Packed full of historic and rare archival photos, exquisite jewelry from around the world (dating from 3,000 BCE to the present) as well as extreme tribal procedures. Required reading for piercers and enthusiasts in or out of the industry. The book traces piercing's re-emergence into western culture and showcases an amazing variety of jewelry from Ancient Europe, Mesoamerica, and Southeast Asia, to mention a few .
