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 master practitioner.
Reflexology appointments are also accepted at the studio.
I use only the highest quality jewelry from leading manufacturers in the industry. All materials for your piercing are internally threaded and are
made of the following:
ASTM F-136 certified implant grade titanium (nickel free and bio-compatible)
Niobium (nickel free and bio-compatible)
14-18 karat solid gold (white gold is palladium based and nickel free)
Borosilicate and Quartz glass
You can shop in my studio from a rotating inventory of jewelry. Several local jewelry artist's designs can be found as well as other organic jewelry from varying stones, woods, shell, horn and bone.
Here are some links to some of my favorite companies. I am happy to order for you.
