Fakir Musafar is known worldwide for his fifty years of research and personal exploration of primitive body decoration and rituals. Fakir has introduced concepts and practices for the "body-first" approach to explore spirituality in art, body modifications, SM and what he calls "body play". A Shaman, Artist, Master Piercer, and Body Modifier, Fakir has played a significant part in the revival of body piercing, body sculpting, branding and other body-related practices for personal expression, spiritual exploration, rites-of-passage, healing, and reclaiming. He is a co-developer of the modern body piercing techniques in general use today.
