I got a brand!(not for the squeamish)-long

So I went to St .Louis last Saturday to get branded.

First, a transfer was put on my skin with the design. 7/16 sheet metal pieces were custom made as pre-arranged.

The brander, Ms. Cynthia who has 12 years experience did the deed.

She held the metal with vice grips, bracing herself on the table or on my back(I was lying face down) & took a couple of practice swings. Her assistant then heated the metal with a blowtorch to 2200 degrees F. Her eyes never left me for fear of losing placement, & her assistant told her when the metal was red hot & said "ready".

The first strike was the worst, simply because I had no idea of what exactly the pain would feel like. By the time my brain registered the pain, it was over.It makes a sizzling sound, like putting a steak on a hot grill,& the smell is similar. The edges are charred & crispy because it's a 3rd degree burn.(not painful)The surrounding area is going to blister, because it's a 2nd degree burn(painful)

My design took a total of 9 strikes. The circles in the middle were made by putting 1 inch incense pieces upright & letting them burn down. That freaked my husband out, because he was at eye level & could see it melt down & disappear under my skin.
This was the most painful, since they took a while to burn down, & did not burn simultaneously.

I had an audience of about 30 people, as this was a branding seminar lecture & I was the model. People took turns blowing on the incense to make it burn faster.

Now it has to be scrubbed several times a day with peroxide to aid scarring, & it will take a whole year to see the final result.

A great experience all told.

hmmmm. to each his own, I would be interested in seeing what it would look like in a year, seems like alot of work and pain compared to a tat, but then again, not many will have one.

Very cool Dani!

When you mentioned this, I was very interested to see the results and hear the story. I've been thinking about this myself, but I can't think of anything I'd want to brand myself with...which clearly means I'm simply not ready.

My future tattoo on the other hand, I have planned out...I'm just waiting for the right time and the right artist to pull it off.

Very cool Dani. I hope the experience was all you had hoped it was. It looks like you have the brand on your buttocks. And if I am right and Mandy gets to see it, I want to see it too. Rep for sharing with all of us.

It is on my left shoulder, it was taken at an angle. There is intentionally a small space between the strikes to allow for expansion of the scar.

Yeah with a coat hanger held over the stove.I've had several patients over the years with this. It requires multiple strikes in the same spot, whereas mine was only once. It has to go the depth of a dime to be 3rd degree.

Branding ain't shit. you haven't lived unless you've been torn open by the crack end of a whip.

Looks good, Dani, you kinky, kinky girl.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Hmmm when did Humans become cattle and need to be branded.

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Well, time for a short history lesson.
Branding was started in Africa,as an adornment &symbol of masculinity, then became ritualistic for African women entering puberty. They were branded on their stomachs, because the scarred bumps intensified during pregnancy & felt good to rub.

Branding did not come to Europe until the 1800's where it was used to mark criminals & prostitutes.

African slaves in the US were branded infrequently & only to identify chronic runaways.

That's enough for now.

Okay and and how does this apply to you My scars and tat are mile stone events in my life. The tat, everyone on my team has one...the scared heart, meaningful to the 12 of us and what we endured. The knife wound, is a long stupid story, next time I'm bringing a gun, other scars are "learning events". How did branding, especially with the short history lesson above, play into your life?? You are not African, were you a criminal or prostitute?? Were you a slave with a chronic runaway problem

Okay...I'm off to the Drunk Thread.....Peace
