We only pierce with jewellery that meets APP standards for initial jewellery for piercings. We carry quite a large selection of gold jewellery (fun fact - Ouro means gold in Portuguese) and work with some awesome designers: Pupil Hall, Alchemy Adornment, Anatometal, Buddha Jewelry Organics, Tawapa, Modern Mood, Industrial Strength, Canasteel and more.

  • Providing piercing services to our clients including: piercings, consultations, troubleshooting, follow-ups, upsize/downsize services, jewellery changes
  • Educate and share your knowledge about piercing and jewellery to our clients. 
  • Help our clients with planning their piercing, curating jewellery for piercing projects and piercing styling
  • Communicate with clients regarding piercing, jewellery and troubleshooting

Above all, we are seeking kind hearted individuals who are passionate about body piercing and jewellery, and are able to uphold our shared values: compassion, diversity, and kindness. 

Our piercers are compensated with a competitive hourly wage, receive a percentage of the piercing service fees performed, and are tipped generously by our clients. We offer a yearly professional development allowance, paid lunch breaks, and work in a tight-knit, teamwork based environment. As our team grows, we look to offer extended health benefits, and work 4 day work weeks. 

If you wish to apply to this position, please email a cover letter and resume along with a link to your portfolio to fernanda@ouropiercings.com . We are unable to entertain walk-in applications as we are often booked with customers. Potential candidates may be offered an initial guest piercer position.
