MitaBear (or just Mita) (They/Them/He) is a multi-racial, genderqueer, kinky fucker whose BDSM is intimately entwined with their spirituality. Mita has been modifying bodies using various methodologies since the 1990s. They eventually left the piercing shop behind to look for something more, for ritual. Mita has spent the last decade combining body modification, S&M, and spiritual ritual. Mita is Head of House Anchor, a Leather family dedicated to supporting each other in personal growth and service to the community. Mita is co-producer of Ritual Steel, a transformative ritual piercing event intended to provide a unique spiritual and educational experience. They believe firmly in building our community. Mita volunteers their time at events to create a safe space for anyone interested in education, enjoyment, and growth in BDSM and energy focused spirituality. Through their businesses, MitaBear Designs and MitaBear Coaching & Consulting, they sponsor Leather and LGBTQ events around the United States.
