Gillian’s DIY Knuckle Brands

My friend Gillian did a DIY brand on herself about a week ago. She says it was for no particular reason (which I’d say is unusual for a DIY brand — they tend to be ritualistic and full of meaning), but is quite happy with how it turned out (I like it as well). The brands are quite light — she’s been picking off the blisters/scabs, so it’ll probably heal akin to a shallow skin removal, leaving faint circular scars on each finger.

  1. I’d love to see how these brands look once they’re healed.

    Very subtle. I really like them.

    I’m still thinking about doing some DIY branding on the side of my hands sometime. Seeing this has got me thinking about it again!

    Nice work…and Merry Christmas to all…

  2. These are real nice. Pretty girl too!

    I’ve a couple of finger brands done with basically hard wire and a lighter a while back, and they scar up pretty nicely, so these should look great.

    Hurt/itch like a bastard though.

    Happy Holidays Modblog revival!

  3. I’m really a fan of these brands! They look amazing, already, and I’m sure they’ll look glorious when they’re healed!
    I recently did a DIY branding on the side of my right hand using a lighter and hard wire and it scarred pretty well! Great methods for great mods :-)

  4. i agree with shiza, they are nice and simple, but very effective.
    And she’s cute so I guess that adds to it.

  5. hey dudes and ladies, i would just like to point out that as these heal i’ll be posting new pictures on IAM via my mod-tracker/diary entries, so if you’re interested in the healing keep your eyes peeled.

  6. Awesome brands, I really like how simple they are.

    However, I am also in love with her scarf! Houndstooth ftw!
