Inspired by SLAYER

I was wondering for how many people the first contact they had with cutting and scarification was Slayer artwork (a la the oft-emulated cover of “Serenity in Murder” in 1995) — I’d wager that for more people than might admit it that Slayer was what “flipped the switch”. Anyway, not that it’s the first time I’ve posted a Slayer scar (remember “GOD HATES US ALL“?), but a couple from the last update got me thinking about it again.

This first one, a nape cutting, and his first time behind the blade, was gingerly cut by Jasn at Pacific Rootz in Maui, Hawaii.


On the other hand, Matias went I think a little more metal with his DIY slayer scar, choosing to cut it first with a scalpel as well, but, not satisfied with the level of damage, followed it up with a recut/burn with a red-hot knife.

    Almost as dumb as getting your partner’s name inked/cut/branded etc

  4. i once talked to someone who had a tattoo involving some john lennon song. she was like ‘yeah, i know i’ll always like him because he’s dead. he can’t put out any shitty music or do anything to make me hate him now.’
