Sammy & Sid

Here’s another lovely (and thought-provoking) video courtesy of Shawn (more).. Read on Macduff!

“I dug this footage up when I was preparing a class I was preparing to teach on behalf of the APP; it features Sailor Sid Diller interviewing “Tattoo Sammy” from Frankfort, West Germany.”

“Sammy appeared in P.F.I.Q. #18 (1983) and #19 as the magazine’s first documented tongue piercing. This clip has audio and video glitches (that Roo was kind enough to clean up to the best of his ability) present in the original VHS; that’s why these are so important to share. Once the original masters degrade – this stuff could be lost forever. I hope you guys are enjoying these glimpses into our not so distant past!

Enjoy! – Shawn”
