Documenting the tribal roots of the present renaissance of piercing, tattooing, body painting and scarification around the globe, this is an entertaining, informative book with excellent photos and great commentary. The book gives a general overview of the multi-faceted world of body modification and also has a glossary in the back for those unfamiliar with some of the terms.
