Chari Weatherford is a southern Oregon body piercer since 1999.
She managed Custom Body Art in Medford for ten years. She furthered her studies at the Fakir Intensives, first completing basic, and then advanced course. Fakir Musafar is a shaman and piercer known worldwide for his 50+ years of research and personal exploration of body modification. It was then she received the inspiration and opened Ritual Evolution in Ashland in 2008. "For many, there can be deep transformations made through body piercings and I wanted a sacred space to honor our experiences through these ancient traditions. I love to celebrate our coming of age rites, marking of time, reclaiming of bodies, shifting, adorning, recreating, and releasing. Just breathe." Chari is a Reflexology and Usui Reiki II practitioner. Reflexology appointments are also accepted at the studio.
