Episode 178 - Hidden Gems: 1993 UK Piercing Article

Lola Slider found a hidden gem for you. Select Pop Babylon (a music magazine from the UK) published a piece all about body piercing in February of 1993. Lola reads the best bits and discusses with Ryan. This is a great time capsule of what piercing was like in the early 90's. Stories about the Gauntlet Los Angeles studio manager Elayne (Angel), stories from Mr. Lifto, stories from UK piercing legend Mr. Sebastian talking about working with Jim Ward and Doug Malloy. We also discuss how a legal case from the 80's (Operation Spanner) still has reverberations in today's piercing scene.
