Modern Primitives': An anthropological inquiry into a contemporary social enigma--the increasingly popular revival of ancient human decoration practices such as symbolic/deeply personal tattooing, multiple piercings, and ritual scarification. 'Primitive' actions which rupture conventional confines of behavior and aesthetics are objectively scrutinized. In context of the death of global frontiers, this volume charts the territory of the last remaining underdeveloped source of first-hand experience: the human body." *** CONTENTS: * Introduction * Fakir Musafar * Tattoo Mike * Man Woman * Don Ed Hardy * Captain Don * Jane Handel * Wes Christensen -- Mayan Culture * Anton Lavey * Leo Zulueta * Roelyn Gallina * Bill Salmon * Sheree Rose * Lyle Tuttle * Vaughn * Vyvyn Lazonga * Monte Cazazza * Dan Thome * Hanky Panky * Charlie Cartwright * Greg Kulz * Heather McDonald * David Levi Strauss * Jim Ward * Genesis & Paul P-Orridge * Miscellaneous * Quotations * Sources * Index [via]
