My first branding @ LPC

rst branding @ LPC My first branding Jonathan Tullett A few years ago I decided to get into the body art scene, much to the horror of my friends and family, and got my nipple pierced. I did this without having done much research into the subject and I since discovered that it was not a competent piercing and so removed it and allowed it to heal up completely. A few more piercings came and went (nose, ears, tongue navel, nipple, and my favourite of all the 4mm Prince Albert,) and I did some research in to other forms of ... read more

ritual scarification of my astral self

I needed it. I needed it more than I could ever explain to anyone. There was so much I needed to release, to get out of my body. There was even more that I needed to remember. That I needed to embrace again. The night went slowly, as we prepared. I had the design. I have had the design long before I realized what it meant. A friend took my thoughts and put them onto my flesh. It was beautiful. I had never seen it on my flesh before, but I knew that it had to be there from that ... read more

Self-Cutting Experience

As an artist, I have always been interested in anything concerning art. I enjoy not only drawing what I see, but, more importantly, creating things....looking to my imagination to guide me in what I do, in all aspects of my life. But, for many years, I have been searching for new ways to express myself through my art in new, different, and unusual ways....and that's when I discovered the wonderful world of Body Modification. Last year, a friend of mine introduced me to a new world through body modification....she was 18, and had already had her ears pierced in several ... read more

A Cutting

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/scar/971116/sss.html"> 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 ... read more

Self Branding Experience

First off, I'd like to declare that I don't endorse, nor do I encourage self-branding. It's probably much safer and much more sanitary to have a brand done professionally. The reason I chose to do my brand myself is just because of my nature. I have this thing where I feel uncomfortable having it done by someone else. (All 4 of my piercings were done by myself using a sewing needle and the mirror.) I have been interested in body modification since I was about 10 or 12 years old. I always wanted to get my ears pierced like the ... read more

My First (as of yet) personal branding experience

For a couple of months or so I had been planning to create a zigzag pattern around my left bicep (I am right handed and since I was planning on doing the brand myself it was logical to choose the left arm) and I had pre-made the brand out of some unknown metal that I worked into a double V shape (VV) . I knew of a few people who had branded themselves with a coat hanger, but these brands appeared very spread out and they had not retained the desired form, so I assumed all that was necessary was ... read more

My self-branding

When I was just a child, I was diagnosed with cancer. Well, surgery left me with an extremely interesting scar. The cancer is gone (remission for 20 years! :o) ) but the scar still remains. The scar itself starts between my shoulder blades and winds around my side ending right over my heart. I spent years trying to hide this scar.. in locker rooms, at slumber parties, swimming. If seen, the scar attracted curious stares and often looks of pity... and I still can't decide which was worse. As I grew the scar grew also.. and, so did my self-confidence ... read more

a homemade branding

When I saw someone with a branding of a Celtic cross on his back last summer (1996), I fell in love with it. The whole idea of having three dimensional body art turned me on. I was trying to figure out what I wanted to be burned into me for the longest time, I wanted it to be meaningful, so I chose the rune, perth or peorth. But the problem was, I didn't know how to go about doing this. I called most of the tattoo shops around, and none of them has done a branding before or would attempt ... read more

My scarification experience....

Let me start out by saying that I am very young, as far as most of the extreme body art community is concerned. I'm 19, and I've been into body art for about 4 years now. I did my first navel piercing when I was 15, did my septum at 16, and went from there. I discovered early on that I enjoyed the action of being pierced, and having a trophy of that experience. I then began to look for different sensations. I got my first tattoo at 18. In September of 96, I met Mikel when I started working ... read more

joshua's decision

My personal decison to be branded and tattooed, as a Jew January 19, 1996 by joshua Well, in addition to my opinions about burial and body modification, I suppose I should explain my personal interest in this discussion. I have multiple body modifications, including piercings, several tattoos and two multiple strike brands. Some of these have nothing in particular to do with my Judaism, but three of them do. On May 1st, 1995, Raelyn Gallina performed two brands on me. One is an armband of alternating chevrons and dots. The other is a simple, 6 strike brand, consisting of 6 ... read more
