I've been piercing the great people of Fargo-Moorhead since the Spring of 1999.  

Throughout my career, I have gained experience, insight and knowledge of not only body piercing, 

but all things related to body art as well! 


From 2004-2014, I was the only licensed Body Branding/Scarification artist in North Dakota.

I have put scarification/branding on the back burner (pun very much intended!)

for some years but you never know... it just might make a comeback!


In 2007, I became North Dakota's first APP (Association of Professional Piercers) member.  

In 2013, I was honored to contribute to

the revised version of the APP Procedure Manual.

In order to keep up with the ever-evolving body piercing and body jewelry industry, I have attended many

A.P.P. educational conferences over the years. 

A great way to expand my knowledge, experiences, and perspectives in the field of body art; the A.P.P. conference allows me to

speak with piercers from around the world about their techniques and experiences.  


What information is discussed at the A.P.P. conference, you ask?

​Here are just a handful of the classes I have taken over the years...

Wound Healing Dynamics, Anatomy of the Face and Neck, Female/Male Genital Piercings, Medical Considerations, 

Quality Body Jewelry, Proper Techniques, Aftercare, Appropriate Jewelry/Materials,

Piercing Placement, Aseptic Technique, and Trouble-Shooting:


I am a licensed Body Art Operator in Fargo, ND (Cass County).

I am certified in CPR, First-Aid, and Bloodborne Pathogens


I will gladly address any body piercing concerns, inquiries, or questions you may have!

My name is Alex Piper & I'm a Fargo native.

I'm a special effects make-up artist and

I love painting & sculpting.

I'm also a big horror movie buff:

my favorite movie is

Killer Klowns From Outer Space!

(because it rules.)


I have been in the body art industry since 2017. 

In the Fall of 2018, I began my piercing apprenticeship at Dead RockStar with Chuck as my mentor.

Though I have completed the majority of my apprenticeship, there are some more piercings that I need to do in order to complete my apprenticeship.


Which ones piercings, you ask? 

Check them out here and schedule a time with me! And check out my portfolio below!


I am happiest when I'm piercing so call the shop or stop in and we can talk piercings!
