Future Employment? | General Discussion | Forum
March 18, 2015
I'm looking for a second job right now and I was wondering if anybody knows any good place with a career type of income that wouldn't mind if I started doing more modification.
right now I have 2 stretches per ear and a horizontal industrial in my right, right side of my lip, 5 "X" scarification on my right arm and everything else is hidden by clothes,
but within the next year I'm looking to get my septum pierced, left eyebrow, trans-dermal implant on my left middle finger (I know how hard the upkeep is but I miss it too much) left 3/4 sleeve/partial chest piece, and a sub-dermal silicone implant under the sleevework
there's plenty more that I want done but I'm hoping to find an apprenticeship so i can start working toward the end goal of being a body mod artist before I hit that point.
so yeah, is there any company or type of career that comes to mind for us Modified folk?
BTW I'm living in Southern California, if that helps at all
Don't just make art, Be Art!
My advice would be to look at careers first, and then see how to fit modification into it. A career where you have qualifications and experience are likely to take a more accepting view of body modification.
We spend a lot of time at work, and it should be something you at least enjoy. Modification as a career certainly. There are too many piercers and tattoo artists who do it for the money or an easy life and churn out mediocre or poor work.
If that is your goal because you are passionate about it, try and focus on that. Research studios, get to know them, get work done, qualify in first aid, blood borne pathogens, anatomy, infection control etc.If you need income in the mean time then there are a host of options which tend to be more accepting, such as manual work, call centres, factories, bars etc.
