About this title


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.
