As we continue with today’s scarstravaganza, we’ve got something by a new artist. This ram scarification is only the 4th one that Chris Shelafoe has ever done. It’s located on the back of a calf, and I’m guessing it’s on someone small as you can see the scale of it next to his thumb. I’m curious to see how this one heals up as there was a lot of skin peeled off in parts, plus some interesting cuts in the face of the ram. It also looks to be pretty even which is difficult to accomplish as a new artist in a removal that big. The pools of blood are giving it a false sense of depth in spots and should be overlooked.
Chris works at Rendezvous Tattoo & Body Piercing in Marquette, MI.
Just a quick update: A couple of artists have mentioned that this cutting may be too deep in places. While I’m sure it will heal, they’ve asked me to relay the message that a cutting which removes large sections should be done by artists when they have a bit more experience.
