I’m Alex. I joined the Adorn family as a counter consultant in 2018. In addition to working counter, I have been fortunate to be given an opportunity to further my journey into this industry as an Apprentice Body Piercer. Working at Adorn I have developed a deep interest in high-quality body jewelry and a keen eye for aesthetic. My passion for body modification began at a young age when I found out how empowering and cathartic it is to truly look and feel like yourself. Since then it has played a huge role in who I am and how I present. Whether you are a new client, returning client or someone with a curiosity about body modification, stop by and let me help you feel more like yourself. preferred pronouns:He/They
