A little about Kivaka

Passion (n)- any powerful or compelling emotion or feeling, and that’s just what Professional Body Piercer Kivaka has for his career. Most little boys want to b e police officers or firemen when they grow up, but that wasn’t the case for Kivaka. Kivaka got his first tattoo at the age of ten, preformed with a needle, thread and ink, and that’s when it all started. He grew up around tattoo studio's and when he turned 15 he was taken in and taught how to pierce. Kivaka preferred piercing over tattooing so he decided to just work as a piercer and he’s been doing it ever since. Over the years in his career Kivaka has accomplished many of things including helping write the state piercing exam for the state of wisconcin and helping inform the health inspectors on what the proper things are to look for when inspecting a Tattoo or Body Piercing studio. Kivaka has taken many courses and attended many seminars to better educate himself in his profession and has also became CPR/BBP certified as well, to insure the safety of all his clients. Kivaka is one of the most well known and respected artists out there, not only for his professionalism, but for his quality of work. You can look at a photo of a piercing and you’d know if Kivaka pierced it, not because of his unique style of photography, but mainly for the nice clean piercing. Kivaka sends his clients home with a smile and a flawless piercing every time and has reveived many compliments and awards for his work. In his spare time Kivaka enjoys fishing and spending time with his Son. He also owns and maintains his website,, where you can go and check out some of his work. I think that if everyone had as much charisma and devotion about their careers as Kivaka does, than the world may be a better place.

Kivaka also loves to train in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu under Carlson Gracie Jr and loves to train into Mauy Thai now and then.

Kivaka was first recommended to me a few years ago and at the time I wasn't 18 yet so both of my parents came to his shop with me. He assured my parents everything was clean and done professionally by answering questions, showing my mom the the sterilizer, and the tools being taken out of new un-opened packages. Kivaka was very respectful, wasn't just one of those "hurry up. give me your money, here's a piercing" type guys. My parents were thrilled about that aspect, and trust me it took them a whole year to even consider allowing me to get one, so that was huge! After my first piercing I went back for 4 others and along the way every time one of my friends wanted a piercing I said don't go anywhere else, i'm taking you to Kivaka. I've brought about 6 people to him and all of which have been happy with their piercings. You pay for quality, and a great piercing experience, and if you listen to how Kivaka tells you to clean your piercing and take care of it well, then you will be just as happy as I was :) Kivaka is a great conversationist, very chill, and will make you feel comfortable if you are nervous!

*Jamie F.Sugar Grove, IL-5 star

Kivaka is the best. Reasonably priced, quick, little pain and a nice and funny guy. Ill never go anywhere else to get a piercing. Also, waiting for a tattoo you're good company! My belly button looks awesome and I still love my tragus from 6 years ago. Thanks Kivaka!

*Shireen Sheikh Hussain — 5 star

Kivaka is awesome, professional, sanitary, and an absolute riot. My daughter and I had our noses pierced by Kivaka; he's great at easing fears and making the whole process great. Super quick too! It was over before I realized it. Thanks so much!

*Kayla Marie — 5 star

So glad I went to him. Did a great job. Wouldn't go anywhere else !!!

*Jessica Sprout O'Connell — 5 star

As always a wonderful piercing experience. There is no other piercer I would entrust with my modifications.

*Michelle F.5 star Twin Lakes, WI-

Got my first piercing over 10 years ago from Kivaka when he was at a shop in Lake Geneva, he is by far the best !! I have 13 piercings and the majority were done by him. Only reason they all weren't is because I could not drive over two hours to the new shop he works at.

*Anicka Klim — 5 starLove love love him!!!

*Carly Chavez — 5 starDefinitely made my first piercing on my face the best experience ever. He's very very professional, he's funny, & really knows his stuff. I would definitely recommend him to everyone. He's an amazing piercer & I'm for sure going back to him for more piercings eventually.

*Meghan Lee — 5 star


*Linda Palm Fitzgerald — 5 star

*Alexa Johnson-Roach — 5 star

My belly button piercing looks great and not only that, but I was totally comfortable and well informed. Highly recommend this guy!

