This client picked out a beautiful pair of hand carved black mother of pearl earrings.
We also hand made the captive hoops in her lip piercings and even found some hematite beads for them!

Story
Tagline
Providing clean, reliable, and friendly service to all of Staten Island since 2000
Introduction
Thank you for taking the time to visit my google plus profile.   I am Paul and I began my venture in the body piercing industry in June of 1999.  My apprenticeship was under my piercer Ericca Colton.   I apprenticed under Ericca for 1 year before I started to work on my friends under her supervision.  My apprenticeship was cut short when Ericca passed away at the age of 21 in October of 2000.  When my apprenticeship abruptly ended after a little over 1 year, I started working in New York City at “revolving door shops” in order to gain experience.  Comfortable with my skill I returned to Staten Island in November of 2001.   I am a proud member of the Association of Professional Piercers and operate out of Bound for Glory Tattoo located at 644 Forest Ave.

In 2003, in an effort to solidify my ability to continue to work as a piercer, I began crafting organic body jewelry.  In my humble beginnings I operated out of a cramped “studio” located in my parents basement making a small, simple selection of plugs and tunnels.  While looking to further my knowledge in body adornment I began networking with some of the world’s most talented craftsmen and jewelers.  Now I happily carry jewelry from the top companies here in the United States such as Industrial Strength, Anantometal, NeoMetal, LeRoi, BVLA, and Body Gems just to name a few.  We even have an anodizer that allows us to change the color of the jewelry on the spot using SCIENCE!

I complete First Aid and CPR courses bi-annually (see blog post containing certificates here). In addition I have completed Cross Contamination and Bloodborne Pathogen courses yearly (see blog post containing certificate here) and have taken extended learning courses in Human Anatomy and Physiology at the College of Staten Island.  I pride myself in cleanliness, integrity, and great bedside manner.  All of my piercing jewelry is internally threaded and I offer both implant grade stainless as well as titanium for initial piercings. My piercing needles are hand-crafted from stainless steel and are always nickel-free. I introduced Staten Island to the art of body modification over 12 years ago.  My extensive portfolio includes surface anchors (single point piercings), ear scalpelling and various other body modification procedures.

In January of 2015 I applied for a scholarship to attend the 20th annual Association of Professional Piercers conference and was chosen as one of the finalists.  In March the APP selected me as the recipient of the Industrial Strength Shannon Larratt scholarship, which was a huge honor.  The conference had a profound,  personal effect on me.  To see my name with the likes of Shannon’s was incredibly overwhelming and humbling.  While out at the conference I took 14 courses taught by people I admire in the industry.  I learned so much from this incredible opportunity.  What I learned not only benefits me, but my clients as well.

Attending the APP conference sparked my desire to continue my education whenever the opportunity became available. It was with this newly ignited passion that I enrolled in a Progressive Mentorship seminar; Versatile Piercing Techniques. The class was taught by Ryan Ouellette of Precision Body Arts and was very informative and enlightening. It was interesting to see another professional’s approach and challenged me to try new techniques.

In November of 2015 I elevated my efforts in continuing my education by enrolling in the first ever Comprehensive Piercing Seminar at Fakir Intensives. Fakir Musafar is a shaman, artist, master piercer, and body modifier with 50 years research and personal exploration in primitive body arts. I spent nearly a week in San Francisco and had the privilege of learning not only from Fakir, but also Ken Coyote, Ian Bishop, Jef Saunders, Cody Vaughn, Tod Almighty, William Grindatti, and Jori Zan. The seminar covered topics such as Advanced Piercing Techniques, health & safety, proper jewelry materials, history of the body piercing movement, and incorporating energy sensitivity and shamanism into everyday body piercing. My experience at the Fakir Intensives had a overwhelming influence on my professional career but more importantly grounded me spiritually. I am so privileged to have been a part of this gratifying experience. It is something that will stay with me forever.

In March of 2016 I became the first member of the Association of Professional Piercers in New York City.  This was an accomplishment I’ve had my eye on since 2004.  After 10 years the right circumstances finally aligned.  I found myself in a studio that supported my drive to become a member.  It took me 2 years to meet and exceed the requirements for membership.  This accomplishment was not without the help of a bunch of people.  Thanks goes out to all of them.  My gratitude is owed to all those who were involved.  I am very excited to be the first member of the APP in New York City and I hope that many others will follow.

For 16 years I have made every effort to stay ahead of the curve; evolving with the industry.  I am not a tattoo artist. I don’t have a second job. I truly love what I do and it shows in my work.
