First book to reveal the shocking Body Mod scene in Japan!

As with most things they embrace, the Japanese have taken the Western cult of extreme body modification to new extremes in recent years. Scar Factory is a document of the Japanese scene in words and pictures.

Includes Japanese tours by scarification and piercing/implant artists Lukas Zpira and Steve Haworth; interviews with extreme manga artists Hideo Yamamoto ('Ichi the Killer') and Kago Shintaro; a pictorial history of Torture Garden Japan; clandestine tribal gatherings in Osaka, Tokyo, and Kyoto; a branding festival in Tokyo in 2004; body suspension parties in Tokyo; Eizo Mamiya, Japanese Body Mod pioneer; and interviews with extreme body modification practitioners.

With over 200 wild color photos, Scar Factory is yet another eye-popping, cutting-edge document of the Japanese underground from Creation Books.
