Piercing book tip

Piercing book tip

There are many books you could read about piercings and body modifications and other things that have to do with these, you just have to know about them. Most of these are either in English or in German. Personally, I don’t read German, simply because I don’t understand the language. Which narrows my research field on that part but I can tell you about book in English though. Many books on this subject are written in English simply because most pioneers in the field are from the United States. So there, let me share some tips I have for you.

This time: RE/Search: Modern Primitives.

This book was one of the reasons why I became a body modification enthusiast in the first place. This book enlightened me about all things around body modifications, body piercing, tattoo, scarification and the like. First I thought these practises were for the ethnic minorities of Africa, South America, Australian aboriginals and ethnic groupings like that but when I discovered this book, at a very young age, it opened my eyes towards what was possible in the western world.

This book speaks a lot about the great pioneers in the field of body modification, body peircing, scarification, tattoo, branding and such. People like Fakir Musafar en ManWoman for example.
