Piercing History #jimward born 1914 New York he joined a motorcycle club, a joined s&m group and experimented with nipple piercings. During this time he studied jewelry making. Moved back to Colorado where he joined the gay rocky mountaineer motorcycle club and further experimented with piercings, genitals in practicular. 1973, he moved to west Hollywood where he met #DougMalloy. Together the developed the basic techniques and equipment that have become piercing industry standard. Ward poineered many jewelry designs including the fixed bead ring and internally threaded barbells. He was introduced to barbell style jewelry by #Horstheinrichstreckenbach ( Tattoo Sammy) a tattoo it and piercer from Frankfurt, Germany and his student Manfred"tattoo"Kohrs from Hanover, Germany. Ward opened the first private piercing studio called "The Gauntlet" He drew in clientele by running ads in local gay and fetish publications. After 3 years of refinement worth techniques and equipment, opened The Gauntlet as a commercial storefront operation in West Hollywood on 17, November 1978.The establishment of this business - considered first of its type in the United States - was the beginning of the body piercing industry. #piercing #bodypiercing #bodypiercinghistory

Sleepercar-West Texas. I was a lot more closed minded before I heard this album. Sleepercar is an alt country side project of Jim Ward, formally of At the Drive In and Sparta. When I heard that he was in a country side project I was confused because I loved his other bands, but believed there was no such thing as good country (or rap). When I finally took to listening, I thought it was great! I love how laid back this album is. My favorite song is the last, Stumble In. I remember going on a trip through Texas a few years ago. It actually got pretty boring, but once the sky started looking like the cover art, I couldn't resist streaming West Texas on Spotify. Jim Ward hasn't been musically active over the last several years. Supposedly his band, Sparta, is back together. They released a new song and did a tour a few years ago, but have since gone quiet again. I don't really care what band Jim Ward is in, but I'd really like to see him get musically active again. #sleepercar #westtexas #jimward #sparta #atthedrivein #country #alternativecountry #cd #musicreview

Sand Which Is. Burn Right Through. Features guest vocals from At The Drive-In members Jim Ward and Cedric Bixler. Sounds a bit like At The Drive-In, too. Favourite tracks: Euthanize Jitters and Plasticity Index. Members (at least few of them) later went to form Avec, another awesome band. #recordcollector #recordcollection #indierock #sandwhichis #90s #90semo #atthedrivein #jimward #cedricbixler #rarerecords #rarecd #indiemusic #alternativerock #emo

A lot of different genres could amaze me from time to time. But I'll always come back to melodic and emotional music somewhere between songwriter sounds and alternative rock. This feels like home. #jimward #dustinkensrue #moneen #hotwatermusic #chuckragan

15年振りにSunset Blvdを歩いています。 当時と同じ、地図を持たず…🚶🏻 ボディピアスに興味を持ち 何も知らない町に来たあの日のことを思い出しながら。 Jim Ward 1970年代後半から、現代のピアシング文化の礎を築き上げたガントレットの創始者。ゲイであり、SM愛好者。 まだまだ、ピアスやタトゥー、SM、同性愛者などのマイノリティに対する差別や偏見が根強い中、 純粋にピアスのエロティシズムを求めて、 ワインのコルクとピンで耳に穴を開けることからスタート。 ニューヨークでジュエリーの作り方を学びながら、バイクコとSMコミュニティに所属していた。 ある時、SMクラブで、乳首にピアスをしている男性を見て、乳首にピアスを開けることに憧れを覚え、自力で穴を開けたものの、あまりうまく開けることができなかった。 バイクのコミュニティにも所属していたJimは、 ハリウッドの同じくバイクコミュニティにいる友達を通して、資産家のDoug Malloyと知り合い、 乳首にどうやったら上手にピアスを開けることができるか相談。 当時のジュエリーはJimには高すぎたため、 ジュエリーの作り方を学んでいたJimは、 自分で乳首用のジュエリーを作ることを思いつき、Dougは、それをビジネスにしたらどうかと提案。 費用面と、またさまざまなピアスに詳しかったDougの助けを受けながら、まだまだ前例のない分野で、手探りながらもピアスビジネスをスタート。 試行錯誤しながら、どの形状の道具が一番キレイに安全にピアスの穴を開けることができるかなどの開発をしていく。 みんなに安全にピアスを開けてもらうため、 自分の経験と知識を元に、Piercing Fans International Quarterly (PFIQ)を発行。 小さなスタジオからスタートしたのが、ゲイやバイク、フェティッシュのコミュニティから支持を受け、3年後の1978年にGauntletをオープン。 ボクの生まれた年🐴 ボディピアスの公式カラーの紫を広めたのもJim。ゲイのコミュニティでは、ハンカチをズボンの後ろポケットの右左どちらに入れるか、また色で、自分が性的活動でどういった分野に興味があるか、メッセージを送り合っていた。 例えば、ズボンの左に入れてる場合はS、右に入れている場合はM。色が黒なら、SM好きなど。 その中で、ピアス好きというのを表すカラーがなかったため、紫をピアスのカラーとして選び広めていった💜🍆🍇 #app2015 #safepiercing #bodypierce #gauntlet #jimward
