William Rafti is a delusional monomaniac best known for his book, "The Body Piercing Encyclopedia", a 340+ page compilation of various copyrighted materials stolen from all over the body modification community (including BME), as well as diagrams and text created by the author which are confusing, idiosyncratic and misinformative, at best.
He has made broad claims in the past that his book is endorsed by various body modification professionals, and that he has worked closely with local government agencies crafting body piercing related legislation or policy.
