Introducing Cherry, the owner and founder of Cherrycore.
In 2011 Cherrycore was opened and within 3 short years, a new store location and a bigger dream was born!
This is the Cherrycore we love and share with you today. With luxury service and quality in mind, Cherry dreamed of creating a space that allowed clients to experience body piercing and wearing body jewellery like never before.
Personally, she felt that after starting her career in 2003, the days of body piercing being reserved for the alternative subcultures had passed, and it was time for a new age of inclusivity.
Since starting her career in 2003, Cherry has worked hard to further her education, striving for perfection to deliver the most up to date techniques for flawless results in all her fields of expertise.
Cherry's favourite piercings to perform are conch piercings, earlobes and helix piercings. She loves the timelessness of these piercings and the perfect amount of sass and confidence that they give her clients when they see their new adornments.
Not only is Matthew one of our amazing Senior Body Piercers; he is our Practice Coordinator and very own resident Tattoo Artist.
Matthew started his career in body piercing at Cherrycore in 2012 studying under Cherry as an apprentice, and has since developed a wide skillset, along with a large clientele to follow!
Matthew has always had an eye for fashion and style, but now as a senior piercer and stylist, he has refined his taste in both designing custom pieces and styling sets.
It no secret Matthew especially loves using unique little pieces to accent a lavish show stopper in his styling projects. Creating balance and harmony that allows your eye to flow from one piece to the next with more space given to the highlight of the show.
While Matthew loves offering body piercing services, he is most renowned for his perfectly placed septum, daith piercings and stunning curations. His work has also been featured in septum piercing specialist classes at the 2019 APP Conference.
Matthew not only is an important team member due to his piercing skills, he also plays many highly important roles behind the scenes that clients don’t know about.
He has personally designed our website, our paperless and contactless consent form systems, our new QR Codes and puts his love and care in to all of our online orders and in-store custom orders. He is always striving to provide the smoothest and most enjoyable shopping experience with Cherrycore. His passion and dedication to customer satisfaction is simply second nature to him, making it highly understandable why he is known for his friendly character and professionalism.
As a tattoo artist Matthew specialises in all things cute and colourful. He loves doing anything NeoTraditional, Nature or Nerdy! He began learning tattooing in 2014, and has since developed a unique style that incorporates clean lines and bright colours. Matthew studied a Bachelor of Arts (Visual Arts major) during his training, and finds inspiration for his work from nature, animals, pop-culture and traditional tattooing styles of art.
We are delighted and excited to have Bianca, on our team.
Starting with Cherrycore in April 2022 as a piercing stylist, Bianca has blown us away with her excitement for fine jewellery and body piercing coupled with her dedication to customer services.
Bianca rapidly become known as the go-to for styling large scale ear projects by creating visual mapping for clients to see their dreams in reality.
Her role may have started as a stylist, but there was no stopping Bianca from quickly blossoming in to larger roles including excelling in her body piercing training.
She definitely serves BOSS energy!
Bianca brings a range of impressive qualities to the Cherrycore team.
Not only is she a ball of excitement and positivity, Bianca has also enjoyed her career path through various roles in; customer care, fashion, retail, tattoo and body jewellery, which of course makes her the perfect fit for Cherrycore.
The services that Bianca will be offering will grow as she successfully completes each aspect of her training curriculum.
She has already completed her training in Bloodborne Pathogens, Cross Contamination Prevention, Piercing theory, most areas of body piercing practical assessments and is currently formally studying Jewellery and Gemstones.
This assures you when it comes to hygienic care and quality, Bianca shares our same passion for safety, best practice and quality.
If you asked Bianca to categorise her personal curating style, she simply couldn’t, as she loves every thing from edgy to elegant, making her a power-house at styling for each individuals' style rather than just her own.
Regardless of if you are thinking that you love the idea of smooth snug rings, a hint of sparkle or a piece that makes you the envy of the ball, you will definitely love your styling appointment with Bianca, just as much as we love having her on our team.
Meet Evie; Evie is now part of our back of house crew, and while some clients may remember Evie from her previous roles at Cherrycore over the past 6 years; her role is now predominately focused on back-of-house administration and management.
Cherrycore is where Evie first started her working career and with her experience with us over the past 6 years, she keeps things moving perfectly for the rest of the lead piercing team.
In the future, we are sure you will see more of Evie as her role grows into new directions including customer care. After all, if you have ever met her, you already know that she is way too fabulous to be kept out the back! We know she is going to take over our front reception and be an amazing stylist as she continues to grow her knowledge on jewellery; which of course she is already obsessed with.
Meet Zara; Zara is our newest team member & a junior at Cherrycore. This is her first place of employment, so while she is still finding her feet she may seem very quiet in front of clients, but believe us; she is sassy with an amazing personality, and once she finds her confidence with clients we know you will love her energy.
For now, we ask guests to be mindful that she is a junior and will not be assisting with clients for some time. Our lead team will take care of face-to-face needs.
