Piercing Ken Thoughts: None of these requirements surprise me at this point in time based on the world around us.
Back in October and November, I attended the New York Comic Con and Anime NYC convention for my PiercingMetal.com website and since around that time I’ve been working in COVID safety on Broadway and there are a number of similar rules to follow if you wish to attend a show.
You need to be fully vaxxed which I am, and you must wear a mask at all times which I am now used to. If these rules are a problem for you then you might need to wait out until the next go round of this fun convention. Attendees and the curious can chime in down below but if you want to balk about these regulations please go back to Facebook and do that on your feed as I’ve not the time for that here. See you next time my readers and please keep safe out there. We are not yet out of the woods and I like knowing you are all fine and dandy. Ciao.
