Scarification involves scratching, etching, or superficial cutting or incision, resulting in a permanent body modification, etching designs, pictures, or words into the skin. We’ve shown you some types of body modification before like scarification and stretching.
We can go way back to the glory years of the Romans and branding was used to both punish identify fugitives and criminals. In modern times, branding was adapted by body modification enthusiasts who are looking to take a step further with their body mods.
Others like Marc Pinto, a body modification artist based in Australia, use a medical equipment called a Thermal Cautery Unit. There are a few other methods of branding such as cold branding and solar branding, which is very intriguing, but seeing as body branding isn’t very common, the alternative methods are even rarer. During the procedure, the body modification artist has to wear a mask to avoid inhaling the vapour given off by the cauterization.


Skin with more melanin tend to heal with raised scars, so that’s also a factor one must consider before giving body branding a go. You may have already seen this article and video on the first experiment of a 3D printing tattoo machine.
Some only want to give branding a go, seeing as getting tattoos and piercings are already pretty mainstream.
We’re looking forward to see more documentation with this particular body modification in the future, to find out how far it can take us, the same way tattoos have seen such radical innovations in the past decades.
The principle is simple: give a design to a machine, and let it tattoo it on the skin of the customer.
Branding can be traced back to the century when slavery was considered acceptable among colonies.
Meanwhile in India, branding was used for religious purposes. Branding is also used by tribes for initiation rituals in countries like Papa New Guinea.


There are also a number of gangs and fraternities all over the world who take part in branding to mark a member within their brotherhood. But if that’s not the case, you can create a variety of designs the same way you can in scarification. This involves heating a small strip of stainless steel and pressing them to the skin repeatedly until the whole design has been covered.
While some are aiming for the raised scar hypertrophic scarring results to, some branding scars somehow flatten when they’re completely healed and turn white. Still, the legalities concerning branding with consent is currently considered a legal grey area.
