The doctor does house calls. When this photograph was taken there were only a few piercing shops in the world; for clients unable to visit a piercer it was often on the piercer to visit them. I have fond memories of Jack Yount putting on his reading glasses before a procedure; in this case a Prince Albert which Jack performed from the urethra out, and telling stories as he worked to take the client’s mind off of what was happening.

This photograph was taken before universal precautions were widely practices in the piercing community and is presented for documentation and should not be considered best practice.
