Corinna Arlington

Owner/Operator/Goddess of All

Corinna Arlington is the heart, soul, and owner of Sadu Body Modifications. She began piercing in the late 90s, opening Sadu's first incarnation in the back of a Central Avenue record store in 1999. With a background in phlebotomy and a love of the alternative scene, body piercing came as a natural fit for Corinna--and her hard work and dedication helped her business flourish and grow steadily. Corinna is an active member of the Plaza Midwood Merchants Association, regularly participating in and donating to fundraising and cleanup efforts in the local community. Corinna is also a member of the Association of Professional Piercers and is passionate about keeping her body modification education up-to-date to ensure that Sadu offers its clients the best jewelry selection and safest practices possible.
