I like the little heart dotting the ‘i’ in “scarificators”. Makes me feel like home.
Ditto. But I wonder, are scarificators for scaring or scarring?
Scarring would be more practical, since scaring would come with that. Two for the price of one.
Definitely scarring. There are three pictures of a scarificator here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloodletting.
To be real, the opening link being “start the bloodletting” was a little disturbing.
Guess this really isn’t doing anything to disabuse Scip of his whole ‘people are so horrible’ thing, eh?
Just so people don’t have to be creeped out more than necessary, scarification is the process of having a either a design cut into a person’s skin to produce a thin-lined design, or having a larger patch of skin removed completely to have a much broader “scar tattoo”. It’s horrifying to me. Kind of like a reverse tattoo, with no ink, and the removal of your flesh.
It’s considered a mark of strength to have it done without an anesthesia.
