The Friday Follow-up

Since I started this weekly column last year I’ve seen hundreds of scarification pieces, all in various stages of completion.  I can honestly say that each and every scar I’ve seen is unique not only in terms of the artist behind the scar, but also in how the person heals afterwards.  Which brings us to this week’s scar.  Two years ago Anders cut this rose design into a client’s side.

In the two years since it was cut this scar has transformed into something incredible, which if you want to see, you’ll have to keep reading.

I honestly can’t say I’ve ever seen a scar heal up in this way before.  Normally scars that are raised like this are pink, while pale scars are often faded.  Not so here, where the scar is both raised and the exact same skin tone as the flesh around it.

Anders sent in quite a few healed scars in the past week, including a few like this one that are over two years old.   Check them out in his portfolio gallery.

If you’re an artist and you don’t have your own portfolio gallery yet, simply send an e-mail to [email protected] and we’ll get you set up with one.  A couple people asked me if there is a fee to get a gallery, and I can tell you right now that there is no fees involved.  Simply send off a request and specify whether you’re a tattoo artist, scarification artist, piercer, studio, or suspension crew.

  1. wow, i love scars like this, scars that are the same skin tone but are either raised or sunk in, looks great

  2. confused- don’t all scars eventually return to the rest of the skin’s color?

  3. @Sarah: Nope. It all depends on how the person heals, as well as what was done to the scar during the healing process.
