Running The Gauntlet

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 between 2003 and 2005 (see them here), this book was available for the first time at the 2011 APP Conference.
