makes perfect. I believe practice combined with consistency will help you achieve great things.
