    Of tattoos and brands

    I've been tinkering around with brandings for a while. They tend to be a little more subtle than tats. They also seem to be less mainstream than tats.

    Any thoughts?

    The branding's not as bad as the gelding.

    Depends what you get but the scarring process may not go as plan and your piece will get ruined.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    It really, really, really stinks when you brand cows. Make sure you have good ventilation.

    looks like I lost a fight with a rabid badger. A constant source of embarrassment,
    I need to make sure all of my wardrobe stuff cover it up all the time.

    Just put a subtle message on some clothing so that when the facts and/or your tastes eventually stop being represented by a body inking/scarring/mutilation it is much easier to amend the message for your adoring fans.

    If it's a simple design, find a good artist and go for it. You can find a ton more info at www.bmezine.com (NSFW).

    I would not do either of these things to my body. My fiancee is planning the half mdot tatoo for her foot once she does a half IM, and fill it in when she finishes a full.

    It stinks even worse when you burn people. I spent some time working in a cardiothoracic O.R., and the docs use an electrocauterization pen to sizzle shut all the little bleeder capillaries in the skin and fat when they open up somebody's chest. I will never forget that smell.

    Word has it that rubber-band neutering is going to be the next big trend.

    Hey - now that you mention it - I know that too.

    I had a mole removed & it wouldn't stop bleeding so she did the electrocauterization. It didn't hurt, but kinda grossed me out that I could smell the burning & see the smoke....

    Yeah, you didn't get the memo?

    It's just something a little different. Just as permanent as a tat but different than one.

    I'll take a pic of my experiments, just for you.

    I was already frozen - so I'm not sure I'd notice. It was quick & it worked - I likes my blood in me...

    I got a circle brand on my upper arm when I was 17 or so. 41 now, and still love it. Better than my tattoo. Sometimes I think of getting another on my other arm. Celtic cross, or something along those lines. It is very subtle.

    Scars from actual living are so much cooler than any of this premeditated dermal modification.

    The front edges of my shins are serrated from years of skateboarding. Knees are covered with scar tissue. It's just so dang hard to get scarred up on the upper arms!
