Piercing Ken Thoughts: This sure does sound like a proper good time and I am hoping that anyone who is able to attend will drop in and enjoy what is going on. It sounds like an Instagram and TikTok dream in terms of photo and video ops and one has to be sure that numerous giveaways will be on the agenda as well as the chance to purchase stuff from the famous store. Sadly I will not be able to participate as I will be tied up in knots from the goings on at the New York Comic Con which begins this Thursday. If you haven’t seen any of the posts that I’ve done about the stuff happening there over on PiercingMetal.com just click HERE to launch a special page of that content from my Music and Pop Culture site. Chime in down below if you think you are going and post your social media channel in that comment so we can see your content as well. That’s all I have on this one my friends, see you soon so please stay safe out there. Ciao.
