This scarification piece by Ighlif got me thinking that this is a clever reference to a song, or I’m just reading too much into the imagery.
In either case, the fresh cutting combined with the text underneath was really eye-catching. I’m always curious as to how a scar will turn out, but in this case I am doubly so, as the contrast between the two stands out so well. Given how well the last scar of Ighlif’s we featured turned out, I think the recipient is in for a beautiful looking scar.
