Hi! My name is Lisa and basically I’ve been interested in tattoos and piercings for about as long as I can remember. I actually remember being around 4 or 5 and being out with my mom and seeing a girl with a septum piercing, turning to my mom and saying very loudly, “Mom, I thought only bulls had rings in their noses!” Hahaha, I was hooked since then!
I first came into Adept in 2007 for a tattoo from Amber. I was back in about a year later just to ask some tips on putting together a portfolio. They gave me some and also let me know that they already had an apprentice but were looking for a counter person. So back in I was with a resume and the mentality that this would never happen to me, all my previous work experiences were all pretty much different types of cleaning jobs. Little did I know, that was exactly what Amber was looking for! So with my foot in the door, my goal was to work my way up. After A LOT of hard work, I learned to pierce and now am starting to tattoo. I love this industry and feel so lucky to be a part of it. This definitely is not just a job, it’s my entire life.
