    Default Keith Flint

    I know the internet is awash with "we will miss you" discussions when anyone even remotely famous dies but I feel Keith Flint's passing warrants a mention on here.

    I remember when The Prodigy first came on the TV with Firestarter.

    Keith was pretty scary and one of the first people I had seen with a tongue and septum piercing.

    I'm sure he played a part in making piercings more mainstream and while I don't really think he influenced me (I was going for a feminine look), he undoubtedly influenced others around me which indirectly got me into/encouraged my obsession with body piercing.
    Got: double snakebites|central lip|labret|1.6mm and 5mm tongue|philtrum|angel bites|smiley|septum|3 pairs nostrils|3 pairs eyebrows|bridge|15 & 16 (l&r) lobe/cartilage, rook, 2x tragus, 3x forward helix, conch (both ears symmetrical)|3x navel (74 holes in total)Want: Everything, slowly building up my piercings over time.Next up: venoms; maybe something genital

    He definitely helped a developing rave scene in the very early nineties and had a massive impact when the Prodigy hit the pop charts of the day. Totally insane times.

    It is Keith's Funeral on Friday (according to our local news). Fans are being invited to line the Funeral route. They are expecting thousands to turn up. What a shame this all is.
