Sharrin Spector & pat baillie

Sharrin Spector comes to this women's community as a body modification artist, teacher, vendor and event producer. She found the leather community in Seattle and jumped in with both feet. Sharrin has been active in the BDSM community for the last 20+ years. She was one of the organizers of the first lesbian BDSM conference, Powersurge, held in in Seattle in 1992. Her passions for blood, rattan canes and being on the receiving end of excellent service moved her into being a much requested educator and player. Sharrin has taught for numerous organizations including Black Rose, Thunder in the Mountains, Dark Odyssey and IMsL. She supported the bay area community through Pierce Ink, her body modification shop, for 20 years. She worked on IMsL for the last 4 years to streamline the registration process and bring innovative new ideas into reality. When not traveling, she lives in a non-traditional "poly-cule" in Oakland, CA, is lead piercer at Bulldog Tattoo in San Francisco and continues to do branding and scarification by appointment around the country! This year, she became the executive producer of International MsLeather.  She is ready to create an incredible party for 800 of her closest friends and remind us all why we love what we do on April 24-27, 2014 in San Jose, CA!
