The purpose of this release is to educate and keep our performers safe.
This effect is the ultimate in Geek Magic. You take a needle and slowly push it through your HAND! Your spectators can see that it IS A REAL needle and it REALLY IS going right through your hand.
This effect dates back hundreds of years and although others have taught the secret previously, those explanations are either no longer commercially available or are lacking some key safety information. Magic creator and 'Student of Bizarre' Matt Pilcher has spent over two years studying this effect and has decided to reveal the secret so those wishing to perform this dangerous stunt can do so safely. Too many people have tried to perform this without proper instruction and advice from a professional.
Pilcher covers everything you need to know. He covers what size and type of needle you should use, how to store your needles, how to locate the safest area on your hand, and what you should expect to feel while performing this.
This release should only be purchased by the serious performer -- this is NOT something to play around with.
