Solar Brand: A truly intense experience

This past weekend I drove from my home in Austin, Texas, to Phoenix, Arizona to visit a friend. I needed to get away from all of the madness, and sadness, that was lingering here. When I first talked to Rome about the possibility of visiting, he asked if he could brand me. I didn’t know much about it, only seen about two videos (one of them his) and read a short article on ModBlog once about it, but I said yes anyway. Of course, I did what research I could before I left. However, there’s not a lot out there ... read more

My First Solar Brand

Being very fair skinned, meaning it is impossible for me to get a tan. Ever. I have always had a healthy respect for the sun. It was this respect that made me very curious about solar branding. A tecnique of branding in which the suns rays are concentrated through a crystal sphere into a stenciled image on the skin. I first heard about this method a few years ago from Andrew S. of Las vegas. It was during his sun gazing fast that he had the idea of this sterile form of branding. After testing the procedure on himself and getting ... read more

Do you smell something? my branding experience

i've been pierced. i've stretched. i've been tattooed. i've been cut. next on my list was branding. i've known for a long time that i wanted a brand, but i wasn't sure of the design. several possibilities had been floating around in my head, but none of them seemed right. i narrowed it down to two choices, then realized that one of the first ideas i had come up with was the right one. i would be branded with the rune Uruz. it's a very simple design, just straight lines, and very symbolic. it represents the wild energy present in ... read more

scarification to date

I forget how I first discovered scarification. possibly though the knife play and medical areas of BDSM, possibly the time I saw a girl with a fall arm scar, or possibly though interest in tattooing and looking at links for 'weird tattoos'. At first I thought the idea weird, but gradually grew to like it, much like anything good. in my young teenage years I had self harmed, I also collected (and still do) bladed instruments, from straight razors, to knifes, swords and scalpels, and felt very comfortable with a sharp tool in my hand. I’ve also conducted some minor ... read more

My Strike Branding Experience

I had been a fan of BME for about a year before I decided to look into getting a scarification of my own. In everything I read and all the photos I saw I realized a few things. Getting a skin removal scar was not going to happen, the first reason being nobody in my area was attempting this type of modification and I wasn't sure I could handle a skin removal process. This led me to the branding area of scarification so I did my research, watched videos, looked at pictures of the healing process and pretty much knew ... read more

My First Scarification

Since I was young I have always been interested in body modification, always wanting to go bigger and further than what is considered normal and pushing my body beyond what I think I can handle. I was 18 years old at the time when I decided I wanted to go beyond the numeral surface cuttings that I have had, I wanted a permanent planned scar. Knowing that this would probably be even more permanent than a tattoo I took my time deciding what exactly I wanted and where. I chose a three sided yin-yang, a sign of my BDS&M lifestyle, ... read more

D.I.Y Scarification Experience. (The begining of my own being my own person.)

Ever since I was little, it was drilled into my naive brain that piercing and tattoos were disgusting and trashy, so, of course I believed it. Any time I saw a piercing, I'd think, "Ew. That's sick." Especially say, nose piercing. The same went with tattoos. I always thought they were stupid and ugly. A few years later, I went to middle school. Yep, as most would tell you, it changes your views on everything. Many girls we're "Goth" and scene they wore black dresses with red bows. I thought they were ugly and stupid, but then after listening to ... read more

Self scarred hearts

From the first time I saw scarification on BME I really liked this type of modification. I have always liked the look and feel of scars, I think they can be very beautiful. However I didn't know if I would ever get any done personally and was very scared about the prospect of someone cutting me. After considering it for a while I decided I wanted to do scarification on myself. I would be much more comfortable cutting myself than having someone else do it because I have self harmed for quite a few years so I feel I know ... read more

Musings After My Scarification

I was scarred by Brian Decker on October 31, 2009 during his visit to Austin, Texas. My scarification is of a blue jay. It is placed on the left side of my torso; it is approximately eight by four inches; and it is incredibly detailed. The process lasted just over four hours. Decker used cutting, skin removal, and shading techniques. As time progresses and I surpass the five week mark of being scarred, I keep reflecting on all the things I failed to realize before Brian Decker removed some of my skin... As far as cleaning: I washed my scar ... read more

My Heart

It was a warm summer afternoon in central Maine, and my apartment was the temperature of the sun. My landlord is a cheap fuck, so air conditioners are not allowed in the building. As I sat on my luxurious futon, I looked to my right and saw the most beautiful creature ever created. She has jet black hair, her eyes are so brown that it is impossible to distinguish where the pupil ends and the iris begins. As I look at her, all I can think of is how much I want to spend every waking second with her. She ... read more
