The Suicide Girls are the alternative, pierced and tattooed online sorority that has become a world wide phenomenon. Started in Portland by Missy Suicide and her friends in 2001, the Suicide Girls broke conventional notions of beauty and the pin-up girl ideal as defined by men's magazines and the culture at large. Unlike the stereotypical blonde, anorexic, and surgically enhanced buxom babes of the "Baywatch" ilk, Suicide girls come in all shapes and colors, with the aesthetic leaning more towards punk rock and vintage Betty Page.

Since launching Suicide Girls, Missy has become a sought after voice on this growing subculture, and on young women's desire for self expression and identity. She has been interviewed on issues relating to music, the Internet, pop culture and body image on numerous radio stations and in publications such as the New York Times, Wired, Spin and Elle. She was recently chosen to model as part of Peta 2's 2008 "Ink, Not Mink" celebrity, anti-fur ad campaign.

In addition to the millions of visitors that frequent the SG website, this book will appeal to both men and women (their membership is split nearly equally) who thought the shy artsy chick with the black eyeliner and a nose ring was the sexiest girl in high school [e.g. every guy in Williamsburg, Silver Lake and beyond].

Come peruse the fresh pressed pages of the suicide girls' latest tome of nuanced sexuality! Prepare yourself for the valentine's holiday by surrounding yourself with a beautiful bevvy of women - present your lover with an autographed copy of the new book! you are bound to be rewarded! "SUICIDE GIRLS" By Missy Suicide, published by Ammo Books, hardcover, 11 x 11 inches - 312 pages ISBN: 9781934429167, $44.95
