As many of you know, we try our damnedest here on ModBlog to not just feature scarification pieces in all of their stunning freshness, but also, when possible, to show the multiform and often unpredictable ways in which such projects can heal. Up above, we’ve got part of a serpentine skin-removal piece by Rion out of Deep Roots in Seattle, Washington, and this doesn’t quite look like it was scratched in there with a kitten’s claw—that deep middle section in particular looks designed to produce a hearty scar. After the jump, we see this gentleman’s back two months into the healing process, and a hearty scar it is.
It’s a little uneven in parts, but again, this is still relatively early as far as healing is concerned, and hey, we think it’s worthy of documentation either way in the interest of keeping track of scar progression. Hopefully more updates will follow.
