This event has passed.
An exploration of Branding, Scarification, Cuttings, Removals & Mutilations.

Body modification is not really so strange within a culture where identity is often expressed through appearance—in mainstream society includes fashion consumption, cosmetic surgery, and botox. This is about intentional permanent or semi-permanent alterations of the living body for ritual, folk medicine, aesthetics, or corporal punishment. This class will cover that broad spectrum of why people do it and the various techniques on how to perform such an alteration.
 
All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, religions are welcome and celebrated.

Cost at the door: $45.
No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time.
Water available. Please bring your own bottle or cup.
Attendance is limited to 30 people.
