Chad Vahila is the resident Piercer at Thunderbolt Tattoo & Piercing who believes in safe, high-quality piercings. Born and raised in small town Ohio, he moved to Atlanta to be with his now fiance and started piercing at Thunderbolt. 

Chad understands what it takes to have a pleasant piercing experience and loves to individually tailor each experience to each individual person. He has a particular fondness of piercing nervous newcomers- patience goes a long way.

Along with being the head piercer at Thunderbolt, he is also a member of the Association of Professional Piercers and is constantly searching for newer, better methods and materials for the job. 

When he isnt at the studio he spends his time hurdling his body around racetracks at high speeds on motorcycles and binge playing pirate games on Xbox Live.
