BMEtv – Lori St.Leone

Today’s video is one a whole lot of you have been waiting for.  When the BME World Tour stopped in Darwin, there was one person that they just had to visit, the incomparable, the dazzling, the talented, Lori St.Leone!

In case you don’t know who Lori is, her BME Wiki entry goes something like this:

Lori St.Leone is known on IAM as: spikesandstuds, has been a BME QOD staff member since 2003, and owns and operates Vogue Body Piercing in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia.

Lori St.Leone began her piercing career in 1995 in her hometown of Anchorage, Alaska, and has been working at Vogue Body Piercing since 2001. Lori is extensively experienced in all aspects of body piercing (everything from lobes and eyebrows to genital projects), and she also offers services such as punch and taper method surface piercing, large gauge dermal and cartilage punching, lobe scalpelling, genital beading and newer techniques such as microdermals. She is the sole piercer working with the NT Department of Health to improve legislation in regards to body modification in the Northern Territory, and is strongly committed to constantly improving her techniques and the shop’s setup to conform with best practice available as the industry advances. Lori has an excellent reputation in her local community for her ethical and superb quality practice, as well as her friendliness and kindness, and often volunteers her time doing community outreach and education regarding body modification and related health concerns and issues.

Now this video was taken a while back, so some of the things you’ll hear about in the video are out of date.  The most important one is that Lori is on her way to becoming a mom for the second time.

  1. So you really don’t think the other out-of-date things are important enough to mention? This isn’t exactly trivial stuff.

  2. Hey, better late than never! ;)

    Yes, more than a few things have changed since last year – was it really almost a year ago? I closed my shop in December, after a lot of thought and consideration, in order to pursue new directions in my life. And yes, that included the plan to expand our family, and the new little one is due in late November/early December! I have essentially retired from body piercing (after almost sixteen years, sheesh, ten of those years full-time) and am following my heart into studying midwifery. I couldn’t be happier with my decision!

    My former apprentice, Dimmie Verenlaulaja, has opened her own piercing studio (called Persephone Body Piercing) in Vogue’s old location, and is doing very well for herself there. :) So, Darwin still has an excellent option for quality piercing services and advice! :)

  3. I have been lucky enough too have been pierced several times by Lori and have nothing but positive things too say about her. Always very professional and makes you feel comfortable while getting pierced, not too mention a really cool person too. Was a sad day when vogue shut down :(
