As an “old fart” by the piercing industries standard, I have a high appreciation for things in the modern history of body modification. In talking with lots of young piercers and modification fans I am often shock and saddened by their total lack of knowledge (and to some degree lack of caring) about where this community came from. This is why I try and do From The Vault features to show readers some of what happened pre-modblog.
Anyhow, I used to post these trivias on my iam page, with random prizes and I thought it would be fun to post them here occasionally as well. I don’t have much in the way of a prize to offer, but whomever gets all the answers in first (or in the event no one gets them all right whoever gets the most correct this weekend) can either have a feature on themselves, or an artist or friend of their choice on modblog.
For the questions, keep on keeping on.