*Kristen E.Oak Lawn, IL5 star

I received my first ever piercing (nostril) a few days ago and could not be happier with my experience in Kivaka's studio! Naturally, I was a bit nervous... Kivaka's knowledge on what to expect and how to treat a healing nose piercing (as well as his easy-going, down-to-earth demeanor) put me at ease immediately. The process was as quick, smooth, and as painless as possible! Kivaka also only uses quality, titanium jewelry; none of that cheap crap... Three days later, I have minimal swelling or tenderness, which can only be attributed to a clean, precise piercing done by a passionate professional. It looks fantastic! I am more than satisified with my overall experience with Kivaka and would urge you to contact him! You can expect nothing short of proficiency, professionalism, and quality.

*Heather Mueting — 5 star

Kivaka is an awesome professional he did my nose, belly and my tongue. Super quick and before you know it you are done. He makes you have as little pain as possible. Thanks again :)


excellent piercer. very nice, helpful and clean. i got my tounge pierced several years ago but i still remember how great he was!

*Cara Fedo — 5 star

Very professional and understanding when it comes to any piercing. Clean, safe, and you instantly trust him by just talking to him about what you're interested in getting. Also a good sense of humor that makes you feel less nervous. I wouldn't trust anyone but Kivaka !

*Michelle Macabre Fahlstrom — 5 star


*Dana G.5 star.

I've known Kivaka for almost a decade now. I will not let anyone else pierce me. I don't even risk changing my jewelry myself. 
Before I knew Kivaka, I got my lip pierced by another piercer.... let's just say bad idea. I lived with a crooked piercing that never really healed for 6 years. I finally took it out and got a new one(on the side this time) courtesy of Kivaka! So much better! All healed up, perfectly placed, and the pain was considerably milder. He has got a wealth of knowledge in his field and all things related. He has been piercing for over half his life. He has passion for what he does, takes it very seriously, and also loves and respects everyone he pierces. He has a ton of high quality jewelry and if you want something he doesn't have, he will order it for you. Anytime the subject of piercing comes up, the name Kivaka inevitably follows. He is so well known in the industry because his work speaks for itself. Like art. Clean to the highest degree and not a cut corner.
No need to speak about price or location because that's not important. Trust me. Drive anywhere, pay anything for quality. It's your body... you only get one. Put it in the hands of a true professional.

*Eileen Greifenkamp — 5 star

I will not let anyone else pierce me. He gets it right every time and it's a really chill guy. I always have a great time with him and my friends!

*S A. 5 star

Seriously helpful and very kind. needed help replacing an earring for a new piercing, and Kivaka stepped right up and helped out. Great service and definitely recommend him for piercings =)

*Melanie Ludvigsen — 5 star

Just got my tragus repierced (for the 3rd time). Hurt less with Kivaka than it did with anyone else. Thanks! I love it!

*Clayton Nessling — 5 star

Best of the best right here

*Michelle Bostic — 5 star

Great guy. Great work. Need I say more? If you're thinking about getting pierced, he's the one to see!

*Hayley Dockum — 5 star

I ♥ Kivaka! I traveled from Bloomingdale to come to him for my tongue piercing. He's super nice and made me feel really comfortable. Highly recommended!

*Sarah Elizabeth Hogan — 5 star

Only guy I trust to stick a needle through me. Clean, professional.... And funny!! :D

*Jen Cox — 5 star

*Sambalina Alice — 5 star

Hands down, one of the best piercers I know. Knowledgeable, professional and a great bedside manner.

*Nikki Weinhart-Campbell — 5 star

*Vincent-5 star

*Kimberly Doerr Susko — 5 star

Thank you Kivaka! I got my nose pierced Christmas Eve and my experience was awesome! Quick, painless and I must say quite happy with the price! Thanks again and Merry Christmas!

*Katy Richard — 5 starOut of the people I've had pierce me - he was DEFINITELY the best. I felt so comfortable there. I went in on my 18th birthday and he did my conch in my right ear, then immediately after did the industrial piercing on my left ear. I cried like a big baby, but still felt like I was in good hands. Laughed and joked with me through it to get my mind off the pain. I would never get pierced anywhere else!

*C M.Montgomery, Il5 star

Absolutely LOVE his work. I got a nose piercing, not my first one, but definitely, my most enjoyable one. He's so down to earth, knows his business, and explains everything. In minutes I was comfortable with him. Not to mention, a great sense of humor. I would only go back to Kivaka!

