So I am a fire hula hooper, and on new years eve when I was doing a performance, I accidentally branded myself on my stomach with a piece of metal from my hoop. The burn blistered straight away, and came out in a really clean cut shape.

The thing is that I love it, the pattern is really excellent and I would like to keep it there as best possible.

Any suggestions on how to take care of it/make sure that it scars in the shape to the best of my ability?


Scarification and branding aftercare will definitely differ between artist to artist.
Keeping the burn clean and avoiding ointments will be beneficial.
Many artists I’ve talked to seem to lean towards the “Leave it Alone” method.

  3. I had a scar on my hand which I tried to heal/make go away. I used mederma to try and heal it, and I think I used too much/used it for too long, because the scar actually started to become thicker than the rest of the skin on my hand. What was most interesting is that the scar was originally just a large patch, but is now a heart shape.

    I know that doesn’t necessarily answer the question, but it definitely goes along with it.

  4. well i believe the term you are looking for is hypertrophic scar/keloid, however i wouldn’t recommend it on the stomach because this area is intentionally bendable and a keloid might change that.

    PS: on the means to achieving such things the article in Wikipedia gives a hint how some cultures put stress on their scars to make them permanent.
