"Modern Primitives" is easily THE best book that explores contemporary body modification. The book has hundreds of pictures, wonderful in-depth interviews with important figures and tons of other great content. Though it focuses primarily on those in the world of body modification today, it also refers back to the origins and meanings in past and present cultures.
The interviews are relevant, interesting and very readable. You could sit down and read the text like a novel or you could simply refer to them for reference as necessary.
The best part is that this book takes an approach that will speak to those reading for personal reasons *and* those reading for academic interest. "Modern Primitives" is entertainly while still highly intellectual. The text is not sensationalistic like many are; it does not set out to shock the reader or obscenely glorify body ritual -- but simply to educate and inform.

Very interesting and educational. Finished the book in two days, kept me reading. A little graphic, which I loved. Love this author and definitely look forward to reading more from them.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 My most valuable book 27 mars 2013
Par Kathryn A. Mays - Publié sur Amazon.com
I came across this book years ago at a used book store, and after flipping through the pages just had to pick it up. It is by far and away one of the best books I've ever purchased, and it's one of the few I will never part with (It's so worn that I need to have it rebound and fixed).
The book discusses a controversial topic known as "Body Modification." There are certain types of body modification that are socially acceptable (weight loss of gain, body building, braces to straighten one's teeth, even plastic surgery) and some that are significantly less acceptable or completely taboo (castration, voluntary amputation, sometimes tattoos and piercings). This book offers a look at a wide variety of different forms of body modification from the most simple (Ed Hardy's fantastic work with tattoo designs, techniques, and popularization) to the more taboo (Fakir Musafar is one of the pioneers of the MP movement, including waist-training corseting, penis manipulation, tattoos, oo-kee-paw ceremonies, and far too many more to go into).
What is truly the most precious aspect of this book is that most of it is done in a interview style; the interviewer asks certain key questions regarding the individual being interviewed and allows them to tell their experiences and work on their own terms. There is no attempt to justify, demonize, or apologize for the lifestyle. It just is and the interviewer respects that.

It's a wonderful book. The pictures can be disturbing (if you're a more sensitive reader or new to the topic/lifestyle), but if you want to expose yourself to something as massively misunderstood and culturally important as body modification, this is the book to check out.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a book i keep picking up again and again 5 juillet 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
let me start by saying that i do very much like a lot of the books that have been published by "re/search".
the title says it all: "modern primitives". published back in 1989 it was - as far as i know - one of the first publications looking into now trendy things such as tattooing and piercing. but don't let this mislead you; it goes beyond those topics!
there are so many great, fantastic, unbelievable, excellent interviews with countless interesting personalities included. i was overwhelmed! still am! i've had this book for a few years now, but i keep re-reading lots of interviews again and again.
here are some of the people that have had the opportunity to speak out in this book: don ed hardy, captain don, anton lavey, leo zulueta, bill salmon, lyle tuttle, vyvyn lazonga, monte cazazza, dan thomé, hanky panky, goodtime charlie cartwright, jim ward and genesis & paula p. orridge (of throbbing gristle / psychic tv fame).
also, there are lots and lots of great photographs; (some by the fantastic charles gatewood). though not all of them for the faint hearted...
this book is a must-have, imho, for anyone interested in stuff like tattooing and/or piercing.
