Tattooed Scarification Mosaic

OK, I didn’t think I was going to post anything else today but this piece is just so sweet that I had to add it. It’s on tigricula and was originally a kind of crappy tattoo. Then Brian (click on his name, he loves it when you do that), and then once it was well healed, it was touched up with tattooing by The Milkmaid (both at PURE in NYC).

It’s my personal believe that some of the high detail scarification that’s being done these days may not stand the test of time, but when you combine scarification with tattooing, you almost create an altogether new form of body art that I think we’ll see much more of in the future!

PS. Thanks to Rebekah from Modified News for the tip!

    “Then Brian Decker (click on his name, he loves it when you do that), and then once it was well healed, it was touched up with tattooing by The Milkmaid (both at PURE in NYC).”

    I think you left something out there, but that does look quite awesome.

    Oops, in my excitement at seeing this piece I cut out the fact that of course it is Brian that did the original scarification work.

    there’s a picture of the post-scarification, pre-joy moth in the modblog archives from october. joy’s work made a lot of difference.

    you could wear looser dresses, skirts that sat higher on the waist, high waisted pants, even…pretty much anything that wasnt tight right on the hips

    you might not be at the height of today’s fashion, but still….think, it’s not hard to come up with clothes that don’t rub on whatever body part

    when I get a double row of black dots from hairline to asscrack…..well, I’ll be wearing a lot of dresses
