Scarification Has A Deep History, but Modern Artists Are Bringing It Back

Scarification is a procedure of making your skin covered with patterns, symbols, and images (like tattoos) by leaving scars on it using various technics such as burning, cutting, and scratching.

As was already mentioned scarification is similar to tattooing and was originated by West African tribes as marks to show a person’s identity such as religion, social status, beliefs, and so on.

The scarification process includes damaging skin tissue. While healing damaged skin gets lighter than the general skin tone and that is how the picture appears on your body.

Later scarification became banned by many governments as a cruel way to show a person’s identity and was condemned.

Scarification began its new history in the 20th century when punk and other cultural minorities started using it to highlight their identity and beliefs. For them, this type of body modification sends the message that they don’t want to fit into society in the ordinary sense.

To get a good-looking scare masters to use various instruments such as scalpels or blades. The cut is not really deep. Usually, they are as deep as ordinary tattoos.

Before getting scarified….

First of all, you should remember that the scar will not remain as light as it is at the beginning forever: the skin is getting darker with time. Also, keep it in mind depending on the procedure method and your skin type your scar might heal flat or raised.

The process of getting and having a scar is generally the same as with tattoos. So look for an experienced master whom you trusted and who will explain to you what are the right ways to heal your scar and not get an infection.

Scar healing

The most important thing is keeping your scar clean!!! You do not want any blood infections we sure. Also, wash your hands before touching your scar and try to wash and care about your scar with medicaments that your master advised you to. Buy all the essential products at the official drugstores.

Also, be extremely caring of skin not to cut it to make your healing skin scratched. It might change the correct pattern on your skin as well as produce pain.

50 & Beyond Health & Wellbeing Discovery Session

Join me for a comprehensive look into what it will take to stay physically and mentally strong as you move through the second half of your life.

We all want to age without the fear of suffering from a chronic illness and still have the energy and strength to live the life we want.

The number one reason people fail to stay healthy as they age is the inability to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for health transformation.

Through working with 1000's of clients over the last 20 years, I have been able to develop a coaching program that not only looks at nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management but also how to develop the right mindset needed to succeed.

Having a plan is not as important as having the ability to implement it.

If you are someone who struggles to follow healthy habits consistently. Or you are someone who wants to learn more about what they need to do personally to avoid chronic illness. Then my 30-minute Discovery Session is ideal for you.

From the 30 minutes we spend together, we will go through in specific detail what it is you can do today when it comes to what to eat, how to get the most from exercise, how to develop a powerful sleep routine and how to build a healthy environment needed to live a healthy life.

And with over 20 years of coaching experience in the health & wellness industry, I have witnessed firsthand what it takes to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for lasting change.

Expect to hear things that will challenge what you have always been told about nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. As someone who is over 50 and is stronger, fitter and healthier than I was in my 20s, 30s, & 40s, I am well-placed to know what works and doesn't as we move through this period of our lives.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you.
