The Friday Follow-up

So, I just realized now that today is Friday.  This week went by much quicker than I realized.  Of course, Friday means a scarification follow-up, so that’s what I have for you right now.  I think this is probably one of the most beautifully healed scars I’ve seen since I started doing the follow-ups over a year ago.  And of course, the scar was done by none other than John Joyce.

Here’s how the scar looked back in May when it was fresh..

And here’s how it looks today..

Honestly, if I hadn’t seen the scar when it was fresh, I would have just assumed this was a white ink tattoo.  Fantastic work John.

Octopus!

Now this is awesome.  John Joyce sent this is in a couple of days ago and I haven’t been able to stop looking at it since.  But that could be just because I’m a Lovecraft fan, so anything resembling C’thulhu catches my eye.

Now John asked me to pass on a message to the ModBlog readers.  The Philly convention is only a couple of months away and he does have some spots available for scar work, so if you’ve ever wanted to get a scar done by John, now is your chance.  You can get in touch with him through IAM, or at his studio, Scarab Body Arts in Syracuse, NY

The Friday Follow-up

It’s Black Friday which means you’re either out brawling in store over the best deal on overpriced electronics, or you’re curled up at home nursing your food hangover.  In either case, it is still Friday which means it’s time for another scarification follow-up.

This week we’re looking at another scar by John Joyce.  Now there are two fresh pictures as the cutting was done in multiple sessions, which means you’ll get a chance to see how the initial cutting healed up in the time between the two sessions.

The Friday Follow-up

This week the Friday Follow-up is taking a look back at a scar that was ModBlogged back in August.   Gabor’s OM scarification piece had a few people confused as to where exactly it was located on the body, but the healed pictures today clearly show the scar around the navel.  Before we get to the healed picture, lets check out the fresh cutting.
