Yes it is that involved. Among the numerous highlights that happen over these few days are the special showcases that are sometimes only open to the CMJ Badge holders while others let the general public in with the purchase of a ticket. One of the events that PiercingMetal.com has enjoyed since its inception is the Skateboard Marketing Showcase that is spearheaded by the company’s founder Munsey Ricci.
