Scarification is not a new form of body modification. In primitive societies, members would scar their bodies to note great defeats and hunts. Among most of the body modifications that took place in primitive societies, scars were used to mark important events in one’s life, a sort of rite of passage, marriage, etc.
Today, scarification is another form of body modification to add something ‘pretty,’ mark a time, express a feeling, etc. It is not as popular as tattoos, but nonetheless, it is a body art.
With this particular body modification, scar tissue is used to imprint words, pictures, and designs upon the body. Cuts are made between 1/4″ and 3/4″ into the skin.
This is a creative and controled manner to achieve an aesthetically pleasing result.
