Under Your Skin
Sat, Dec 16 from 4pm - 11pm
Let’s play with pokey things! Join our team for 7 hours of instruction, from the basics of needle play through advanced related topics. The day is broken down into 3 parts: a structured hands-on workshop where you can learn all the skills needed for a play piercing scene; a discussion panel full of tips, tricks, and exciting stories; and a practice time with tastings, tutors, and small focus group skill-shares.
Topics to be covered:
- How to do a temporary piercing
- Anti-contamination and health considerations
- Determining the right place on the body to pierce
- Choosing piercing locations and techniques to match your scene goals
- Skin Anatomy & palpation skills relating to the skin
- Building on the basic skills (getting creative)
- Other types of sharps to play with besides hypodermic needles
Dinner (with vegetarian & gluten-free options) will be served approximately 7pm during the panel discussion. You are welcome to bring additional snacks or your own dinner. Please bring your own water bottle or non-alcoholic beverages to stay hydrated.

About the Educators:
Najalaise is maniacal but decent. Naj joined the organized BDSM community in 2005, but was exploring kink and introducing others to play piercing, figging, sounding, fisting, and more for years before that. More recently, Najalaise has had the pleasure of presenting at Paradise Unbound, Seattle’s Foundation for Sex Positive Culture, and conferences across the country. They have also taken a turn behind the scenes, including working on the organizing committee for the 2013 Kink LINCS Leadership Symposium, serving as Programming Director for Paradise Unbound 2014, and planning parties and panel discussions at on an ongoing basis. Naj is gleeful about learning and trying new things, both as a top and as a bottom, and is invested in creating spaces that foster knowledge and creativity by making it okay to screw up in public.
Sophia Sky was raised by wolves. After she was socialized, she became a massage therapist and then taught at a nationally accredited vocational school. As an anatomy geek, she delights in sharing how knowledge of the body can increase fun in BDSM and sex play.
Naj & Sophia are currently assembling their cohorts and will announce them as they are confirmed in event listings.
