Happy New Year, everyone, and happy fourth anniversary to Sacred Debris!
It’s been a heck of a run so far, and I’m hoping that we can do fun things in 2018.

One of the best additions to the blog in 2017 were the BETTER SAFE THAN ARI interviews that Ari Pimsler has been working on; he’s managed to chat with a pretty impressive lineup of current and former body piercers so far, and our list for the new year is already shaping up to be something special. Getting these memories recorded is very much at the heart of what our goal is here at SD, and with that in mind we’re going to be rolling out a print edition of the BSTA interviews. It’s currently in the pre-order phase over at our online store (HEXAPPEAL) and should be ready in no time at all.

Volume One of the collection contains interviews with:

  • Tod Almighty
  • Dana Dinius
  • Warren Hiller
  • Paul King
  • Gregg Marchessault
  • Sean Philips
  • Jim Sens

The book is a 64 page softcover trade paperback with minimal photos; we really wanted the interviews to speak for themselves. You can preorder it here: Better Safe than Ari: Collected Sacred Debris Interviews Vol. 1.
