Piercer | Billy
“I am delighted to be back in the Pacific North West with my Adorn family! A connection to my clients and their overall experience is of the utmost importance to me. Even the simplest adornment can be a sacred and cathartic rite of passage that, together as humans, we have done for thousands of years. I promise to treat you and your experience with the same amount of trust, respect and dignity that body piercing rituals have embodied for generations. I am excited to make you all super sparkly!”
Employing an eye for aesthetics, pleasant bedside manner, and knowledge of precious metal and gemstone pairings, Billy strives to connect with clients, fitting unique jewelry combinations tailored to their individual personality, anatomy and aesthetic. To create something beautiful and functional that is uniquely their own while honoring the art, energy and tradition of the craft.
