I have been interested in different aspects of body modifications
for quite sometime now. Up until this point I have only been fortunate enough to have had body piercings. I have had a 4ga. Prince Albert, 12ga. Tongue post (done twice), both nipples are pierced with 12 ga. rings, I have an apadravya 12 ga. and countless of play piercings just about everywhere you can think of. I wanted to try something new. I first thought of branding and still want to but for what I wanted it wouldn't have been detailed enough. So I decided to do a cutting.
I spoke to the man who does my, and my slave's body piercings, Joe
from Luna Sea in Providence-He truly is one of the best if not the
best I know, about doing the cutting. We decided the ash rubbing
would be best. So my pet and I designed the design. I wanted a
gothic looking "G" for my last name, and it was to be approx. 3"x5".
Well finally the day came when I was to do it, I say finally
because many things happened which forced me to keep putting it off,
but then finally there I was, laying on the table as Joe put the
stencil on my back. My heart was racing and I was getting very
nervous, this was going to take a while as compared to my piercings
which are over in a flash. I didn't bring any music as others who I
have read about and afterward am kinda glad.
"Let me know when you are ready to start"
one breath. two breaths. exhale. "OK start"
That first cut was long and didn't hurt at all, the scalpel cut right
through the skin with no resistance, it was located more towards the
center of my back and the skin is much tighter there. The second long
cut was much like the first, except for this time I felt the blood
running down my side and the endorphins had started flowing like water
in my system.
I don't remember distinctly much between the first and last cuts so
I will try to elaborate on the entire cutting as a whole here. After
the first few cuts my body didn't know how to react to what it was
going through. I would go for maybe 5 min. before I needed a break at
first. This time period began to greatly deminish as I began reaching
my pain threshold and as the skin became highly irritated. The pain,
however wasn't like anything I remember feeling before, it hurt but
anything remotely like I had psyched my self up for. As I let out
little yelps of pain I began to laugh and giggle at the same time, my
body didn't know how to react so it went through just about every
reaction it knew i think. Somewhere in the middle I took a fairly
long break and laid there as I tried to calm down as I had become very
tense and the rush was almost getting to be too much. My girlfriend
cooled my head with a moist paper towel and gave me water, I could see
she was beaming. By this point she was completely convinced she
wanted one as well. I suppose at that point we were 2/3rds done. The
time between that break and the last cuts was the longest time to me.
My back was highly irritated and aching, I was ready to be done.
Things were coming in waves at this time...I mean it would hurt for a while then I could feel this wave creep up and I would get light headed again and it would be fine. Finally I heard those words I was dying to hear.
"OK, last cuts" and then it was over......." I just need to do
some touch ups" now a touch up, how bad can that be? HA! Those friggin
hurt! and bad! Thank god there were only a few he needed to do
because I couldn't take those for long, but I'm glad he did. All my
points are nice and sharp and all the cuts are the same depth creating
a much nicer design.
"Now the ash is going to sting" Joe told me, and he was right, but
it really didn't "sting" per say more of a warm burn. It felt like
icy hot being rubbed onto my back... He would rub the ash in the wait,
and it would heat up slowly till the point where it was mildly
uncomfortable then fade again. He used a lot of ash so I got to feel
this a couple times.
Then it was time for me to attempt to stand and look at it....both
Joe's and my girlfriends eyes were beaming, I could definitely see
they were both very happy with the outcome. Standing was a fun
experience. The only time I have encountered even a comparable rush
is when I got my apadravya piercing. I was still all giggly and
lightheaded but I saw it and my heart skipped a beat I think. All I
could say was WoW. I actually had gone through with it and it looked
As Joe put a bandage on for the first night every little touch made
me jump as my skin had become soo sensitive during the entire process that even the slightest touch sent a chill down my spine.
We stayed around with Joe for a bit and talked to him, all I wanted
to do was hug him after, I felt so happy, I was truly beaming.
Thanking him time and time again he gave me a hug on the way out and that made my night. I am so glad I had someone do it who I know and respect and trust. I cannot put to words the emotions that I felt that night or the next few days but over all it was a much more moving experience than anything I had done prior.
It's been almost a week now since the cutting, The after care isn't bad just washing with antibacterial soap every day and I kinda have to baby it a little because I do not want to pull the ash out by ripping the scabs off yet. The only problems that I have encountered is I avoid leaning back in things now for fear of reopening it and losing ash and sleeping on my back. I am enjoying this much more than piercings so far, I wont ever stop wanting to feel the needle but this is also something I could become very addicted too.
Well it has been almost a week and a half now and the scabs have all
fallen off, regretfully so did most the ash I think. I am pondering
having it recut, maybe doing it a little differnt im not sure, if i do
the ash again i run the risk of them falling out, I have pondered
having it inked, not sure what problems arise from that, and I have
actually thought about having the scapel heated almost or just red hot
to carterize it as it cuts..but i dont think that I could do the
entire cutting again like that all at once and honestly dont know if
it can be done. If anyone has a suggestion let me know.
If anyone has any questions about my cutting I can be contacted at email@example.com.
Thank you for your attention Neflheim
