Jim Ward's much anticipated book Running the Gauntlet—An Intimate History of the Modern Body Piercing Movement is now available for pre-order.
Running the Gauntlet—An Intimate History of the Modern Body Piercing Movement is part memoir, part history lesson.

Jim Ward tells the detailed story of discovering his own fascination with body piercing, his founding of Gauntlet (the first body piercing studio), and the beginning of the modern body piercing industry.

Started as a series of articles written for BMEzine.com between 2003 and 2005 (see them here), this book was available for the first time at the 2011 APP Conference.
