I've been piercing since 2007. I first trained under Fakir Musafar in San Fransisco. After returning to the Twin Cities I finished a 9 month apprenticeship and have been piercing professionally ever since. I attend the annual Association of Professional Piercers conference every year to stay current on the latest practices, blood-borne pathogens, CPR and first aid training.

Hello, I’m Erick. I am a native Minnesotan that moved to Olympia, Washington in 2010. Always interested in the piercing and tattooing world, I found a little shop called Metro Body Piercing, where I received my formal seven months apprenticeship under Dawn Prieto. I returned to Minnesota in 2013, and have found my new home, here, at The Ink Lab! Since then I have been extremely happy to pierce the public, and hopefully you next!

Growing up in a tattoo shop, learning how to pierce was a natural progression for me, and 14 years later I find myself still drawn to the art. I pride myself on excellent customer service, and taking the time to make sure my clients not only get a top quality piercing in a safe, sterile environment, but also know exactly how to care for and maintain their piercing.
