Scarring and Scarification

May 27th 2008 16:33
Scarification is not as popular as other body modifications like tattoos, but it's an old modification just like tattoos are. The difference, I believe, is that scarification is a more extreme modification; it's one thing to get a tattoo, but to have someone cut you, brand your, or whatever, is seen as though you have a problem.

There are different forms of scarification that you can opt for, depending on the look that you're going for. The technique that you choose will probably alter the amount of pain that is entailed in getting the scar.

The types of scarification includes:
* Branding
* Cutting
* Chemical Scarification
* Dremel Scarification
* Injection Scarification
* Tattoo Gun Scarification
* Skin Removal
* Ash Rubbing

Each type of scarification requires a slightly different procedure, but in regards to actually getting the scar, ther eare different healing techiniques.

1. Leave it alone, as if the procedure was done properly, it should scar on its own.
2. Irritate it by picking the scab, rubbing it with a toothbrush, or using a chemical or exfoliant. This can cause other areas of skin to be rubbed up with the scab, which can potentially alter the appearnce.
3. Rubbing it with Vaseline to suffocate the wound.

Scarification is not a body modification that one should really do at home. You can hit veins if you dig too deap or cause a major infection. You want to find someone who is experienced that can safely perform the procedure that you want.
