Jon Thomas




Entrepreneur of Edge “If I stay with one thing I get bored very easily,” says Jon Thomas, 40, owner of Alternative Sun/Spider-Bite Piercing and Tattoo in Manchester. Well, that explains how what started as a tanning and piercing salon evolved to offer tattooing, a full-service hair salon and extensive retail offerings. Oh, you can also rent the Spider-Bite limo or tune into Spiderbiteradio.com, an online music station that’s been playing up-and-comers like of Josh Logan and Angry Hill for years. Over 1,500 people came out to help celebrate Spider-Bite’s 10-year anniversary this August. “I got into this business because I didn’t think it was a fad,” says Thomas. Here’s to keeping things interesting.

New Hampshire Magazine knows where "It" is at. Each November, we identify the state's most happening people and publish their names and profiles in our annual "It List."

So what defines an "It" Person?

How about buzz, panache, je ne sais quoi, currency,  a person whose time has come, a person of tomorrow, a timeless person, noteworthy, below the radar, in the news, in the know, hot, cool, high impact, slippery, a mover and shaker, a humble saint, a behind-the-scenes operator, a scenery chewer, an unsung hero, a hero who knows how to sing. 

It's a quality that's hard to define, but you know it when you see it.

Above is one member of the 2006 It List.
