The Full Story


Hi, I'm Karissa and I'm so glad you're here! I'm a Registered Nurse and mama to a 2 year old daughter. I developed my business when I found very few safe options to get my daughter's ears pierced and decided to fix the problem myself! I knew that there had to be a better way to get kid's ears pierced and reflected on the problems most moms encounter. Do I really want to drag my child to the busy mall? Will an inexperienced teenager be doing the piercing? Is the jewelry safe for kids? After some careful planning, The Nurse Piercer was born!



I strive to provide a comfortable and safe piercing experience. I use only the best materials, which are all medical-grade and hypoallergenic, so you don't have to worry about any adverse reactions or nickel allergies! I take my time to make sure your piercing is done right the first time, so you can enjoy it for years to come. I abide by sterile technique and treat your piercing like a medical procedure.


I have been practicing as an RN in Boston since 2016 after obtaining a Bachelors of Science in Nursing  from Salve Regina University. I became certified in Critical Care Nursing in 2021 by the AACN and became certified in medical ear piercing in 2022. I stay up to date with my skills and still work in a Medical Intensive Care Unit.
