Progressive Piercing Techniques: Instructed by Ryan Ouellette of Precision Body Arts. Nashua, New Hampshire.
This class is for professional piercers only, verification required to register (website listing, license, business card, or personal reference). Registration is at the discretion of the instructor.
This year our focus is on minimizing tools with adapted freehand techniques. Learning how to complete a piercing with nothing more than a needle and jewelry can help increase efficiency in your piercing studio as well as make the piercing easier for the client. We will discus ways to perform piercings from back to front, or inside out. Piercings covered will include inside-out nostril and lip piercings with threadless jewelry, back to front cartilage piercings such as helix and tragus, as well as freehand techniques for nipples, navels, tongues, and more. Learn how to adapt freehand techniques to suit most common piercings. Attendee questions are encouraged, live models will be used to illustrate techniques. Great information you can use in your studio whether you are a newer piercer or have years of experience.
We will also cover alternative equipment use to help aid in freehand techniques.
Needle bending, as well as advances in needle manufacturing.
Making and using disposable connector wire to aid in internally threaded and threadless jewelry transfers.
Alternative marking techniques without the use of gentian violet or skin markers.
