She joined The Piercing Urge in 2015 where she now specialises in large gauge and genital piercings as well as ear styling and curation. Suzanne is very passionate about body piercing, education, and the piercing industry. She is always aspiring to improve her practises and can often be found teaching and mentoring other piercers.

As a teenager Emily was captivated with the ability to permanently modify your body. She then spent a couple of years hanging out in piercing shops, hoping someone would teach her how, until she finally began piercing in 2016. Emily’s passion for the craft drives her creativity and enjoyment of unique piercings and wild ear curations. She connects with the emotional aspect of piercing and loves to be a part of experiences that can create permanent modification to the body, and emotional connection between the practitioner and the client. Emily is also very skilled at creative gothic makeup, and you may have the joy of seeing one of her amazing looks in the studio one day.

Ebs began piercing professionally in 2018 after spending her teenage years dreaming of being a part of the industry. She is obsessed with furthering her knowledge and growing her skills.

In early 2017 Frankie saw a studio in Sydney advertising for a piercing apprenticeship, and she immediately moved out of home to pursue it. As a teenager, body piercing made Frankie feel good about themself. It gave them confidence in their own skin and the ability to control how they looked. Because of her own experience, Frankie loves being able to share moments like this with her own clients, especially those who haven't gotten many piercings yet. They also enjoy many other forms of art such as painting, drawing and digital art.

In his early 20's, Adam was on a school excursion at a science lab where he was bitten by a radioactive piercer. Instead of getting sick like one would expect, he developed super-powers such as "eye for detail," "ear styling," and the ever useful "piercer-sense." Not yet understanding his powers, Adam kept them quiet until the fateful day he saw his Uncle Ben shot and killed with a piercing gun. Knowing that with great power comes great responsibility, from that day Adam vowed to use his powers for good and has been battling unsafe piercing practices and non-aesthetically pleasing piercings all across Australia ever since.
Adam has been piercing since 2008 and with international experience, your safety and satisfaction are always the top priority.

Lola joined the team in late 2022 as part of our counter staff team. She has a particular soft spot for large gauge jewellery and children’s piercings, and is always happy to assist those a little nervous about their appointment by putting their nerves at ease and ensuring they are informed, comfortable, and excited about their new piercing!
You can also catch her scurrying around behind the scenes, darting in and out of the shadows cleaning, and assisting the piercers. She is our local cryptid and always happy to help you find your next perfect piece. (Just make sure not to feed her after midnight or spill any water on her.)
