The owner, Mark Montgomery was the first piercer in the state of Missouri to be recognized by the APP (Association of Professional Piercers) and is currently one of only six members in the state of Missouri.


I’m the shop owner and piercer at The Zone Tattoo & Body Piercing. I am a licensed Emergency Medical Technician for the state of Missouri since 1993 and have been piercing professionally since 1997. In November of 2002 I became Missouri’s first Piercer in the Association of Professional Piercer’s. I continue to further my education, knowledge, and experience to bring our customers a comfortable, clean, and safe environment. In addition, we offer a large, unique selection of jewelry, the best aftercare and the highest standards available today.

I am now able to do basic piercings! Since i am still an apprentice you will only have to cover the cost of the jewelry and half the piercing fee. I will be here at The Zone Tattoo and Body Piercings everyday from 2pm - 10pm. except on Wednesdays.
