Me

I had a passion for body modification since as long as I can remember. Growing up I didn’t know many people who shared my interests and found it difficult expressing myself, but as I gained years and friends – they encouraged me to take my interest in body piercing to a professional level. Thanks guys! I began my apprenticeship when I was 19. From those humble beginnings in Western Sydney, my passion for my work and my girlfriend have developed into full on obsessions. I strive to give not only the best possible unique body modification but also the service and support that goes along with it.joel_02

Around November 2010 I opened my first studio, First Blood (which was later re-named Stone Heart). In 2012 I opened my second studio, Opal Heart, where I spend most of my time working these days.  When I’m not working or resting, I’m tinkering with electronics or trying to “fix” one of my motorbikes. I like to have fun, not take life too seriously and most importantly cuddle lots of kitties!

Most of all, thanks to all the people who put up with my wackiness over the years. I know I can be a bit of a difficult person to deal with when I’m obsessing about one of my projects and know that I appreciate it more than I can say.

Also gotta give some <3 to all of my regular clients and friends who have supported me since day one. I continue to grow as a person and an artist thanks to the freedom you give me to do what I does. xoxo to ma parents; without your reproductive organs I literally wouldn’t exist. =^_^= Thanks for gettin’ freaky!
