Blended scars

Last week Sean posted a fantastic collaborative scarification piece by Christiano Aeilli and Lewis Dodd.  Going back through the galleries another scar by Christiano alone caught my eye.

I’ve been seeing a lot of artists blend together cutting and branding in their scarification pieces, but most of the time the branding is used as a form of shading.  Here Christiano is using the branding to create a pattern in the scar that will heal differently than the cutting portion, ideally leaving the final scar with a nice degree of contrast between the two sections.  Keep an eye on Christiano’s gallery, and hopefully we’ll see a follow-up of this piece.
