J.R. was born and raised in Northeast Philly. Though he currently lives in Bensalem, he visits Philadelphia often. J.R. and (Infinite piercer) Eduardo have a friendship that goes back to Ed’s first days in Philly, and they currently work alongside one another on Ed’s local suspension team, Kuh-thar-sis. On top of piercing and suspension, J.R. also enjoys doing some heavier work, like scarification and genital beading.
While body modification is a huge part of his life, J.R. is a family man at heart. He recently bought a home in Bensalem and is in the process of remodeling it. When asked about his favorite non-piercing activities, he first tells us that he loves spending time with his wife and four year old son. J.R. also listed a ton of hobbies: “hanging out with friends, trying new foods and drinks, skateboarding, bikes, scooters, unicycles, pogo sticks, fingerboards, flipping on trampolines and all sorts of useless talent nonsense.” Yes, you heard that right; fingerboarding! We’ve seen it in person and you will, too, when you meet him. Though we love that J.R. has a nerdy side, he did have one request: “to sound less like a total dork, include that I like going to concerts and events and such.”
“I really hopes to make this experience a great one; I hope to learn more about my craft and further myself as a professional,” J.R. says. We are excited to have him piercing with us at Infinite.
