We’re at that point in the year where I start looking at what the future is going to hold for Sacred Debris; it’s cyclic and seems to happen every autumn so you folks will just have to bear with me through the sporadic update schedule and lack of new content while I figure out the VAQ of maintaining the site.
Sometimes you just need to stop, smell the roses. and sit around with a buddy-like Sailor Sid and his friend here- and shoot the breeze instead of worrying about updating websites, scanning photographs and importing video (the queue of which is ever growing) for a blog. Continue reading
As my wife and I busily prepare our luggage for this weekend’s trip to the Walt Disney World Resort in (rainy) Orlando, Florida I thought it was only fitting that I put together some very NSFW photos of Jack Yount’s Disney tattoos for archival here at Sacred Debris.
Jack’s quaint little house in Zephyrhills was filled with paintings and statues- mostly homoerotic subject matter but with a noticeable presence of Disneyana; he was a great fan of Mickey Mouse and the Disney animated films and in the early 1990s began a full leg tattoo of iconic Disney moments by Ancient Art’s Just Plain Bud Pierson. The tattoos were a whimsical contrast to Jack’s other more shocking body modifications; the placement of Timothy Mouse 1 shrieking in horror at the sight of his subincised penis was intentionally tongue in cheek.
Jack was very encouraging when I decided on a Disney-themed tattoo for my own back-piece (pictured above at Scarwars2 in LA) by Inksmith & Roger’s Mike Wilson.
The photos include Disney tattoos by Bud, Jack’s pieced, split and silicone enhanced penis and R.S.- the owner of the infamous removed split penis that ended up in a jelly jar.
I’ve been collating pictures of the Disney tattoos my friend and mentor Jack Yount had tattooed on him for a future post; like myself Jack was a huge fan of the ‘house of the mouse’ and chose to have a full leg tattoo of classic Disney characters by Ancient Art’s (Orlando) Bud Pierson, who was also responsible for the stomach and right leg aquatic tattoos.
For some reason this photo, which for for the most part doesn’t feature any Disneyana (save for a peek of Pinnochio, Goofy and a little of Ariel’s hair) caught my eye so it’s presented here, solo, while I finish compiling the rest of the photos and put them in the to-be-scanned queue.
Jack’s penis, by this point, was heavily injected with silicone from famed Modification Doctor Ronald Brown.
Client: Jack Yount
Subincision self done
Perineum tattoo Sailor Sid
Scrotum amputation Dr. Ronald Brown
Urethral re-route: Dr. Ronald Brown
Stomach tattooing: Bud Pierson
Year: 1994 (March)
Location: Zephyrhills, Fla
Due to complications with the teflon coating on one of the stainless steel balls implanted in Jack Yount’s scrotum (he had been castrated and had his testicles replaced with steel) he suffered an infection that turned gangrenous necessitating the amputation of his scrotum. The scar that starts just above his flame tattoo and runs up his shaft is the healed results of the amputation.
His penis had been subincised and his glans split/pierced and the hole that’s visible in the center of the flame tattoo was where his urethra was rerouted to via surgery. His justification for the urethral relocation was difficulty in urinating due to the increase in penis size from silicone injections, but his later experimentation with growing breasts via HRT (and injected silicone) opens up the possibility of different reasons for the opening; Jack kept some of his modifications shrouded in mystery.
Preservation is why this site exists.
Taking aging media- photographs, negatives, slides, documents and videos- and making sure that they’re preserved for posterity has been more than just rewarding- it’s been fun. Seeing old faces, hearing the voices of people long since gone from my life and being able to share them with people who care about them has been worth all of the time spent on SD over the course of the last month. With the recent addition of increased storage space I’ve been able to start actively capturing new content for archival/sharing.
It’s been disheartening to see the condition that some of this stuff is in. Magnetic VHS tapes have a life expectancy of 8-12 years in optimum conditions and some of these have been passed around from owner to owner for years, being played in machines that aren’t running at 100% and generally being considered as a transitory item not a piece of Bodymod history. This update’s video comes from a 23yo VHS tape. Next week’s video update is from a 30 year old tape. I’m torn between editing the videos to remove the damaged segments and leaving them intact with the understanding there will be parts of the video that are going to not play very well. In the case of today’s update there was no way to remove the damage without editing out Jack’s introduction; this will sort of set the tone for future updates. It’s better to have poor quality material than lose out on what makes these videos special.
This video was from one of Jack Yount’s 1991 visits to the Mexico clinic of Dr. John Ronald Brown. Dr. Brown was known in some circles as The Modification Doctor, and in others as The World’s Worst Sex Change Surgeon. Despite a horrible reputation, Brown had a large and devoted clientele from the US and Europe who would make the trip to his clinic for GRS and modification work, which often came with complications but still found clients returning for more work or to fix existing projects. While the quality of his surgical was questionable, Brown believed in what he was doing and truly felt that it was a divine mission to help affirm physically how his clients felt inside.
Jack would often bring small groups of surgical devotees with him on his trips to Mexico as well as arranging with the Doctor to make house calls in his Zephyrhills, Florida home. This trip saw a eunuch having his scrotum removed, a castration, a 1lb stainless steel ball being inserted into Jack’s scrotum and finishes up with Jack having the top of his glans surgically split. The stainless steel ball implant- the third in Jack’s scrotum- ultimately caused serious complications that resulted in the amputation of his scrotum. While nothing was ever confirmed the theory was the teflon coating covering the balls cracked, causing abrasions inside of his scrotum which led to infection and ultimately gangrene. I’ve captured the entire tape for archival but I’m not sure what level of graphic content is appropriate for this blog nor the level of interest readers have in that sort of thing. Use the comments section and let me know what you think.
