Hatchett: What’s your fashion style? 

Pugh: I wouldn’t know what to ‘name’ my fashion sense. My fashion sense is connected to my personality and self-expression and is important to me so I feel like compartmentalization by naming it devalues it. 

Hatchett: Did anything inspire you to get your piercings? 

Pugh: I was inspired by seeing people with piercings when I was younger. I value self-expression. My piercings are a big part of my identity. Where and how I chose to wear piercings is also important. I’ve also got a deeper connection with my body’s healing process. 

Hatchett: How was your day? 

Pugh: Today is a good day. It snowed and was 32 degrees, but nature is amazing and experiencing a piece of nature that doesn’t happen often like snow in Alabama is most appreciated.
