At A Glance Author anonymous Artist ME Studio At home
Having been interested in body modification for a while, I was interested in trying something myself, I just couldn't figure out what. I started shaving my pubic hair about a year ago and that had only whetted my appetite for something more. For some reason I have an aversion to jewelery of any kind (I just can't stand it), so I ruled out piercings. Then I came accross an article about branding in a newsgroup, and I figured I'd give it a try. I wasn't too worried about the pain, since I have experimented with some not so light SM stuff before. I wasn't worried about the permanence aspect either, since that was basically what I was looking for anyway. The only condition I had was that it could not be visible under normal conditions (ie dressed for work), since I work in a professional environment. I started with images of a complicated artistic masterpiece (I actually began experimenting with moulding a wire coat hanger into various forms), but after doing a little research (and ruining about a dozen hangers), I realised it wasn't as trivial as I thought, so I decided to tone it down a bit and at least start with something small. I finally decided on imprinting the letters "UW" on the head of my penis. This would satisfy my desire for permanence, while being "discreet" at the same time. The fact that it aroused my SM tendencies was a plus too. I set aside a Friday night for this, figuring it would give me the weekend at least if I needed some recovery time. Ariving home from work, I was so excited I didn't even eat supper. I got together the materials I thought I would need. These included a paper clip which I pre-shaped, a propane torch, some vice-grips, gloves, and some rubbing alcohol. Although the paper clip was easier to mould than the wire coat hangers had proved, it was pretty tough getting something that small to a shape I was satisfied with. This is probably where I had the most trouble. I'm not very good with my hands, and I ended up having to buy a box of paper clips because I quickly ruined the half-dozen or so I had lying around (I was so excited I shaped the paper clip the weekend before). Once I had everything, I cleared away some space in the bathroom, I placed a couple of pots full of ice water strategically around the bathroom in case some mishap occured with the torch or with me. Then I donned the gloves and heated the clip. This was where I almost changed my mind. I had no idea how much to heat the clip. I was afraid if I didn't heat it enough I would just burn myself badly without a good end-result, but I was also afraid that if I heated it too much it would soften up and I wouldn't be able to apply enough pressure to acheive the desired affect. I had visions of burning the head of my penis so badly I would have to be hospitalized, but for some reason my biggest fear was not amputation but that I wouldn't be ready for work on Monday! In the end I decided to throw caution to the wind and extinguished the torch in preperation for the final act. Here I made my only mistake. I brought the paper clip to my penis very timidly and was so surprised by the searing heat that I quickly yanked it away, leaving my penis in a very painful state. Smelling the faint odor of burnt flesh, I realised my error. I bravely (or stupidly?) tried again, but this time decided to approach it like ripping off a bandaid. I pressed the paper clip onto the head of my penis very quickly and forcefully and held it there. I was a little better prepared for the shock this time, and surprisingly after a couple of seconds I felt minimal pain. I guess I burnt the nerve endings. In any case I was able to leave it there for about 5 to 10 seconds, and when I removed it I had a relatively clean "UW" branded on my penis. I rinsed it in cold water and then applied some rubbing alcohol, which I applied a couple of time a day for the next few days, but I really haven't had any problems with infection or anything. In fact, except for the little hicup to start, the whole thing went pretty well and I'm very happy with the results. I don't know if I would recommend this to anyone else though, since I do have a pretty high tolerance for pain. Some people might not find this experience as pleasant as I did. I'm thinking of getting another branding done on my rear, but since this might be too hard to do alone, I'm weighing the possibilities of finding someone to help me out. Now that would definitely make an interesting experience!
