Frankie Pistone, Piercer

EV_FrankieAs far back as I can remember body modification has always intrigued me in all aspects from the physical to the spiritual. My curiosity stemmed from when I had my first ear piercing at the age of 6, I knew it would not be my last. In the years to come I realized that piercing gave me a new positive and constructive direction to take with my life and that by adorning myself through this practice I felt better about myself as a whole. Upon performing my first piercing I discovered that I could share that gift with others and wanted nothing more than to do so.

I grew up in northeast Ohio for most of my life and have pierced professionally there since 2007. In 2013 I attended my first APP conference as an AL D. Scholarship recipient. My performance granted the opportunity to return in 2014 as a super volunteer (in training) where I was informed of the position at Evolution. I am both honored and humbled to be a part of the Evolution crew and I am thrilled to work in such a beautiful studio with all of this stunning high quality jewelry and such awesome people. I look forward to growing as an industry professional and getting familiar with all the new faces in Albuquerque!
