Body Piercing Studio
The Body Piercing Studio at Carribbean Connection was established in 1995. We were the first piercing shop in Jacksonville Beach and more than twenty-five years later, we remain the most respected and trusted shop in the area. From the very beginning, we set very high standards and have continued to live up to our sterling reputation through each and every interaction with our customers.
We strive to provide the cleanest, safest, most sterile, and friendly environment for our customers. Our piercers have worked closely with the Florida Department of Health to assist in setting standards that are now health regulations mandated by the State of Florida.
We stand by the professionalism of both our piercers as well as our knowledgeable staff as they assist you in choosing from North Florida's largest selection of body jewelry! Whether it's for a fresh piercing, a jewelry purchase, or simply just a consultation, we can assure you your first visit to Carribbean Connection won't be your last.
Lead Piercer: Kelly Buscher
Hey! My name is Kelly and I’m a native here in Jacksonville FL. I graduated from Terry Parker in 2012 and shortly after that I found my passion for body piercing. Over the years, my main goal is to make sure that every piercing is done as safely, quickly and painless as possible; I continue to strive and learn new techniques everyday making this possible.
Nothing makes my heart more happy than the smile on a persons face right after they see their piercing. In my spare time, I love to watch live music. Doesn’t matter what genre is playing, as long as it’s good.
Piercing Apprentice: Lily
I graduated from Paxon SAS in 2016 and began my piercing apprenticeship here at Carribbean Connection in July 2021, but I’ve been an avid body art enthusiast for nearly a decade.
Enamored with both personal expression and the refinement of a craft, I found my niche in piercing and I’m eager to help foster continued growth of the industry by promoting safe practices and staying up to date with current knowledge.
My goal is to make each piercing procedure as swift and painless as possible, and work with clients to curate the body art of their hearts’ desires in an inclusive and compassionate environment.
Piercing Apprentice: Amanda
Hey! My name is Amanda and I am a piercing apprentice here at Carribbean Connection. I have wanted to become a professional piercer for 15 years and feel extremely lucky to have gotten this opportunity.
My goal is to apply my knowledge from my years of being a surgical assistant to creating beautiful works of art through body modification.
In my spare time I truly enjoy just hanging out at home with my family.

Body jewelry is measured by its gauge and length. The gauge refers to the thickness of the body jewelry and the length refers to how long the body jewelry is or its diameter. For plugs, the length refers to its “wearable surface”. Please review the chart below to see the points of measurement for the most common types of body jewelry.
