For the 101th episode we take a completely different direction, veering sharply from the episode with the Imam of the Islamic Center of Asheville, and discuss body modification. Our guests for this episode are Chris Winslow and Amber Meredith who work at Pure Steam in Asheville. Chris Winslow is an accomplished tattoo artist, while Amber is a veteran body piercer. Benny and Emily talk with Chris and Amber about body modification, tattoos, piercing, and what to look for in a body modification artist.
Tattoo and piercing is a deeply personal, individualized experience for each client, and we discuss the wide variety of tattoos and piercing, the stigmas associated with body modification, and the certification process a tattoo artist and piercing specialist go through.
