Progressive Piercing Seminar: Ear projects and advanced cartilage fundamentals
Instructor: Ryan Ouellette of Precision Body Arts. Nashua, New Hampshire.
This year’s course features an all new course structure. We will build on the basic concepts featured in previous year’s classes and focus on how to achieve the fancy cartilage piercings so popular in today’s industry.
Join Association of Professional Piercers member Ryan Ouellette as he discusses and demonstrates the techniques used to select jewelry and placement, how to mark sets of piercings accurately, and how to perform precise cartilage piercings and sets of piercings. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and interact with the instructor and models to get the most out of their educational experience. Live piercing will be used to illustrate techniques wherever possible.
Topics covered will include: needle bevel theory to lessen cartilage trauma, marking techniques used to increase accuracy, selecting tools or improvised freehand techniques, jewelry selection theory for ease of healing, understanding the limitations of elaborate options, aftercare principals, and more. Piercings covered will include: daith, faux-rook, custom industrials, the triple forward helix, and more.
Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance, a handout explaining course information, and free samples of materials used in the class provided by our class sponsors including Purklenz antiseptic skin cleanser from SoLabs and silicone coated Katana needle samples provided by Anatometal.
