I saw this with @bloody_little_mandi  yesterday in the catacombs. This skull has a similar slash over the eye that I have. Maybe a glimpse of what I will look like in 300 years…. #paris #catacombs

Raelyn Gallina has passed away.

Raelyn was instrumental in the rise in popularity of body piercing in the early 90s, making Philadelphia a main stop on her body modification tours. She helped to shape what body piercing was, and would become, on the East Coast. I was lucky to have had both piercing and branding work done by her.

She was never given the status in our community that I always felt she deserved, and when I became president of the APP in 2009, I knew I wanted to work to change that, and she was the first person I was able to honor with the APP President’s Award. (She’s holding it in her lap in the video, and you can read more about it in The Point #48, at safepiercing.org.) Of all the things I was able to do as president, this was one of my accomplishments I’m most proud of.

Over the 20-plus years I’ve been in the industry, and my time with the APP, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and work with most of my heroes—but Raelyn was still something special. She will be missed, but not forgotten.

@caralaughs19 did a great job healing this nautical star I implanted earlier this year. It has gained some great definition! #bodymodification #bodymod #bodmod #stevehaworth #bme #silicone #subdermal #implants #modify #modified #modification #subdermalimplants #siliconeimplants #shs #h2ocean #loyalty4life #MandiBloodGirl
