Stop. Breathe. Drift.
Jake is the owner and one of our body piercers here at Drift. Jake started piercing professionally in 2009 and has been an active member of the Association of Professional Piercers since March of 2017.
He continues his piercing education by traveling all over the country to different studios to brainstorm with other industry professionals, as well as attending the annual APP conference and teaching seminars.
When Jake isn’t in the studio, you can find him rock climbing or bike packing.
Ray began piercing in 2012 in the same studio as Jake, and since then has been furthering his knowledge on current body piercing procedures and trends. Ray joined the Drift team in October of 2021. Ray is an active member of the Association of Professional Piercers.
Currently Ray’s favorite piercings to perform would be stacked piercings: think a pair with one above the other or to either side!
In his free time you can find Ray hanging out with his daughter or watching anime.
