Scarification - December 9, 2007

This post is definitely not for the queasy.

I’ve kinda always wanted a tattoo, but not really. First off, I’m not entirely sure what I would want on my body for the rest of my life. Secondly, tattoos look great at first, but then they fade and loose their brilliance. Hmmmm, what’s a boy to do? Scarification? My god, yes! (totally still not for me, but I will continue to write about it)

Scarification has served as a right of passage for men and women for thousands of years. From the tribes of New Guinea and New Zealand to the streets of Manhattan, and every individual has their reasons for cutting into their skin.
