In this week’s episode, we wanted to take some time to talk about an important thing in our industry that is largely skipped over when we reflect on our careers and ourselves. That thing is Self-Care and knowing when to stop burning the candle at both ends.
Our guest for this episode is a veteran of the body modification industry and someone from my home state of New York, John Joyce. John is the owner of Scarab Body Arts, located in Syracuse, NY. He piercers, preforms scarification and has several employees for whom he is responsible for. This in itself is stressful on many levels but John explains how he handles the ever-present pressure that comes in our industry from this occupation.
So listen in as John Joyce and I discuss the hardships that come from always working, and learning when it is OK to have a day off.
