Shawn Porter is one of my oldest and dearest friends in this community. Aside from that, he has been an integral part of the body modification world for longer than a lot of you guys have been alive. The BME Wiki entry on him has the basics on his contributions to this community, but really it doesn’t even begin to do him justice.
SPC , BME Extreme, the Modcon events and Scarwars are just a few of the bigger impacts he has made on this community. Aside from these and countless other contributions, he has also helped many people along in there body modification journeys, myself included. Not bad for a guy who doesn’t work in the industry (or “hobby” as he often refers to it).
I won’t go on any longer about Shawn, as I am sure there will be plenty of other stuff shared in the comments section, but please take a moment to wish him a happy birthday, thank him for his contributions, buy him a gift or send him some well worn white cotton panties.
