Come work with us!
Sanctuary Tattoo & Piercing in beautiful Portland, Oregon is looking to hire a full-time piercer. Relocation assistance available.
A little about us:
Our shop was founded by experienced artists and friends and is co-owned by a queer woman. We opened this shop because we wanted to create a welcoming and lovely space for our diverse community, the kind of place where people feel happy and relaxed when they visit. Our team really enjoys working together and we place a high value on compassion, integrity and a sense of humor. Silly puns and dad jokes are a regular occurrence!
We’ve been open a little over a year and have had a fantastic response from the community and have a slew of amazing clients. Our piercing business is mid-volume and we take both appointments and walk-ins.
We all believe in work/life balance and encourage staff to use their vacation time and unplug on the weekends!
We have a wonderful counter person/jewelry specialist on staff as well, along with an owner/manager who helps with FOH and makes everything run smoothly behind the scenes.
Our owner/manager is also an APP member and our shop follows APP guidelines and is 100% disposable. We only carry top-quality jewelry and have accounts with People’s Jewelry, Neometal, Buddha Jewelry Organics, LeRoi Fine Jewelry, Anatometal, Mushroom Body Jewelry and more.
What we offer:
$19-$20 per hour DOE to start, plus commission on services and jewelry sales, and tips of course!
Paid vacation, paid holidays, sick days, medical and dental coverage and 401K. A lovely, spacious, temperature-controlled piercing room. Additionally, we pay for APP membership fees and conference attendance.
It’s also our intent to share the wealth as much as possible, so as the business grows and prospers your financial compensation will too!
Who we’re looking for:
Someone who loves what they do and enjoys working with a diverse array of clients. You will be a solo piercer for a bit, so we need someone with a few years experience (3+) who can self-manage and stay on task with not only piercing appointments but also organizing and ordering things. We’re looking for someone who is both reliable and a good communicator. You don’t have to be an APP member yet but you need to already be familiar with their guidelines.
If you’re interested in applying please fill out the form below and we can set up a guest spot, then you can see how we operate, meet our wonderful team and check out the lovely little neighborhood our shop is in!
We look forward to chatting with you!
