Meet the Team

Lauren – Manager

Lauren has been around the tattoo & piercing industry her whole life with her mother being a body piercer & the previous manager of Terrapin for many years. She has been piercing full time professionally since 2013. When she’s not in the studio you’ll find her shopping with her pugs.

Kaiya – Body Piercer

Kaiya has been with the team since 2018. She has strived to be a body piercer since she was just 15 years old. She has a selection of creepy crawlies including a gecko, a snail, a frog & 18 snakes! Theres no point us describing her based on her hair colour as it will have changed but the time you come in to the studio.

Thanks to Lauren (the manager) my life changed today. I was born with one inverted nipple and have considered surgery in the past to correct it, until someone suggested getting my nipple pierced. I highly recommend anybody that suffers with this, for 27 years I have suffered with insecurities and felt uncomfortable with my body due to something quite common in a lot of people. Lauren was so lovely and so reassuring, when it was finished I was so emotional, it was like a weight had finally been lifted. Thank you so much girl, you really have changed my life!
