Ascension Body Modification was opened Jan 1st, 2010 by Steve Truitt. Vern K and Kyle "Kow" Bingham are our 2 piercers. Our piercers are also proud members of the Association of Professional Piercers and each have at least 10 years of experience. Our tattoo artists, Big Ed Tafoya, Cooper and Sam Castro have over 60 years combined experience and are very knowledgable in their art. Come check out their portfolios!
We offer the best body jewelry in the world and have one of the largest selections in the state. We carry jewelry from: Anatometal, Neometal, Intrinsic, Industrial Strength, BVLA, Tawapa, Maya, Evolve, Safe Products, Glasswear Studios, Little Seven, Diablo Organics, Reign, and more! We also carry the Sullen, Civilian Press, and Skygraphx clothing lines and the H2Ocean aftercare line in the studio.
All of our artists have many years of experience and carry current Blood Borne Pathogens, CPR, and First Aid training and are licensed by the State of NM and the City of Albuquerque.
We use the most current sterilization techniques and procedures. We are fully disposable for tattoos, all needles and tubes are new, single use, pre sterilized, and disposed of after use. All jewelry and equipment used in piercing is sterilized immediately before use in the Statim autoclave and taken out of it in front of you. All of our autoclaves are spore tested to make sure they are working properly on weekly basis.
We take every step we can to ensure you are safe and comfortable during your visit to our studio.
We are located at 1916 Central Ave SE Suite A at the South-East corner of Central and Terrace (next to Donut Mart) in the UNM area of Albuquerque, NM.
