Figure du 'milieu' des modifications corporelles depuis des décennies, on en a plusieurs fois parlé sur BW.

C'est bientôt la fin pour lui, il a posté ce message sur sa page Facebook.


Dear Followers, Fans, Students and Loving Friends,

The time has come for me to inform you that Fakir's shelf life is running out. I have been fighting stage 4 lung cancer since last October, and I am near my expiration date.

I am grateful and honored beyond words to have known you—all of you who have been touched by my presence and followed my example—and the dizzying, fun, enlightening, and delightful experience of seeing so many embrace body piercing and body rituals. I never expected our passions and practices to grow to a global phenomenon—that my early visions of Modern Primitives would expand beyond my wildest dreams. Thank you for embracing, growing, and embodying our art, craft, and energetic ritual practices. They have changed the cultural landscape worldwide. May they serve you well in the future.

Though I will soon pass into the unseen world, I take pride in knowing that my legacy will continue with the Fakir Body Piercing & Branding Intensives, hopefully for many years to come. The institution we have built does not cater to the ambitions of a small group of exclusives, but strives to provide broad educational support to everyone drawn by its charms, skills, and magic. Deep, serious learning. This twenty-eight-year journey has not only been mine, but that of a dedicated staff of teachers. We helped one another. We shared with each other. We improved year-after-year. Our devotion is to pass on everything we have discovered to those who want to learn. My heartfelt thanks to Ken Coyote, Jef Saunders, Cody Vaughn, Ian Bishop, Tod Almighty, Jori Zan, BettyAnn Peed, Becky Dill, Laura Jane, Neo Collett, WJ Grindatti, past instructors who moved on, including Dustin Allor, Dr. Natalie Lowry, Fashia Fontaine Zanatta, Sharon Nickle, Seth Cameron, Idexa Stern, and everyone who has supported the workshops and my passions over the years: Carry on!

Now, I have a request: I realize that many of you may wish to reach out to me, but I will be unable to manage a deluge of emails and phone calls in my final days, which I wish to spend in quiet solitude with my loving wife Carla (aka Cleo Dubois.) However, I would very much appreciate a handwritten note from you by postal mail. My address is:

Fakir Musafar
P.O. Box 2345
Menlo Park, CA 94026

For future students, scholars, and press, I am pleased to announce that the Bancroft Library, at UC Berkeley, has acquired my archives, and will make them available for posterity. These archives include my writings, books, interviews, photography, and videos. I have also donated part of my collection to the Body Piercing Archive at the Association of Professional Piercers.

Goodbye dear friends, and may you all have as wonderful a journey as I have had.

Fakir Musafar
May 2018, Menlo Park, California
