If burning or cutting human skin makes you at all squeamish, we won't blame you for skipping this Weekly Countdown. However, even if the thought of the pain involved in scarification causes you to feel lightheaded or queasy, you have to admit that it's pretty fascinating at the same time, and you may not be able to look away! So, if you're still with us, here's some of the wildest scarification designs:
Awww…OW!…I mean awwww….no, no…OW!! So cute…SO PAINFUL! How does one react to a cute little kitten design that's been carved into human flesh? If the bearer of this design was looking to create a work of body art that would elicit a mixed reaction, well, mission epically accomplished!
The detail in this design is pretty incredible, and again takes something soft and fluffy, and contrasts it with the painful process of it's creation.
Dedication to one's faith? Yeah, this guy's definitely got that going on, though if his body's a temple, he's obviously not afraid to take on extensive renovations.
The Yakuza's got nothing on this woman when it comes to Japanese-style tattoo and pain tolerance! The artists even manages to get some impressive shading going on, which lands this full-back bamboo at number two!
Angels have to suffer a lot to earn their wings, and this guy wins our countdown by going the extra mile to get his. The implication of pain and suffering leading to salvation and freedom is noted, and earns our winged friend top honors this week!
