Casey Hosch has been an active fan and member of the body modification community for most of her life. Casey began transforming her passion into a career 10 years ago, when she graduated from hanging around Denver’s first custom tattoo shop, Twisted Sol, to working the front desk and apprenticing at owner Alicia’s second shop, Sol Tribe. She underwent rigorous training under renowned Denver piercers Alicia Cardenas and James Maldonado, each of whom has been piercing for upwards of 25 years. Her education and learning, while never truly complete, has served her well and grown immensely, as she is now the head piercer and shop manager at Sol Tribe Tattoo and Piercing. Casey has been an official member of the Association of Professional Piercers since 2013, and volunteers annually at the APP Conference in Las Vegas. She is a tireless advocate for and active volunteer in the community, representing the APP and her shop at educational events such as the American Public Health Association Conference and workshops for the Colorado Environmental Health Association. She is a passionate piercer who specializes in curated piercing projects, genital work, and children/infant ear lobe piercings, as well as a truly gifted shop manager who is integral to solving problems and ensuring the continued harmony and high vibrational function of Sol Tribe Tattoo. Casey enjoys doing stuff and things. Also, she likes dogs. A lot.
