Meet the Piercers

 

 

Bruna Fabbri

When did you start piercing, and why did you start? I have been piercing for 10 years and have worked for myself as well as multiple brands. Ever since I can remember I have always loved piercings! I started getting pierced at a very young age and developed a strong interest in all aspects of piercing. Piercing is a true passion of mine. Plus, it's such a fun environment.

What’s your favorite piercing and why? I like all ear piercings – I don’t really have a favorite! I like to combine them and use different types of jewelry to make the ear look pretty.

Have you pierced anyone famous? Yes I have! In my time at Astrid and Miyu, I’ve pierced Lydia Millen, Ferne McCann, Sophie Haboo and Sam Thompson!

When did you start piercing, and why did you start? I’ve been working as a piercer for around 15 years. I was taught and worked as a piercer in Berlin (in one of the oldest and most known tattoo shops).I love piercing and I enjoy piercing more and more everyday.

What’s your favorite piercing and why? I love all ear piercings – but I think my favorite is the Outer Conch piercing. I like the way the jewelry looks like on the flat part of the ear and you notice it straight away.

Have you pierced anyone famous? I don't really remember if I pierced someone famous. We do so many piercings daily It’s hard to remember, but I like to treat all my customers like they are a celebrity.

When did you start piercing, and why did you start?  I kind of fell into piercing while I was working at a hospital. I had a lot of piercing friends who suggested I should train in piercing, and when I got made redundant I thought why not become a piercer full time! I have now been a piercer for 7 years and I absolutely love it.

What’s your favorite piercing and why? I love the Daith piercing, it's a challenge to pierce but it is the perfect 'secret' piercing. Also A&M do a range of pretty jewelry that look great in that space.

Have you pierced anyone famous? While working at Astrid and Miyu, I’ve been able to pierce the likes of Deliciously Ella and Samantha Maria. They were so lovely!

Jessica Mcleod

When did you start piercing, and why did you start? I started piercing in 2015 - a girl I knew worked in a tattoo shop near me and she knew I was into piercings, so I had an interview where she worked and got the job! Originally I just wanted to do tattoos, but since learning how to pierce I've come to really love it.

What’s your favorite piercing and why? The conch is my favorite piercing. It's the most central point of the ear, so you're always drawn to it. It's also quite versatile - you can wear hoops or studs in it. In one of mine I have three studs and I love how that looks.

Have you pierced anyone famous?I've pierced a few influencers since starting at Astrid and Miyu -Anna Shearer from lefashionfetish and Simran Randhawa. The woman who taught me how to pierce was Daryll from Love Island - I worked with her for two months! I also pierced at the Lydia Millen event which was fun.
