OokySpooky is a trans inclusive and non-judgemental piercing and body modification studio owned and operated by a gay man. Piercings can be an avenue of self expression and reclamation of the body and should always be performed with the utmost trust and respect which are at the heart of the core values at OokySpooky.
With Vesper’s years of study and practise in the fields of anatomy, physiology, embalming, biology and restorative art from his University degrees in Microbiology from the University of Central Florida (Orlando, Florida) and Funeral Services from St. Petersburg College (St. Petersburg, Florida) prior to his career in modification, he brings a medical background and unique perspective to his craft. He also completed a year-long apprenticeship in piercing and body modifications training under Alfie Baker along with years of working in the field that a 4 to 6-day piercing course cannot compare with.
Vesper pierces exclusively using blade needles and disposable insertion tapers from Stiletto Piercing. Unlike cannula needles which are made for intervenous procedures (blood draws and IV insertion) in the medical field, blade needles are designed and produced specifically for the piercing industry and allow for application of bevel theory and higher precision as well as cause less trauma to surrounding tissue as they are engineered for the purpose of puncturing tissue rather than being inserted into a vein for cannula placement.
All of his sterilisation products and equipment are medical grade and is one of the only area studios with both a high capacity vacuum/steam autoclave from Prestige Medical Equipment as well as an Enbio fast cycle autoclave that is used for all jewellery purchases made on the day of piercing to ensure everything he uses is medically sterile.
Vesper only uses internally threaded or threadless (where applicable – ball captive and clicker rings do not have threading, of course!) ASTM-F136 implant grade titanium, niobium, and solid 14ct gold jewellery from brands such as Industrial Strength, NeoMetal, Invictus, Implant Grade Body Jewellery, QualiTi, Apex Handcrafted Body Jewellery, Junipurr, and Ti Couture.
For Vesper, piercing and modification are his passions and he focuses exclusively on body piercing (including genital/intimate and microdermal implants), scarification, transdermal (silicone) implants, RFID implants, and branding. His goal is for every client to express themselves and realise the vision they have for their body.
Vesper endeavours to provide every client with exceptional professionalism, eye to detail, design, and technique at a competitive price given his abundant qualifications. Vesper also holds all necessary registrations, insurances and certifications with the local authority to practice his craft. OokySpooky is proud to exclusively use and offer luxury implant-grade titanium and 14ct gold jewellery from Industrial Strength, Invictus, Junipurr, Tish Lyon, Implant Grade, QualiTi, and Ti Couture which are manufactured in the UK, EU, and the USA.
