Body piercing was always an outlet for me. It made me feel confident, powerful, and was something I could control. Sometimes it represented an important time in my life. I started Luar in hopes of giving this feeling to other people. The freedom. I also wanted to elevate our industry. To raise the bar. Bigger, better, more. To create a safe haven for everyone to be loved, cherished, and celebrated for who they are. My favourite piece of jewelry is our Aphrodite cuff. I’ve been wearing one in my Septum now for almost 2 years. They’re so classy, but also a statement piece! I’m all about the bike jewelry. My favourite piecing is the Medusa (Philtrum).
I LOVE them.

Body piercing was a way for me to break the mold. It all started in 2000 with a few of my friends, we were all fascinated by it. Body piercing also runs deep in ancient native Brazilian culture. Now I get to hand make jewelry and see it worn by so many people. It means something. Sometimes it’s to represent a significant time, a loved one, or just because. I’m honoured to be able to play a role in that. My favourite piece of jewelry is anything with princess cut Diamonds. They’re so beautiful. My favourite piercing is the Tragus piercing! It’s the first piercing I ever got, almost 20 years ago. I still have it!

Body piercing to me is the most unique form of self expression and empowerment. It’s something you have full control of and can constantly be able to change. To me, my piercings and jewelry give me a sense of confidence even when I don’t feel my best. I can have no makeup on, be wearing my pyjamas and still get to admire all the little accessories that are now a part of me. Body piercing gives you the chance to adorn and decorate yourself. To feel however you want to feel - whether that means feeling elegant, beautiful or like a total badass. I was always really interested in the piercing and tattoo industry, I got my first professional piercing when I was 11 or 12 and things have just gotten to grow for me from there! Now not only do I get to just sell you jewelry, but I get to be apart of your entire experience, from picking your piece to seeing the look on your face and the confidence in your walk once you leave the piercing room.
I’m a huge sucker for our Martello Flats (hammer tops). The day I’m not wearing at least one of them is going to be a really strange day for me. I love SEPTUM piercings! It’s the centre piece for that adorable face of yours. I feel like my septum completes my piercings and can change the vibe of your look so fast!

Body Piercing to me is a way of expressing the artistic value you hold inside yourself. As a human it is important to be able to align our true inner selves with how we display ourselves. Through body piercing we are able to display the creative aspects of ourselves. Everyone has a different personal style, and way of expressing this creativity. I love seeing the different ways in which an individual will display a piece, whether it’s placement, or the style and vibe they themselves bring to it. I have always had a creative element to myself and have always known I wanted to be in an industry where creativity would flourish. It’s impossible to choose a favourite. I really love the look of black and gold, it’s an edgy, yet refined style. If I had to pick a favourite of the pieces I wear, it would be the evil eye I have in my conch, it reminds of that insight into your soul. My favourite piercing is the septum, they look incredible on everyone. You can dress them up, or dress them down. They are incredibly versatile and I have never met anyone that hasn’t worn one beautifully.

Body Piercing to me is a form of self expression. I started getting pierced at the age of 12. Since then I have had an interest in learning the art. I am still learning new things every day! I became a piercing apprentice at the age of 23. I have been piercing for 7 years.
I love the 'Geada' gold threadless top. I love Gold, it’s a piece that can be worn in a lot of different piercings. Helix, conch, Medusa, lobes! The septum is my favourite piercing. I love the way it looks on everyone!
