21 Scar Innovations

From Human Branding to Cosmetic Transformations

— January 4, 2010 — Unique
There have been many scar innovations featured on Trend Hunter. Whether it is a helpful service that helps you heal or hide your unsightly scars or a red hot poker pierced into skin to create artistic designs, many people have suffered and embraced the bumps and bruises of life.

Check out this cluster for some really bizarre scar innovations.

Implications - Many people are attracted to bizarre things because they are out of the ordinary and can provide shock. Brands that use scarring in their advertisements, as seen in the Humans are Cows, not only make people think, but grab their attention in a way that other ads can’t. The more innovative and unusual an advertisement, the more buzz it is likely to create.
