MEET OUR EXPERIENCED, LICENSED BODY PIERCERS!
Jacque Gibson - Owner
Kristin - Owner
Hi – my name is Kristin and I have been a loyal employee at Silver Safari since June of 2000. I am the store manager and a licensed 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 have worked diligently, which led to a promotion in 2004 to Assistant Manager and eventually on to the Store Manager in 2005. 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 very involved in what merchandise the store carries, as well as the overall day-to-day store operations. Travelling to Las Vegas twice a year to handpick the majority of our stock is one of my favorite parts of the job! In 2009, I began body piercing, not only to expand my abilities, but also to learn something new and fun. Although I was a bit apprehensive about starting this, once I got going it turns out I’m a natural! Though challenging at times, it is overall a very fun and extremely rewarding profession.
I grew up locally, but was born in Seattle, Washington, moving to Spokane at a young age. I graduated from East Valley High School (go Knights!) where I was very involved in many activities and sports. I have been an avid soccer player for 20 years and it is most definitely my sport of choice. During the summer, I spend the greater part of my free time at the lake and have a passion for outdoor activities. When the opportunity presents itself to experience new places, I jump on it as I love to travel! I am thankful to be surrounded by a terrific family, wonderful friends, and my amazing husband Rick and adorable son Cameron who I love very much!
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 & tattoos, which is what lead me to pursuing this job. I started as a Sales Associate & 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 & graduated from West Valley High School. I spend my spare time doing crafts, sewing, scrapbooking – anything artistic! I also love camping, reading, playing ‘Just Dance’ or anything that allows me to spend time with my family, friends & my incredible husband. They are definitely my main priority in life.
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!
Hey, I’m Mak! I started working for Silver Safari in April of 2015 and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of such a cool place. I took a little sebattacle and moved to New York City, but I’m so happy to be back in my second home with my second family. I love being able to help people and give them the best experience in the store as possible. I’m also a huge advocate for self expression through body art and having the confidence to pull off any jewelry you want!
Hello, I’m Sarah! I have been part of the Silver Safari Team since August of 2019. I greatly enjoy being a part of a local business that provides an avenue for self expression.
Every customer that comes through the door has their own story. I pride myself in knowing those stories and helping the customer express that through a whole new look, or a subtle sparkle. I love a good challenge that allows me to use the tools available as a creative outlet.
I’ve always had an interest in the functions of the human body. Advising in the care and healing of a customer’s piercing is one of my favorite parts of this position!
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. My name is Tori and I have worked at Silver Safari since June of 2019. However, I have been a loyal customer of Silver Safari since 2014.
I am a firm believer in expressing individuality through piercings, jewelry, crazy shoes, and fun hair color! I spend my free time cuddling my cat named Homie and hiking with friends rain or shine.
I’d love to help you pick out a new piercing or help you find jewelry that you’ll love for life. Come on in and see me!
