Meet The Staff
Hi, I’m Lilly and I’ve been a part of the Adorn family since 2013. I’ve you’ve ever contacted us through social media, you’ve probably spoken to me and had to deal with my excessive enthusiasm. I’ve been fascinated with body modification since I was a young girl and consider adorning one’s self to be one of the most exciting and intimate forms of self expression. It was inevitable that my passion for body art eventually turned into a beloved and fulfilling career. I’ve been a proud member of the body modification industry since 2007 and now happily help manage Adorn from behind the scenes, but sometimes you’ll catch me frolicking behind the counter of either studio. Come say hello and let’s talk about your next adornment!
Gabi is a sweetheart and the master of the West side counter. She’s always excited and willing to help you find the right tattooist to create your ideas into a reality or help you find the most perfect piece of jewelry for your piercing. Don’t be shy to ask her any questions, nothing is ever too small if it helps put your mind at ease or quells your curiosity. Creating a memorable and comfortable experience is her goal! Gabi enjoys the art of D.I.Y. jewelry making and sculpture projects. She will happily nerd out with you about the many different processes and techniques she’s knowledgable and passionate about. When she’s not in the shop she’s out exploring or in creating!
Hello, there, my name is Ash! I am just one of the many lovely faces you’ll find at the counter of our amazing studio. I am very passionate about this industry and my role within the shop. I love being there for anyone that needs a hand to hold while getting a piercing, or just to simply answer a question about the many gorgeous pieces of jewelry for which to adorn yourself with. Helping you find jewelry as unique as you is my goal, and we can crush society’s beauty standards one, or two, or five piercings at a time! When I’m not working, you can usually find me in my LOTR Witch King gauntlets, watching wrestling, talking about sci-fi/fantasy, or playing either Skyrim or Mario Kart (among other games).
Hey there, my name is Chey. I am a member of our counter intelligence team. I have three great loves: Star Trek, reading, and everything sparkly! You can find me behind the jewelry counter (you won’t miss me, I’m “the one with the hair”) waiting to help you find the piece of jewelry you’ve been dreaming of. Most say I have a smile that is contagious and a personality that is comforting. Life is too short for boring jewelry, let’s get wild!
Hi there, I’m Cristal and I’m one of the counter babes at Adorn! My love for this industry started at a young age when I would go to tattoo conventions with my dad, and evolving into all forms of body modification. Growing up I knew this industry is one I wanted to be a part of, and in being in the Adorn family I’ve truly found my home. My favorite parts of my job are helping clients find that piece of jewelry, or tattoo, that is special to them and help manifest what they have in their mind onto their body! I’m lucky to be able to help others feel more confident in their skin and I love what I do. I could talk gold and tattoos all day long so don’t be afraid to ask any questions you may have! You can listen to my bad jokes, witness my awful dance moves, and hear my loud cackle of a laugh at either Adorn studio!
Alex, lovingly known at the shop as Tex, is a recent Austin, TX transplant to the PNW and another friendly face you can expect to see behind the Adorn counter. They began working in the industry at the start of 2017, propelled by their love of body modification and passion for facilitating others’ self determination and unique self expressions. They’re a die hard rose gold lover that enjoys pairing different stones with different metals and curating jewelry to suit the individual. When they’re out of the shop you can find them with their nose buried in a book, geeking over cult scifi and foreign horror films, or dressed up and out on the town to hear music. It’s never too late for something new and special to make you feel beautiful. Alex is here to help you find happiness feeling at home in your own skin.
What’s up Oregon! My name is Ben and I’m new to the Pacific Northwest from the Bay Area. I started my journey in the piercing industry in 2013 and I’ve loved every moment of it. Body modification has been a passion of mine since a young age. Nothing makes me happier than finding that perfect piece of jewelry for that perfect piercing. Come on in and let’s step up your jewelry game! When I’m not in the studio drooling over all the gold, you can find me watching one of my favorite shows like Law and Order, Friends or Ridiculousness. I’m super excited to be apart of the Adorn family and can’t wait to see the beautiful faces of Portland drip in gold.
Hey there! I’m Ann, and I’m the newbie of our amazing counter staff. I’ve been fascinated by body mods my whole life, wearing fake lip rings and doodling designs on my arms before I could get poked for real. Being a part of the industry just feels right to me, and nothing brings me more joy than pairing a client with the perfect jewelry for their piercing or the best artist to make their tattoo a reality. When you’re happy, I’m happy! If I’m not at the shop, I’m most likely wandering the great outdoors with my three-legged dog, Luna, writing lots of poems and short stories I won’t let anyone read, or traveling to wherever my wallet can take me. Come say hello anytime – I’d be happy to help adorn you!
