Hey Sweden!

This is primarily addressed to our Swedish readers, but if you have friends in the Stockholm area, direct them to this post.

Anders Allinger is a name any reader of ModBlog should be familiar with.  His piercings and scarification pieces have been a staple on ModBlog for many years, and he’s a big BME supporter.  Now you might be asking yourself what this has to do with Stockholm, as Anders is currently working at Flesh Impressions in Australia.  Well, he’s actually packing up his family and moving to Sweden, and is looking for work.  So if you know of any shops in the Stockholm area that are looking for an experienced body modification and scarification artist send Anders an e-mail.  And be sure to check out his piercing and scarification galleries.

You don’t bleed enough for me..

Now according to Google, this phrase is from a song by Oomph! entitled “Sex hat keine Macht” (Sex has no power), which I’m assuming is a German band.  Putting the music reference aside, it is an interesting quote to use scarification as a medium, as anyone who has been scarred knows, bleeding is a part of the process.

As you’ve probably guessed by the watermark, this scar was done by Anders from Flesh Impressions in Broadbeach, Qld, Australia.  You can see more of Anders’ work in his scarification portfolio.

The Friday Follow-up

Things are back to normal this week, which means it’s time for this week’s scarification follow-up post.  Before we get to it, I just want to take a minute to thank everyone who keeps sending in their healed scar photos.  When I started this column last year there was no way I could predict how popular it would become, and there’s no way it could exist without the contributions of the many talented scarification artists.

That said, let’s get on to this week’s scar.  Back in December of last year we saw this scarification that was done over ink.  What was unique was that it wasn’t done over solid blackwork, but rather it was done over Shannan’s full color chestpiece.

It’s been almost six months now since we saw this scar by Anders, so keep on reading if you want to know how it looks today.

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.
