    147 - Talking shop with Cozmo

    I went to Atlanta for some National Wrestling Alliance shows and while I was there I sat down with a piercer named Cozmo to chat. We talked about working in a super busy studio and how to manage the flow with minimal staff and fuss. We also talk about APP volunteering, jewelry selection, and lots of other bits of piercer nerd info.

    I recently held a seminar in Phoenix, Arizona. While I was there I sat down to talk with my host, Kevin Jump. Kevin is one of the people keeping ritual alive in body piercing.

Jedwards601 ,

Love!

I’m a new piercer (only been piercing about 6 months) & this podcast really makes me excited for my journey as a piercer. I’ve listened to every episode at least twice.
This podcast is insanely informative. Ryan and his guests break down & articulate subjects so well. All subjects are relevant & help you think about things in different manners.

I Can’t wait to hear all the new content in the future!
