Michaela has been performing body modification and piercing here at Midnight Moon Tattoo since 2011. Her training and continued education is quite extensive and ever-growing.

Starting with her knowledge of piercing, she has traveled to San Francisco, California, to work and learn with Fakir Musafar, widely referred to as the the “Godfather of Modern Body Piercing”. Topics studied included The Fundamentals of the Body, Advanced Piercings and Modification, and absolutely everything in between. As an annual participant of the Association of Professional Piercers (APP) Convention held in Las Vegas, she has received numerous certifications within the industry that include: Anatomy of the Body, Safe and Sterile Practices in the Modification Industry, and Advanced Piercing Techniques, just to name a very few.

With Steve Haworth of Phoenix, Arizona (listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as “The Most Advanced Modification Artist” 1999-present), Michaela studied the methods of magnetic implantations and genital beading, both services provided at Midnight Moon. While performing her piercing and modification services, Michaela uses only the highest quality body jewelry available in the industry. Industrial Strength, NeoMetal, and Anatometal are just a few examples. She also carries a large selection of specialty 14k gold, diamond, and organic body jewelry as well. You will not find better quality or selection of body jewelry anywhere.
