Chickasha body piercer makes lasting impression

CHICKASHA — Randy Getman, owner of the Red Feather Gallery Body Piercing, likes to poke fun every once in a while.

When a nervous customer comes in for a piercing, Getman gets out a giant piercing needle and mammoth piece of barbell jewelry.

“It gets them laughing and breaks the tension,” Getman said.

Getman has been piercing for 16 years. The Red Feather Gallery has been open in Chickasha for 12 years. Getman said he started piercing because his wife, Sue, who he was dating at the time, was into body piercing.

With a needle and a piece of jewelry, Getman has made a lasting impression on his clients.

He said that he has former customers from Stillwater, Norman and as far as Houston come back when they want another piercing or just to say hi. After being around for 12 years, Getman has even seen former customers bring in their kids.

Locksmithing, piercing, oil painting, horse raising are just some of the trades that Getman has been involved in. The walls of the Red Feather Gallery are decorated with some of his oil paintings depicting wildlife and western life.
