First it starts with a little bit of flesh..
The next step is to take a bit more..
And so on..
Alright, so here’s the fun part. The 2 horns were done over 2 consecutive days. The day before the first scar, he had two tattoos done on his upper arms. The next day he came in for blackwork tattoos on the rest of his arms. Following that, more scar work, over top of the blackwork, and finally some chest tattoos. I honestly can’t even imagine what that much work done in a small period of time would feel like.
You can see the whole process in the skin removal scarification gallery. The scarification was done by Iñaki Garduño from Xibalba Body Art in Mexico City.
