The Friday Follow-up

Another week has come to a close, which means it’s time for another edition of The Friday Follow-up.  This week we’re going back just over 4 years to a cutting by John Joyce.  The story behind this particular piece is one of friendship.  The owner of this scar and her friend were going to be separated as one of them was moving away.  The two came into see John and get scars together.  While there is only the follow-up image on this scar, the other can be seen right here.  So while this image and the other share the symbol, this one expanded on it to include the cherry blossom.


To see how the scar looks 4 years later, keep on reading.


You can really see how the little details in the center of the blossom have stood the test of time.  Although in the process of looking at the details I did notice that her mole has gotten a little bigger, so John may want to let her know about that.  Other than that, the scar looks incredible, and it healed up really well.

Scarification artists and those of you with scarification pieces, if you’d like to be featured in an upcoming Friday Follow-up, simply upload images of your scars, both fresh and healed (separate images please).  One of the comments that is most often made whenever a fresh scar is posted is “I can’t wait to see what it looks like healed”.  So if you’ve got images of your scars to share, please do.
