Behind Happy’s smile lies the keen eye and steady hand of a professional piercer. Twenty years ago, Happy began his career at Tatu Tattoo in Chicago where his mentor, Painless Jake, taught him everything about piercing but primarily to instill his work with the professionalism and artistic excellent it deserves. Under Jake’s watchful eye, Happy learned that a pleased customer and a beautiful piercing are the best rewards. After working with Jake, Happy moved out to the west coast where he perfected his style of work at “The Gauntlet” training facility in San Francisco. Since his return home to the Windy City, Happy has worked in and around Chicago always providing high quality piercings to those who know excellence when they see it.
Happy has taught Safe Piercing Seminars for The Chicago Recovery Alliance, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and other locations. Like every true artist, Happy stays on the cutting edge of his profession. See below for Happy’s latest certifications.
