The Body Hair Barber Shop

One of the four camps collectively called “Comfort Camp”, which in turn has been asked to be a part of the “Black Light District” Village (by the folks at Debbie Petting Zoo). We are not sure if you need this registration or not IF we are “part” of a village, but we have not yet heard that the village has been “accepted”, so we will submit a questionnaire for EACH of the four theme camps in Comfort Camp (The Body Hair Barber Shop, NGI, Pole Camp, and Gemini Manor Fantasy Matrix) as each would like to be listed in the registry and placed together. This first questionnaire will be for The Body Hair Barber Shop, which is the largest camp of the four in Comfort Camp, and is the main artistic focal point. We will include for plotting purposes all the “general campers” on this questionnaire, with just the actual participants and specifics of the other camps on the other questionnaires. I hope that is ok. Located at Comfort Camp, at the Heart (archway) of the Black Light District, The Body Hair Barber Shop is back to continue the “temporary artistic enhancement and beautification” of the bodies (and minds) of the Citizens of Black Rock. Stop by our famous 2-story steel tent to get a body hair trim or color, or pick a part to paint and roll yourself onto the Body Bus’s giant canvases, then cajole or barter your way into the reflexology and chair massage tent, then finish your experience of comfort with a power mind session with our minister of Joy – it’s your week in the desert, so PAMPER your body and mind!

To date, they’ve always been known as “The Girls”, but I’m sure we can come up with somethinre appropriate. Come see “The Girls” at the Body Hair Barber Shop, four larger-than-life open steel rod female body sculptures created by Los Angeles metalman Greg Abbott. The Girls have been featured as props in movies and awards ceremonies, but they really just wanted to come to the desert to meet Larry Harvey…
