Throughout his piercing career, Ed has been heavily involved in the Association of Professional Piercers. He first started volunteering at the annual APP Conference and Exposition when he was awarded the Al. D. scholarship in 2003, he served on the board of directors from 2008 to 2011, and was awarded the Josh Prentice award for volunteering in 2009. He’s also been involved with the Asociación Latinoamericana de Body Piercing (LBP, or the Latin American Body Piercing Association), and was given the Beto Madrigal award for service and dedication to the Latin American piercing industry in 2015.
In the studio, Eduardo is a well-rounded piercer and has the ability to perform many different types of procedures. He is very comfortable and confident in the abilities and has a very calm and grounded personality. Aside from basics, he enjoys doing large-gauge work as well as scarification. Eduardo is also very involved in the body suspension community: He is a founding member of the troupe Constructs of Ritual Evolution (CoRE), and has worked with many of the nation’s top suspension teams. He heads his own suspension project known as [kuh-thahr-sis], where he facilitates flesh-hook suspensions and other body play rituals.
Eduardo looks forward to what the future holds for him and is thankful to have a job that he looks forward to doing every day of his life.
