Starfire Body Piercing Studio & Body Jewelry Company

From Jamie Rundle, owner of Starfire Body Piercing Studio…

I bet you wouldn’t believe me if I told you that I was going to school to be a High School Teacher. Yep, true story.

I’ve always been somebody who was drawn to flashy, unique, blingy everything. So it’s no surprise that I’ve had a funky shoe collection since middle school. I was always circling items & ordering out of the Delia’s Catalog. And I was a regular customer of the local Tattoo & Piercing Studio.

One day I was wearing my ‘Business Casual’ attire, sitting in my own office, learning about the politics of the business I was a model employee of… and realized something had to change. By happenstance, I was being a good friend & helping set up Quickbooks for the above mentioned studio and am being asked to be a Body Piercer to help them out until their new Piercer moves there. When one door closes another one opens huh?

Flash forward 17 years, which is strange since I’m still only 29 <insert winky face emoji> & I’m still poking holes in people! I loved piercings, but I can honestly tell you I NEVER thought I’d be the one administering them.

What I’ve learned in doing this for so long, is that Starfire is so much more than ‘just a piercing studio’. Sure, we pride ourselves on precision piercings and carrying only the best quality jewelry. But we’re also a place to come vent when you’ve had a bad day. We’re a place to come celebrate when you’ve had a good one – and everything in between.

I am most proud that the average person probably wouldn’t think of being a Body Piercer as a successful career. Be honest, you’d rather your kiddo say they aspire to be a teacher right!?! But I’ve been able to make this a successful career for not only myself, but my support staff and Starfire has a good reputation in the community.
