Uncovered: PFIQ 12

Annie Sprinkle documented her side of Fakir Musafar’s 1982 visit to NYC in Velvet Talks magazine, with Fakir’s story to be published in issue #12 of PFIQ. With a cover provided by illustrator Bud Larsen, Fakir’s article and photographs join the first appearance of The Incredible Til of Cardiff and the Pierce with a Pro: Clitoris tutorial in issue 12.

Til there was you

incredibletilsacreddebrisIf I had a dollar donated for every view that the ‘Incredible Til’ video has received since I uploaded it shortly after Sacred Debris launched in 2014, I’d have enough money to buy well over 300,000 dollar items at the local five and dime. That’s not necessarily a reminder that you should throw some love into the tip bucket if you like the content- much of it literally one of a kind- that we post here at SD… but it’s also not NOT one.

With that out of the way….

“The Incredible” Til of Cardiff made his debut in the pages of Piercing Fans International Quarterly thirty-five years ago and has remained one of the most searched-for names in our “how did you find us” queue. While I suspect that most people are searching for pictures of what made him so incredible- an invertible sub and super incised penis that could be turned “inside out”- today’s update is a rare glimpse at the man behind the member.

Interestingly enough every photo of Til in the SD archives finds him with his eyes closed.

This photo dates back to the late 1980s and features tattooing by Alan ‘Mr. Sebastian’ Oversby.




 

Til of Cardiff: Tattoo

Model: Til.
Artist: Alan “Mr. Sebastian” Oversby.
Procedure: Tattooing.
Year: 1982.
Location: London, England.

Without a doubt, the video of the ‘Incredible Til’ showing off his inversion has been the most viewed video on Sacred Debris since it was added in January of 2014. The master video- complete with sound and a much better picture- has been discovered and will be digitized for archival as part of the 8mm restoration project; I hope it sheds some light on what’s going on with his nipples- it’s hard to tell from the photos but there appears to be behind the areola deep piercings with some level of nipple nullification/modification. The jewelry in the deep piercings looks incredibly DIY with wrapped ends. It’s really difficult to tell what’s what.

The fresh tattooing in this photo is being performed by Alan ‘Mr. Sebastian’ Oversby.

Signatures of the Past

signatures

Jack Yount, Jon Cobb, Sailor Sid Diller & Viking Navaro

It’s always a treat to find a handwritten note on the back of a photograph that I’m scanning for archival; it adds an indescribable personal connection to the journey that it’s taken over the decades. Lately I’ve been obsessed with collating the signed/notated images and making it a priority to get the back scanned along with the front.

The images in today’s update contains a Silver Anchor business card with a note from Jack Yount, a signed photo of Jon Cobb’s transcrotal piercing, and labeled photographs from Sailor Sid Diller, Bud ‘Viking’ Navaro and Til of Cardiff.
