Burning Sensation II

Back in December of 2015, we posted a few photos from this series- Sailor Sid Diller tattooing a flame on the perineum of Jack Yount 1 – but this one somehow slipped through the cracks. 2

This would have been taken in the mid to late 1980s, performed at Sid’s Silver Anchor location. Jack would go on to have a urethral reroute opening in the center of the flame- “a waterhole to put out the fire” as he put it in Charle’s Gatewood’s Erotic Tattooing & Body Piercing Vol5.
