Kenny - Senior Body Piercer
Kenny has always been intrigued with the art of body modification, besides his passion of tattooing he decided to add to his knowledge of body art by becoming a licensed piercer. Not only has he been artistically poking holes for well over 13 years he has also taught his craft to others seeking to learn it. The art of body piercing has become very popular in more recent years, though the art of piercing is far from new, one of the oldest piercings dates back 5,000 years ago. There are many reasons why people get piercings such as: religious, conforming to culture, rebel against, sexual pleasure or just aesthetic value. There are many different kinds of piercings that are offered. If you have any questions feel free to talk to one of our piercers. We as artists believe in safety first, To become a piercer in the state of Massachusetts it is mandatory to have taken courses in human anatomy, Skin and physiology. We've also been trained and certified in CPR, Blood-borne Pathogens and First Aid.
Bunnie - Professional Body Piercer
Bunnie is originally from a small town in upstate NY where the population of livestock triples the population of actual people, kind of like something from a weird Stephen King novel. Since that time she has moved around the country exploring the different parts of the U.S., She has grown to see the diversity in the body modification world amongst all the different places she’s been. She first got into piercing when she got her navel pierced while Christmas shopping (treat yo self) when she was 14. From that point forward she hasn’t stopped wanting to learn and explore the different piercings and how they can complement the body. Bunnie started her internship with Flyin’ Aces Tattoo by being a social media manager and receptionist. Since interning her goal has been to become a body piercer. Getting her apprenticeship has opened that door for her. She strives for perfection in her work. Bunnie is now a fully certified, licensed piercer. If you’re looking into getting a piercing, Bunnie will ensure that any questions you have are answered before the piercing takes place, and see to it that you receive both written and verbal aftercare afterward. For the life of your piercing Bunnie offers free consultations, to make sure your piercing is healing proper and to answer any other questions that may arise!

When the opportunity presented to become a Body Piercing Apprentice, Michelle knew it was the next right step in her journey to serve! Bringing forth all of her Nursing knowledge, surgical/medical experience, her artistic creative background, her knowledge and wisdom, along with her excitement to learn and provide something new, Michelle is proud and honored to be a part of the crew at Flyin’ Aces Tattoo & Piercing. “I am beyond the beyond excited to return to my CREATIVE ROOTS! When I left art school for medical school some decades ago, I never imagined I would someday learn the ancient modality of body art and become a Professional Body Piercer. Being submersed in the artistic environment of the Studio and learning from some of the best in the industry… it is both an honor and privilege to be learning from Kenny and Bunnie! I love being able to help the Tattoo Artists in any creative ways, and look forward to learning all that I can!” Michelle, proudly adorned with several new piercings embellishing her own vessel, feels a strong calling to spread the message of self-expression and liberation. “We have the choice to allow our inner Self-expression to emerge… and the ancient art of body modification can be quite liberating and empowering!” Michelle is a Licensed RN, BSN, serving the community for over 20 years. She has spent the past 6 years in the surgical setting, providing pre-and-post operative care to patients undergoing surgery and procedures.

Michelle also holds her Associate of Science in Medical Lab Science and is CPR Certified (Basic and Advanced Cardiac Life Support). Michelle has a nurturing demeanor, she strives to provide a positive experience for every client, for every piercing. “Piercing should be a memorable experience not just a procedure. I love to be a part of someone’s special reason they came in, whether it be friends, sisters, parent-son/daughter… and to see their face light up ~ their soul radiate when they look in the mirror at their new piercing… it’s so rewarding and such an honor! Just as every scar tells a life story, so does every piercing and tattoo!” When not in the shop, Michelle finds time for things that ignite her light: time with family, her sweet Frenchie “Coco”, outdoors in nature, yoga, sound and energy healing, studying all things science, metaphysics, astrology, and a return to her fond love of creative art and watercolors. Michelle is also a Reiki Master, Energy and Sound Practitioner, and Yoga Teacher. The body is the vessel that houses the Soul, allow your Creative Roots to emerge!

What to use
- Sterile saline solution or (Neilmed Piercing Aftercare) that we carry at the shop. If you would like a alternative remedy see below:
- Packaged sterile saline solution with no additives (read the label), or a non-iodized sea salt mixture: Dissolve 1/4 teaspoon of non-iodized (iodine-free) sea salt into one cup (8 oz.) of warm distilled or bottled water. A stronger mixture is not better; a saline solution that is too strong can irritate the piercing
- A mild, fragrance-free liquid soap preferably anti-microbial or germicidal.
How to use it
- WASH... your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching your piercing for any reason.
- SALINE... Use sterile saline to remove any residue around your piercing 2 to 3 times per day. Be sure to use a clean cotton ball or Q-tip.
- SOAP... no more than once or twice a day. While showering, lather up a pearl size drop of the soap to clean the jewelry and the piercing. Leave the cleanser on the piercing no more than thirty seconds.
- RINSE... thoroughly to remove all traces of the soap from the piercing. It is not necessary to rotate the jewelry through the piercing.
- DRY... by gently patting with clean, disposable paper products. Cloth towels can harbor bacteria and snag on jewelry, causing injury.
- Initially: some bleeding, localized swelling, tenderness, or bruising.
- During Healing: some discoloration, itching, secretion of a whitish-yellow fluid (not pus) that will form some crust on the jewelry. The tissue may tighten around the jewelry as it heals.
- Once Healed: the jewelry may not move freely in the piercing; do not force it. If you fail to include cleaning your piercing as part of your daily hygiene routine, normal but smelly bodily secretions may accumulate.
- A piercing may seem healed before the healing process is complete. This is because tissue heals from the outside in, and although it feels fine, the interior remains fragile. Be patient, and keep cleaning throughout the entire healing period.
- Even healed piercings can shrink or close in minutes after having been there for years! This varies from person to person; if you like your piercing, keep jewelry in—do not leave it empty
WHAT TO AVOID
- Avoid cleaning with Betadine®, Hibiciens®, Alcohol, Hydrogen Peroxide, Dial® or other harsh soaps, as these can damage cells. Also avoid ointments as they prevent necessary air circulation.
- Avoid Bactine®, pierced ear care solutions and other products containing Benzalkonium Chloride (BZK). These can be irritating and are not intended for long term wound care.
- Avoid over-cleaning, this can delay your healing and irritate your piercing.
- Avoid undue trauma such as friction from clothing, excessive motion of the area, playing with the jewelry, and vigorous cleaning. These activities can cause the formation of unsightly and uncomfortable scar tissue, migration, prolonged healing, and other complications.
- Avoid all oral contact, rough play, and contact with others' bodily fluids on or near your piercing during healing.
- Avoid stress and recreational drug use... including excessive caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol.
- Avoid submerging the piercing in unhygienic bodies of water such as lakes, pools, hot tubs, etc... or protect your piercing using a waterproof wound-sealant bandage (such as 3M™ Nexcare™ Clean Seals). These are available at most drugstores.
- Avoid all beauty and personal care products on or around the piercing including cosmetics, lotions, and sprays, etc.
- Don't hang charms or any object from your jewelry until the piercing is fully healed.
