Scarification Information

What are cuttings?

Cuttings are made by a razor blade or other very sharp instrument onto the skin. These are usually
made in shapes of particular objects, and sometimes rubbed in with ink so that the scar of the cutting
shows up like in tattooed lined.

Pain factor: For those who have had tattoos, the pain is a focused heat, like that of fine line work. That
first, very intense focused line that starts a new tat before the endorphins kick in.

What is scarification?
Scarring is the making of marks on the body through the use of making cuts. The most famous use of
such techniques can be seen in Africa. Small cuts are made in the skin and ash is rubbed into the cuts
to make a raised bump scar. This can look really great. The unfortunate thing is that people with white
skin can't really get these types of scars because they are formed by a substance called keloid. Races
with dark skin have keloid and races with light skin do not. Often, these scars and the process is part of
a religious or social ritual. Scarring can also be the result of self-mutilation.

Red wine vinegar can be put into the cuttings, which tends to make the cutting permanent but not as
obvious as tatting.

To make cuttings permanent recutting the design often is necessary.
