In this week’s episode we speak to a person that has been piercing since our industry experienced its first boom in the 90’s and helped to pave the way for many of us. Since then he has put piercing on the back burner and currently helps manage one of the most well known studios in the country. This individual is Mr. Derek Lowe of Saint Sabrina’s.
Derek and I have a friendly chat over where the industry is heading. As our industry ages and becomes more legitimized, we have started to see a transition from being a piercer to a manager, a shop owner, a jewelry maker, or something among these lines. These roles are becoming more and more common in the industry as it expands. We also take a trip down memory lane and discuss where things have really changed over the last 20 years.
So without further ado, listen in as we talk about managing a team of employees, how the people you surround yourself with can influence your success and the passion our industry has for its livelihood.
