This post is somewhat last minute, but any time there is an event aimed toward bringing the suspension community closer together it is definitely worth checking out. This Sunday, December 19th, the Go Up Movement will be presenting Hurt Fest in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. It is aimed toward several different areas of the body modification community including tattooing, piercing, branding, scarification, implants, and suspension. They have worked to create this event in order to bring together professionals from throughout Brazil to exchange information and create a closer community within their country.

Any of us fortunate enough to have other practitioners we can work with to share information know how important it is to have a network like this to help us build and grow. It’s great to see these groups working to come together and learn from one another, and is a huge step toward improving the suspension community. I hope everyone attending has a fantastic time, and that we continue to hear about events like this in the future. I’m sure we will see a lot of wonderful pictures from this over the next few weeks.
