Well-known body piercer and TikTok personality Dawn Mitchell has come a long way from the time she was wallowing in her drug addiction and struggling with her mental health to become the lovable and vibrant online sensation she is today. Gone are the days when she would find herself living on the streets and barely getting by, but that was four years ago. Today, Dawn is an inspiration to many, promoting the value of good health, meditation, and self-care to everyone she encounters.
To say that Dawn is currently living out her passions is an understatement. She is dedicating most of her waking moments to helping others fight body dysmorphia, self-esteem issues, and self-acceptance struggles. As someone who has had a first-hand encounter with these realities, Dawn is a living reflection of what so many people are struggling with today. She has, however, found an effective way to rise above her issues so she can focus on promoting positivity and her creativity.
Her body piercing work is one of her ways to express her artistry. She helps her clients feel confident about their choices and stand up for what they believe is beautiful. In a time and age when peoples’ concept of beauty is only that which advertisers say it is, Dawn is breaking the standard, hoping to elevate and expand how people perceive beauty.
While there are countless other piercers out there, Dawn takes pride in her uniqueness and distinct approach in keeping her professional relationship with her clients. She goes out of her way to impart good vibes to make her clients feel special.
“I bring a sense of kindness I don’t believe many other piercers have,” Dawn revealed. “I developed true relationships with my clients, and being bold and honest, I see that’s lacking in this industry. It’s more than money. Body mods can be life-changing for people. I see that. I harness positivity that resonates through everyone around me. I know how to bring light to a dark space. My empathy is very loud, and I make it clear no negative energy is allowed in my space and if someone brings it, I replace it with positivity right away.”
Dawn considers herself living proof that there is more to life after overcoming some of its biggest challenges. She is a testament that people with a dark and difficult past can still enjoy second chances in life when they decide to step out of their struggles and bravely face the world. Her journey to recovery did not happen overnight. There were still bumps along the way, but Dawn never saw them as obstacles to the achievement of her plans. Instead, she used them as motivation to push through to get to where she is today—a stronger, secure, more productive, and happier person.
She believes that people have the innate ability to make things happen if they put their minds to them. Despite their past, Dawn wants to encourage them to believe once again in new possibilities and hustle to see them come to pass. Just as she found her way out of her addiction and mental health struggles before, she is confident that others can as well. It all begins with accepting themselves and working on manifesting their dreams.
