It’s that time of year again; time for the 19th Annual Association of Professional Piercers Conference and Exposition. This year James, Kellan, Dave, Eduardo, and Kim will be in Las Vegas from June 8 to 13 for a week of classes and continuing education, along with an exposition showcasing jewelry from the biggest vendors in our industry. (You can see the program for this year’s event here.) Both Eduardo and James will be teaching classes this year: Ed is overseeing daily workshops, in addition to teaching “Spanish for Piercers”; James will be teaching this year’s “Male Genital Piercing” class along with APP President Elayne Angel. We’ll also be doing a lot of shopping at the Conference’s exposition, so expect a whole slew of new products in the studio (and online) when we get back.
