Scar Culture by Toni Davidson download in ePub, pdf, iPad

Scars from this method often have an inconsistent texture, although this relies heavily on the experience of the artist and aftercare of the wound. This is by abrading scabs and irritating the wound with chemical or natural irritants such as toothpaste or citrus juice. This is a more precise form of scarification, because it is possible to greatly regulate the depth and nature of the damage being done to the skin.

Scars from this

True, some may hate that, but this was a mark of pride, not shame. Most of the ink remains in the skin as the cut heals, and will have the same basic effect as a tattoo. Human branding is one type of scarification. It is similar in nature to livestock branding. If an enclosed area perimeter is cut or branded, the skin inside the closed space may die off and scar due to a lack of blood flow.

This is by abrading

It is not uncommon, especially if the wound is being irritated, for a local infection to develop around the wound. The common practice on healing a scarification wound is use of irritation.

Thus, in order to have pronounced scars, the wound may be kept open for a protracted time. Permanent body markings emphasize social, political, and religious roles. These cuts, when healed, form raised scars, known as keloids. Cicatrisation is a special form of scarification where a gash is made in the skin with a sharp instrument, and irritation of the skin caused by applying caustic plant juices forms permanent blisters. These symbols are usually alien to our cultures, traditions, thinking, and history.
