    its okay when the redness wears off but still not really up my alley aesthetically. but its not bad. shrug, diff'rent strokes.
    i like the leg one here the best.
    the texture component is interesting, though. like it makes you want to stroke the skin and see how it feels.

    I have seen people doing that.
    It's actually kind of fascinating to watch. It's sort of like getting a tattoo, only it's not necessarily permanent.
    Usually the people doing it will either
    A) make a meaningful symbol to them both. Each renewal of the symbol is akin to renewing their vows to each other.
    B) turn the body into an artist's canvas. Some artist's are fabulous, some are doodlers.

    I do not mind it at all, some scarification leans towards the enjoyment of pain imo, and then i do wonder about it. Not just in a 'this hurts' way but also as if the person having it on display is stating 'here i am see my tortured soul on exibit, i'm damaged' .... it can have its own sort of emo beauty as well as being arty


    Edit: You posted some pretty tame stuff. Some of the more clustered and higher raised scarification I find hard to look at, I think it feeds into a phobia/dislike for many little things all together, like swarms of insects. eewk

    Now this is a story all about how, my type got changed, turned upside down. Just wait for a minute and watch chatbox right there, & I'll tell how Gem became the moderator with blue hair.

    In typology central friended and praised, on the picture thread was where she spent most her days. Chilling out, selfies, relaxing all cool, And all typing some people and getting them schooled.

    When a couple of girls who were up to no good, Started annoying her & her friends in the forumhood, She got in one little flame war & got pissed off & said 'I'm moving in with that exboyfriend in the forum with the socionics toffs.

    So Gem pulls up to the forum for a year without being a hater, And yells to typocentral 'Yo creeps! Smell Ya later', Became a mod in her kingdom she was finally there, To sit on her throne as the mod with blue hair.

    Because that's exactly what it is. A wound. Way to open your skin up to infection, morons.

    Can you imagine being intimate with someone who had those? Itd feel like a crop of pimples. Barf.

    It's definitely better than what I saw today at a restaurant. Unfortunately I don't have a photo, because I don't just take photos of random people I meet on the street, of course. But she had piercings...everywhere...both her ears where full with piercings, her face, her arms, her cleavage. And it was all full of rashes, inflammations and pus-filled pimples. There maybe a masochistic tendency in doing stuff like that with your skin.

    Just looking at the OP gives me shivers. I can just imagine being creeped out by touching them. Then again that sort of body modding is totally new to me, so I imagine I could get used to it at a certain point of exposure.

    Oh yeah, if it's temporary then I'd probably be okay with it. A permanent one seems like the kind of thing you'd regret a few months/years down the line. Then again I don't do any body modding at all, never been something that interested me.

    I have doodled stuff on myself with sharp objects before so why not. I wonder how challenging that technique is since my scars just fade away.

    I'm just curious about certain kinds of scarification. For example, is this [image] going to look better when it is healed, or is this already healed? Because if this is the finished product, I don't like it.

    Yah Tak, it does seem that some are finished with that raw coloring intentionally, they may add something to make it like that idk. I think it, like many other things, becomes addictive and the more extreme it gets the less I can identify with it, it becomes the same as substance misuse and that touches certain parts of me I am uncomfortable with.

    Tak, I think that image was a technique that literally removed skin. So the scarring will last signifcantly longer. As long as any normal scar. And it won't look so "pretty" after it heals. (Edited to add: It could also have been fire branded in, but something about that seems off to my memory.)

    The OP's first pic with the zigzag's on the leg, I think added something to the cutting, so the skin would heal around it.

    The second and third pics of the OP, I think are pretty much just raised inflamed skin. This can be created through things like using a ball-pointed clay carving tool. It usually is gone after a few weeks to a few months, but has a risk of parts being more permanent, like a fine scar.

    I think the OP's last one is similar to the previous two, but I'm not really sure.

    Note: i no longer have links to the how-tos for that stuff, so am going by a few years of forgotten memory of reading some on that topic.

    health reasons aside, it does look kinda cool. very novel (for the time being)

    Yeah, I guess it's a matter of degree. The euler's identity one really looks gross to me though :/
