MEET OUR EXPERIENCED, LICENSED BODY PIERCERS!
Jacque Gibson - Owner
Kristin - General Manager/Owner
Hi – my name is Kristin and I have been a loyal employee at Silver Safari since June of 2000. I am currently the general manager, partial owner, and body piercer. Silver Safari is an amazing place to work and I have been so fortunate to have been employed by such a great company over the years.
I started out in sales as a sales associate and worked diligently, which led to a promotion in 2004 to Assistant Manager and eventually on to the Store Manager in 2005. In 2009, I began body piercing, not only to expand my abilities, but also to learn something new and fun. More recently, in the fall of 2020, I stepped into the roll of General Manager and became a partial owner. Now I am charged with overseeing many aspects of the stores operations. I love my job; I enjoy being so involved in what merchandise the store carries, as well as the overall day-to-day operations. Travelling to Las Vegas and Tucson every year to handpick the majority of our stock is one of my favorite parts of the job! .
I grew up locally, but was born in Seattle, Washington, moving to Spokane at a young age. I graduated from East Valley High School where I was very involved in many activities and sports. I have been an avid soccer player for over 20 years. I spend the greater part of my free time at the lake and have a passion for outdoor activities, specifically camping and riding ATVs . I am thankful to be surrounded by wonderful family and friends, and my terrific husband Rick and our amazing son Cameron!
Stephanie - Store Manager
Hey! I’m Stephanie, I have been working at Silver Safari since the spring of 2011. I love body art including piercings and tattoos, which is what lead me to this career. I started as a Sales Associate and then started my body piercing training in August 2013. From there, I became the Assistant Manager in September 2014 and more recently, in September of 2020, I was promoted to Store Manager. I absolutely love what I do!
I was born & raised here in Spokane and graduated from West Valley High School. I have the most incredible husband and two beautiful children. We like to spend our spare time outside – camping, boating, golfing or hitting the trails in our side-by-side.
Anna - Piercing Manager
Hey! I’m Anna. I began working at Silver Safari as a sales associate in February of 2015, and so far, I couldn’t be happier with the team I’ve joined. I am now a licensed body piercer and have been piercing since July 2015. In September 2020, I was promoted to Piercing Manager! I’ve always loved expressing myself through my appearance, so this is definitely the position for me! I’m so excited to start building relationships with our customers and providing the best service possible. I was born and raised in the Spokane/ Coeur d’Alene area. My main passion in life is photography, hoping one day to make it a career! I also love hiking, cooking, going on long drives, and cats!
Hi! I’m Alix and I’ve been part of the Silver Safari team since August 2021. I grew up in a couple different small towns but moved to Spokane in 2019.
In my free time you can find me watching cheesy scary movies, listening to music and playing with makeup. I’m all about the freedom of self expression. I’ve had every color of the rainbow in my hair at one point or another and love searching thrift stores for new funky clothes. Big eyeliner and fun hair accessories are a staple to every outfit of mine.
I’m so excited to be working here with people who share my passion of helping others look and feel more confident. Come in and tell me all about your favorite band while I help you pick out the perfect jewelry or piercing for you!
Hey there, I’m Miah! I was born and raised here in Spokane. I joined the team at Silver Safari in November 2021 and began my piercing career here in April of 2023!
In my free time you can find me with my beautiful family which consists of my wonderful sons Elijah and Isaiah, and my dog Boomerang. I’m obsessed with Harry Potter, sea animals, plants, and snuggling my babies.
I’m very excited about the opportunity to be here and to work with such an incredible team! It makes me so happy when I get to see someone’s joy when trying out jewelry, getting a new piercing, or even finding a beautiful crystal to take home. My day is always filled with so making so many amazing connections with both customers and coworkers alike, and I love it! Come see me and tell me what sparks your joy!
Yo, I’m Shelby! I’m beyond stoked to be a body piercer at Silver Safari. I’m passionate about my own body modification journey so it’s really awesome to have the opportunity to help other people with their own positive changes!
Outside of work I’m all about keeping it real! I like my alone time and spending time with my close friends and family. I love nature, animals, swimming, Halloween, reading, pressing flowers, getting spooked, faeries, drawing and anything that sparks my imagination.
Come on in so I can pierce you and we can exchange paranormal experiences some time!
Hi there. I’m Mars, and I’ve been a member of the Silver Safari crew since December of 2021 and started body piercing in March 2023. Getting to be part of such a great team has been an amazing opportunity. I’m a firm believer in freedom of self expression, especially through the medium of piercings.
If I’m not at work, you can usually find me at a record store or DIY’ing clothes at home. Stop by the store and we can talk about 80s hard rock while picking out the perfect new jewelry for you!
