Raegin has HAD A PASSION FOR BODY MODIFICATION FOR 10+ years. Her interest in body piercing first started at around age 14. She received her first bellybutton piercing at age 14 followed by a tongue piercing and her first tattoo at age 16. Raegin is a New Jersey native who relocated to South Carolina with her parents in 2009 at the age of 16. Over the course of the next few years, her interest in piercings increased. Shortly after graduating high school she completed a piercing apprenticeship in 2012 at Ink Link Tattoos in Gastonia, NC. Raegin was dedicated and focused on learning as much as possible about body piercing. In 2016, she decided to open her own studio and that is how RAW Body Piercing was established.
