Anime NYC 2022 Takes Over The PiercingMetal Instagram

The PiercingMetal website was once again in attendance at the awesome Anime NYC Convention that was being held at the Javits Center. While a score of photos and narrative will be posted on the website, one of the things we enjoy most about conventions is upping the content on our Official Instagram. The interested can start their journey with the image below. Please be sure to “Follow” and like as many photos as possible for good engagement.

I hope everyone who sees these photos enjoys them and thanks to all the cosplayers and vendors and artists who stopped for a moment so I could snap them. The first few are up and I am already contending with all the spammers who post comments like “DM us on @worthless_profile”. Fellow creatives should delete this without regard because they are only looking to get the attention that your photo would usually get you. Trust me on this.

New York Comic Con 2022 Takes Over The PiercingMetal Instagram

For the twelfth straight year, PiercingMetal was attending the famed New York Comic Con as a member of the media and with that comes a whole lot of photos so I am going to once again use the site as a redirector to our Official Instagram. We love wandering the aisles and meeting the talented artists and cosplayers along with some cool exhibitors.

As engagement with the social media profiles is super important these days I’m just going to put it out there that any of the readers who are interested in keeping this whole shebang thriving to please come follow this account and like-bomb absolutely everything. Today, everyone we meet is some kind of photographer or “media figure”. Without your support this all fades away but I digress. You’re here to enjoy all the sights and scenes from the amazing New York Comic Con. I enjoyed myself and hope you will as well and oh yeah before you go. The spammers all seem to comment with hot garbage like “DM us on @random-profile” or “Collab with us on @random-profile” and while I delete these with impunity when I see them you should do the same on your own accounts because they only want to steal the little attention you are getting thanks to the new algorithm. See you next time.

Five Points Festival 2022 Takes Over The PiercingMetal Instagram

PiercingMetal was in attendance at the 2022 Five Points Festival. This event used to be held at the Brooklyn Expo Center but they’ve apparently closed and this time around it was at a new venue to my event lexicon called ZeroSpace. The first photo to hit The Gram is below and a lot more are coming.

We ask all of those who are using The Gram to please like the image and add a topical comment to it if they have one. As a matter of fact, we sure don’t mind new followers and being as some of my colleagues call it “like-bombed”. Instagram might not send us any real web traffic worth noting but it does help the larger brand engagement and I’m super cool with that. Thanks a lot. I hope you enjoy this adventure as much as we did.

PiercingMetal Posts 10,000th Instagram Photo (5/15/2022)

Hey there friends, so it’s time once again to laud something that’s going on with one of our most used social media accounts. It was way back in 2012 that PiercingMetal joined onto the Instagram photo-sharing network and while this isn’t our anniversary of creating the account, I am stoked to share that we have just posted out 10,000th Photo. It’s pretty cool to hit this many photographs because I think it raises some branding awareness and now all the photos also include the hashtag for my Ken Pierce Media angle which has been growing strong since launching in June of 2020. So what is this 10K photo all about, well as you can see it is me, and its the other photo taken by my friend in the final days of my COVID Manager job for the “Tina – The Tina Turner Musical” Broadway show. While the gig ended a little more than a week ago I still have the soundtrack running through my head and it was great to help people keep safe in trying times. Onward we go.

Anime NYC 2021 Takes Over The PiercingMetal Instagram

I’ve already mentioned on a number of occasions that I love conventions and especially the ones aimed at my geek interests. Last month I let the New York Comic Con take over the Official PiercingMetal Instagram and I think I posted something like 600+ photos. Now it was time to do a bit of the same for another favorite of mine at the Anime NYC Convention. This convention also went virtual during 2020 and I didn’t get to participate at all based on my just not enjoying the virtual stuff at this point. As I did in October, this notice is to suggest you head over to said Official Instagram and enjoy all the sights and scenes. I really like this event and I am still a bit of a novice when it comes to Anime. Remember to click the “<3" on the images and leave comments for us to know you are out there. https://www.instagram.com/p/CWd5KRZp439/ Site visitors are encouraged to click the heart on the photo and come “Follow” the profile to enjoy all of our other images and adventures. anime nyc, anime nyc logo
