Are Human Branding and Scarification The New Tattoo?

I have touched on scarification before, but with any emerging ‘art’, things can change at great speed so an update is warranted.

With its roots as a ritual act, scarification is now routinely carried out with a massive variety of designs just like tattooing, although it is considered much more cutting edge (no pun intended) that tattooing.

The results of this body mod procedure leave raised, red images. Scarification can also be used to cover old scars; in a similar manner, branding irons can also be used.
