MEET YOUR PIERCERS
(Left): Kass is from a small town in NW Georgia. She spent a lot of her childhood hanging out in her uncle's Tattoo shop. When presented with an opportunity to become a body piercer, she found her calling.
After piercing for 2 years and a serious of serendipitous events, she was led to Zen Ink. Kass has a true passion for making people smile and it shows in her career. She is kind, nurturing, and charismatic.
In her free time she enjoys music, exploring nature with her pup, and tasting all the amazing local cuisine Asheville has to offer.
Kass works Wednesday-Saturday.
(Middle): Violit has been piercing since 2011. She opened Zen Ink in 2016. She took a small break from piercing but is back!
She pierces part time, by request,
in-between running the company and tattooing.
(Right): Emily pierced briefly before beginning her tattoo career 13 years ago. Much has evolved since her original body piercing apprenticeship so she’s now knee deep in a refresher apprenticeship with a Violit.
Emily is thrilled to deepen her passion for art & body modification, as well as excited to expand the services she offers her well established clientele in Western North Carolina & beyond. She also welcomes new clients.
Please reach out for new piercings or to schedule a styling appointment to curate existing piercings. At present, Emily has been approved by Violit to offer lobe, nostril & most cartilage piercings while still offering apprentice rates on all other piercings during her learning process.
Emily works Sundays and Tuesdays.
