Therefore we politely request our members to refrain from representing speculative theories of this nature.

I’m looking to start doing some guest spots in the coming months/year, and possibly relocate if theres a connection with a specific shop. if anyone knows of any shops that are looking for guest/full time piercers, let me know. I’d prefer to work with shops that use quality Internal threaded titanium jewelry like Anatometal, Neometal, Industrial Strength, BVLA, etc. I’ve been a licensed piercer for 9 years, have attended conference, and know how to work out of a statim. I’m looking for a shop that has higher volume and can make use of a piercer that wants to constantly better himself by attending more classes and intensives. I’ve held piercing licenses/certification in Florida and Alabama, and am willing to take whatever courses are necessary to be certified in most states, i also have my First Aid/ CPR certification.
