Finders Keepers Body Piercing and ear-piercing service near me, began in 1997 as a small piercing studio in Virginia Beach. Body Piercing was a new industry in the United States and had not yet come to mainstream America but was just starting to develop into the body art industry we know today.
Kimberly Rowan, the Founder, Owner, & Master Piercer of Finders Keepers Body Piercing is a pioneer in the body piercing industry. When Kimberly first opened her first body piercing studio she was blazing a path as a piercer in an industry that had not yet been established. There was very little known at this time about body piercing in the mainstream culture. It was simply taboo.
Being a woman blazing this trail brought new challenges in a very male dominated body art world. There was no one to mentor from except the occasional exchange of information from vendors passing along what they had learned from others calling in jewelry orders around the county. Kimberly is self-taught from the beginning of her new career. Thus, Kimberly began developing piercing techniques over the years by servicing thousands of people. These techniques have been taught to many young apprentices through her studios and in studios all over the world that she has worked with to help train their piercers.
As new piercing tools became available and new piercings were invented, she created new techniques, made improvements, and tracked the results as clients came back with their piercings. Kimberly has trained with the APP (Association of Professional Piercers) several times over the years. Kimberly developed her own line of body jewelry and is the lead designer of International Body Jewelry. As Master Piercer, she is licensed through the State of Virginia to train Apprentices in body piercing.
Jessica Starling began her piercing career in 2000 with a full apprenticeship at Finder’s Keepers Body Piercing, where she continued to work for 16 years. There she learned the importance of “continuing education,” which inspired her to participate at the Annual Association of Professional Piercers (APP) convention/seminars. She left Finder’s Keepers Body Piercing, for a few years to continue other career interests in the Body Art Industry. She became a Member of the Association of Professional Piercers in 2016- until 2018. She formed a large network of resources, allowing her to stay up to date on jewelry designs and styles, piercing aftercare, and different piercing techniques.
Her many continual education courses taken include but are not limited to: trouble shooting problematic piercings, homeopathic aftercare, aseptic technique and infection control, and various anatomy/piercing placement courses. Jessica is VA State Licensed certified body Piercer, knowledgeable on the Virginia piercing laws.
Furthermore, she is a Tattoo Artist and Permanent Cosmetic Tattoo Artist and is Certified in Adult CPR, First Aid and Blood borne Pathogens. Her professional passions are creating unique ear curations specialized to her client’s anatomy, customizing jewelry selections that pair with her client’s style, and specializing in private piercings. She strives to provide her clients with customer service excellence, fast/gentle piercings, and advanced innovative knowledge regarding their body piercings.
In the 23 years she has been piercing, Jessica has lived and worked as a Professional Piercer in Austin, Texas and here in Hampton Roads. Jessica has worked with many reputable piecers and studios throughout her career, helping her to stay current in the rapidly evolving field of body modification.
