Piercer | Desta

Desta is the owner of the Adorn studios and has been piercing professionally since 1995. She has been a member of the Association of Professional Piercers (APP) for over a decade and has been regularly attending their annual convention to take classes for years. She has attended, audited and acted as a mentor at Basic and Advanced Fakir Body Piercing Intensives many times -As well as having attended Gauntlet Piercing Seminars. She is a proud member of the Oregon Professional Piercers (OPP).  Much of her responsibilities keep her out of the piercing room but Adorn is always staffed with one (if not two!) of her hand-picked professional piercers…including her first and only apprentice and heir to the throne, Ben Kelvin.  When left to her own devices, she is busy gardening, traveling and spending time with the furry beasts in her life, including her husband.
