We sit down for a quick Q & A with the family man Connor Kern and had to pay him in Reece's pieces for his time.
WE KNOW CONNOR THE MODEL AND BODY PIERCER BUT TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOU!
I wanted to be a poker player, I used to spend so much time playing after being taught by my parents young, playing for hours a day on fake money games until I was having to fake my age to enter real tournaments and stuff haha.
WE MENTIONED YOU WERE A BODY PIERCER, HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING THAT?
Since I was 18, I started getting tattooed quite frequently at a certain studio, then they mentioned they were looking to take somebody on for piercing, and from there I started my apprenticeship and learnt to pierce.
WHERE DO YOU WORK? DO YOU HAVE YOUR OWN SHOP?
I now own the studio I learnt to pierce in, Its now Stone Crow Tattoos in Bedford.
WHAT IS THE MOST DIFFICULT PLACE TO PIERCE?
I don’t know what one is the most difficult, but there are definitely some weird and wonderful places people have asked to be pierced in before.
IF YOU COULD DO A SHOOT WITH ANY MODEL OR PHO- TOGRAPHER DEAD OR ALIVE WHO WOULD IT BE?
There are quite a few models I’d love to shoot with, but especially the likes of Johnny Edlind who I’ve followed for a long time and always admired his shots and photography too.
WHATS THE BEST SHOOT YOU HAVE DONE TO DATE?
Best shoots to date would have to be the ones I had most fun on, and I’d say music video shoots have been that. I had to learn to do the drums to a song for a shoot when I’d never picked up drumsticks in my life before that, so it was pretty cool.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TATTOO?
My favourite tattoo would be the Greek goddess on the side of my neck, it represents my daughter as they share the same name.
IF YOU WERE STUCK ON A DESERT ISLAND WHAT ONE THING WOULD YOU TAKE?
Big old bag of Reece’s Pieces as they are my top favourite!
WHAT ANNOYS CONNOR?
I can’t stand hearing people chew their food well loud. So my kids weren’t my best friends for a long while haha.
WHAT ARE YOUR FUTUTE ASPIRATIONS?
I plan to keep moving forward in the tattoo industry, And travel different places with the family.
