    Exclamation Branding?

    So, I branded myself... It was a very spur of the moment thing with no real reasoning or thinking involved, and I didn't do any real research beforehand, which I know was completely idiotic. It was a very shallow burn using a piece of shaped wire; Most of the skin went white and hard, and a little bit went brown. I peeled the dead skin off otherwise it wouldn't have scabbed at all. So, what I'm trying to find out now, a little late I'll admit, is the best way to ensure a scar. I've heard of people using lemon juice, or is that only for cutting as opposed to branding? Oh, and the brand is also in an idiotic place, on the sole of my foot, on the arch.

    Please don't leave negative responses, I know full well it was a damn stupid thing to do, especially having done barely any research beforehand. My only defense is, I barely even realized what I was doing until it was done. I know chances are I will be stuck with a scar anyway, but since its done now I feel like I might as well try and make the best of it and try for the most decorative scar I can.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong category, I couldn't find anything scarification specific. Any responses would be very much appreciated. xx

    Imo, I don't know if I would be encouraging scarring on the sole of my foot. I would worry about it becoming uncomfortable to walk on? I don't know, I am purely voicing thoughts Have you got a picture?

    I know, it was one of the silliest places I could have done it, I'll see if I can upload a picture now. It isn't too bad to walk on cause being on the arch of my foot it doesn't really touch the floor, it just feels a little odd when my foot moves

    Yeah that works. I'm not really sure what to say, I'm just thinking out loud. Wait until someone more experienced with branding comes along I'm just thinking about pressure on raised scars, like how well it would work, would it become irritated kinda thing!


    Edit: Just did a search and found this thread, there are some others if you search for branding too

    *Frowns slightly* That's odd, I seem to be having trouble with links lately... I don't have the original photo anymore, but here's one I took a minute ago after having walked maybe five miles on it... It's pretty pissed off and swollen (surprisingly.) Also, please ignore how weird my foot looks, it's a combination of bad angle and bad lighting haha :L

    Me too I'm just gonna call it an experiment, and if it goes horribly wrong I'll put it down to experience and say it's a lesson learned If it does go wrong, well, at least it's on the bottom of my foot, so it's not a big deal. Haha I think I picked a combination of least visible but most irritating :L
