Lucky BMEboys Saturday 14/15

This is an older picture — from back in May — so you can check Evildustin‘s page to see how it’s doing, but it’s healed in this picture… It was done electrically, but it harkens back to old-style Maori tattooing which was more closely related to wood carving than face painting, and left deep scars like this.

  1. Wow, that really strikes me as totally beautiful. It adds to and does not distract from his face.

  2. absolutely beautiful. this is the nicest facial skin removal I have ever seen. Thanks Shannon for posting it.

  3. I really like the way it’s created a ‘dip’ in the skin, rather than going out in a keliod. Does this type of scarring always heal like this?

  4. This is the sexiest looking facial mod I’ve ever seen ! Wow !! If only I was 10 years younger …

    clara m.

  5. Hmmm, it would be interesting to collaborate with a tattoo artist that specialized in traditional tribal and a scarification artist, to create a design to cut. Then, once it was healed, you could tattoo the incised lines.
    Does anyone really know how the Maoris got their tattoo work to look like it was carved in?

  6. Nyarlathotep, the Maori used small chisels and literally sliced into the skin.

    I’m afraid that I dislike the above comparison with traditional Maori work, though, because it was *always* pigmented. After the pattern was opened up, the moko artist tapped in the pigment with another chisel that had serrated teeth.

  7. as i said before,this is not a copy of the Maori.i repect there culture,but it is not my culture.i wanted to do some that you dont see everywhere.

  8. i know tou did mention that when you posted the first photo.but i wanted to let people this cuz it was not mention this this.any way thanks for this great site
