The Key to my Heart: Bruno


It’s almost Valentine’s Day!
While not as gaudy as Christmas, as spooky as Halloween or quite to the level of Easter’s candy excesses Valentine’s Day is still one of my favorite holidays. Probably because I like getting cards. And flowers.

And while he’s never officially said it, I’d like to think that Bruno would be my Valentine, if I asked. You can see more of his modification work on his tumblr feed here: BrunoBMA.

Shawn Porter has spent the majority of his life in the modification world. As a body modification archivist and documentarian, he has one of the most extensive collections of documents relating to the early American body modification community outside of academia. He edited the SPC website from 1995 to 2005, co-founded ModCon, was the host of ModCons 3.5 and 4, and created and hosted The Scarwars Project from 2004-2007. In 2011 Shawn launched Occult Vibrations, a blog devoted to traditional American tattoos with a focus on the occult and esoteric. He currently resides in Philadelphia with his wife Julia and their creepy pets Mr. Bailey Papers and L. RonBenet Ramsey.
