Rest in Piece Dave Kelso

New Flower Studio Body Piercing

It seems too soon to restart the grieving process, but we must. On January 7th, 2022 the body piercing community lost yet another of its beloved members. Dave Kelso from Evolved Body Arts in Columbus passed away leaving us all shocked and saddened.

Dave was a member of the Association of Professional Piercers volunteer staff making him one of the most visible and friendly faces at the conference in Las Vegas each year. His presence can’t be replaced and our hearts go out to everyone in the Evolved studio’s family.
