Meet The Artist
Nicholle always had a passion for art and self expression, but it wasn't until she was 16 when she got her nose pierced that her passion ignited towards the art of Body Modification . Once Nicholle turned 18, she got her body piercing apprenticeship at a local shop near her home town in KC. She worked 3 jobs in order to support her dream of being a Body Modification Artist. After turning 22, she decided to relocate to a different tattoo shop to continue to grow as an artist, as her last shop did not want to grow in the "always growing" industry. She sought out and began shadowing a few veteran artists in the industry as well that helped her build her knowledge on body piercing, APP jewelry standards and anatomy to where it is today.
Two years later, she decided to take a break from the industry in order to find the perfect studio that supported her high standards, since most of the shops in her area were old school and did not respect the growing business and standards of body piercing. However, in April of 2017, Nicholle met Russell James. He was opening up the first luxury tattoo/piercing studio in Kansas City called Black Card Tattoo Collective. Russell wanted only the best for his business and brought her on to the team, where she remains today as the sole piercer in the Zona Rosa location in Kansas City, MO.
Using only the highest quality, safest body jewelry for her clients, she strives to give every client the best possible experience from the moment you walk into the studio. She is also the only studio in the greater Kansas City area that carries Body Vision Los Angeles.
Nicholle loves to do any piercing brought her way (above the belt) but she specializes in custom ear curation/ear projects. If you are unsure what piercing fits your anatomy best, Nicholle will show you!
Now with over 9 years of experience in this industry, Nicholle created her brand Pixel Piercing to showcase her love for both Body Piercings, as well as her other love and passion; video games.
