Russ Foxx did this stitching on Pretty_Lush for New Year’s — you can see it here marked out, stitched, and then finally scarred as it rejected (as intended).

  1. I always thought using surface piercings for scarification would be a good idea. I know this is’nt the same but it is basiclly, just alot cheaper than buying a god awful amount of jewelry

  2. Nice idea indeed…..I think this type of procedure will rise over the next months…I dunno why… seems to me that you have a better “control” of the design

  3. that is so adorable! it would also be really cool if she got tattoos around it to “enhance” the scars. like a cute outline or something..

    because it was done by stitching, it kind of has a rag-doll feel. i like rag dolls. they’re so cute.

  4. that’s a really really awesome idea :)
    & i love how it came out. i wonder if more artists will start using this method to scarify

  5. the idea of sewing my skin makes me a bit squeamish… but i love the results!!
    my possible next scarring method, perhaps? hehe :)

  6. I think it looks really interesting, especially since it still has that “stitched on” look.

  7. I like how it’s awesome with the stitches in, and without. I’d also like to know what material the stitching was made of.

  8. i have an anatomical heart tattooed on my arm that looks stitched & everyone always thinks it’s scarification.

    anyway, this is awesome!!

  9. #41, Agree.

    That’s incredibily beautiful.

    Oh, fuck off, too much modblog will kill me.

  10. Really well done. I don’t like most scarification (they look a touch messy), but this came out perfect.

  11. WOW! I did this to myself when I was young- around 14-15! I sewed simple shapes under my skin on the bottom of my feet! Incredible!

  12. awsome idea,i’d love to see more pictures as it heals,and to see others who have used this procedure
