Hey folks, just a reminder that the Italian Professional Piercers and Tattooists Association convention is taking place later this week in Milan, Italy, from January 18-20 at the Leonardo da Vinci Hotel and Convention Center! The convention is sponsored in part by BME, and Rachel will be there to give those in attendance a sneak preview of the brand new BME redesign. Similar to the APP, the conference will comprise classes, lectures and workshops, as well as play host to a jewelry and tool expo, featuring manufacturers and distributors from all over the world. If you’re in the area, come by and join in! Schedules, directions and ticket information can be found at APTPI.org.
