October 2014 BMXnet in Essen, Germany

Focus of our work is consumer protection, information and helpdesk to the bodymodification industries customers and by that we try to do our part in public health and education for a better, cleaner and professional industry. Education and the availability of information has always improved different parts of our daily life and it is about time to do that to the whole spectrum of bodymodification. Our goal is that regulations are made with a sense of proportion and that the industry will be involved in this. To reach all that goals one of our main instruments is the yearly conference we do to bring bodymodification professionals (tattooists, piercers and so on) together to share, learn and get updated – also for us this is the basis of our work to gather and publish information to the public. Next to this main mission, we want to develope and maintain the cultural aspects of bodymodification. To bring ancient rites like suspension, Kavadi and so on to the modern aspects of sterile and hygienic approved procedures.

    Brian Skellie makes it easy for you to anodize your titanium and niobium body jewelry with detailed information and rationale, accompanied by live demonstration and step by step instructions.

These questions and more answered in this class.
    Topics covered:

    • How and why to include anodization into your workflow for a cleaner and less reactive titanium surface finish
    • Scientastic live demonstration!
    • How to offer instant coloration / re-colorization for customers

    This workshop is an introduction to basic piercing procedures without using clamps. The focus of the workshop is to introduce people into different methods of “free-hand” piercing and pointers as to how to start getting used to piercing with less tools. This is a great workshop for beginners as well as a good refresher for the seasoned piercer.
  • Practical usage: Statim (2h with Chris Glunt)
    This educational session will cover the proper use of a Statim autoclave for body art procedures, important work practices for a busy studio, and how to safely maintain these machines in your everyday operation, and answers to your questions. Brian introduced these autoclaves to our industry in the 1990’s, and hundreds of professionals have come validated fast sterilization cycles, which makes them ideal for sterilizing jewelry and all the items as needed for each piercing. In this class we will explore how they should be handled in our daily routine. If you have a Statim in your studio or you plan to invest in one, this will be a familiarizing perspective you won’t want to miss!

    Part of being a professional piercer is understanding the materials we use for initial piercings. After attending the class you will have a working understanding of why we use the grades of Titanium and Stainless Steel that we do, with an emphasis on understanding the importance of ASTM designations F136 and F138. Although the class has been offered several times, the extensive research allows the class to be updated so it is always current and factual. The class is highly technical, detailed and informative.
