BSTA: Oral History

The following are oral histories as remembered by the subjects, many of whom have left the piercing industry years, if not decades ago.  Memory is a tricky thing, despite age – we all recollect things the best we can.  Even the sharpest mind can manage to turn a blue tie green with some time.  We strive to present everything in the most historically accurate representation possible with the information we receive and the resources we have.  If at any point you should find discrepancies with timelines, information, spelling, etc, we would love to hear it, and encourage you to send them to [email protected]

Thank you, and enjoy!



  1. I’m disparately trying to arrange a suspension – I live in North Carolina but travel frequently. I’m willing to go anywhere to attend, how can I make it happen?