*Amanda T. Aurora, IL

I just had my eyebrow pierced by Kivaka and I have to say that in all of my years of getting pierced he is the best piercer I have been to. He is very personable and funny and makes you feel completely at home and comfortable while sitting in his piercing chair, not to mention the AMAZING work that he does. This is by far my favorite piercing and I am so appreciative! Thanks Kivaka! I'll most definitely be back, and I'll bring my little brother back when he is ready for his first piercing :)


*Amanda Rangel — 5 star

Kivaka is the BEST! I will not go anyhere else!

*Lauren  — 5 star

Professional, clean needles, nice guy too!

*Noshaba Bhatti — 5 star

I got my nose re-pierced after having taken it out nearly a decade ago, and Kivaka did an amazing job. He was patient with all my questions, confident and calm, talked me through everything, and he was really fun to interact with. The actual needle poke was so quick.. 'though not painless ;). My niece got hers just two weeks prior and my sister-in-law got pierced with me. We are in love with our piercings! We even swung through a few days later to have him check out how we were healing, and he again took his time to answer our questions.
Thank you so much, Kivaka! I might have to take the long trek up to see you from my abode in the city of Chicago to re-pierce ear piercings that have closed. You are amazing. And thanks for actively opposing animal cruelty & dog fighting. :)

*Alex Hoover — 5 star

Made my nipple piercings go way smoother than I ever could've imagined. Great piercer and an awesome guy to talk to!

*Courtney Wall — 5 star

I recommend him to everyone. Everyone in my family, including myself has been pierced by him. He makes it sound painless and explains everything so well. He's so comfortable around everyone and fun!

*Elizabeth Thompson — 5 star.

I just got my eyebrow pierced by Kivaka and it looks awesome! The process was completely painless, easy, and fast. He was so nice and easy to talk to. I had a great experience and I will most definitely be back for more. Thank you Kivaka!

*S A. Edison, NJ 5 star

Seriously helpful and very kind. needed help replacing an earring for a new piercing, and Kivaka stepped right up and helped out. Great service and definitely recommend him for piercings =)

*Therese M.Aurora, IL5 star

I have gone to Kivaka for 5 piercings and would never consider going elsewhere! He only uses top quality products and provides a clean and friendly atmosphere. Best piercer EVER!!!!

*Jocelyn W. Geneva, IL

Kivaka is awesome! I have gotten my belly button and two ear piercings done by him so far and will def get the rest of my piercings by him! He is very nice and it is obvious he knows exactly what he is doing. So far, I have not had to wait any longer than 5 minutes to get a piercing done. He is also reasonably priced. The thing I like the most about him is that he obviously knows what he is doing and has further knowledge about the body rather than just how to use a needle.

*Anita C. Naperville, IL

I've wanted my nose pierced since I was a little girl. Today I decided to do it. I walked in, made no appointment and waited only 10 minutes. KIVAKA IS AMAZING. His sense of humor put me at ease, even though I love needles and have a high pain tolerance. He takes out and opens all equipment right in front of you. He explains everything to you and is very patient when you have questions. AND when you're all watch him throw all the equipment in the trash. I've had other piercings and this by far was the best experience EVER! If I need another I will definitely go back. Thank you so so so much Kivaka! I am now a loyal fan. Oh...and if paying by credit/debit....make sure you tell him before he swipes if you want to add tip to the card. ;)

*Wendy S.Oswego, IL 5 star

I got my bellybutton pierced here about 7 years ago along with my eyebrow and lip, he is very friendly and will make you feel comfortable. Also the place is very clean and will definitely will be going back for more piercings :) Highly recommended!

*Bri Vega — 5 star

Perfect! Went to Kivaka to get my nose pierced for the second time and he was great! Friendly and knowledgable, this is your guy with a great assortment of jewelry too :) I was so happy and excited over my piercing I forgot when I can come in to switch from a stud to a ring though :/ so Kivaka, when can I come back in? Thanks again :D

*Missmonster m. Chicago, IL

I got my first piercing there today. He was friendly and the septum piercing went smoothly! Everything was clean and i felt like i could trust what he was doing. He made me feel comfortable and had a good personality. Very happy customer. I marked the range as moderate since i dont want to give the impression this is a "cheap" place ( like too cheap where you wonder about quality) but I felt the price was very fair!
