I’m looking into getting a small skin removal piece done seeing how it’s going to be my first, and I was looking on many sites about chemical irritant aftercare, I seen that Toasted Sesame oil is a very good one to use, I got a bottle of 100% sesame oil one accident and wondered if it would do the same? Or better yet if you could suggest more of a variety of chemical irritants? Thank you!
Looking forward to the answers! ^_^
It all depends on exactly what end result you want to have of the piece, usually skin removals will scar pretty good on their own without any irritants.
I personally have used a number of different aftercare methods, from lemon juice to chunky peanut butter, at the end of the day I believe it all depends on HOW the piece is done (just like a tattoo).
You can also aggravate the piece after it is healed with a soft (new!) toothbrush to raise some parts that are lower than others too.
Your best bet is to take the opinion of your artist and do what they say.

I am planning to go forward with skin stripping, meaning that all skin from my cock shaft will be removed/skinned.
I have seen some articles about that, and noticed that in some cases guys have lost even 50% of the lenght from their cock.
Is there something that could be done during the healing process to avoid this? A small reduce on lenght is not bad, but for example 50% of it feels too much.
Loosing 50% of thickness would still be ok
In most cases this procedure is done as a re-circumcision procedure which, in effect, shortens the penis by packing the inner penis “meat” into less outer skin. Often this is done to make erections painful and/or impossible. If you removed the skin without suturing the remaining skin back to itself, you would prevent most of this shortening. Keep in mind though that healing such a flesh removal could generate a good deal of scar tissue, which could tighten up and cause the same side effects as the re-circ. Also, removing this much flesh from your penis without any form of wound closure would put you at a high risk for infection.
PS: If I knew your reasoning for wanting this specific procedure I would be better suited to help point you in the right direction.

Let’s start off with one thing: I adore BMEzine. Wonderful stuff! You guys are an inspiration to many.
I’ve been thinking for more than 2 years now, and I know I want to get some cutting/peeling work done. I intend it to be a gear design over my heart, about 3″ in diameter. The design I’ve presented to my local shop is what I’d like to use (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/1557798/ - the file upload failed) and I’d like that design to be cut away completely, with all the black area peeled away and left skinless, down to the tissue underneath.
My goal is to create a deep, recessed ‘cookie cutter’ scar with as little keloiding as possible. However, the shops I have gone to in the area either won’t do scarification or refuse to cut so deeply. I’ve prepared for infection and have quite a bit of medical antibiotics (Dicloxacillin) stockpiled. I can understand a liability on their part, but I find it difficult to believe that this is really such a dangerous job.
Further, the only person I’ve found who was willing to do the job for me is asking to do it in stages, first cutting the outline and then taking the skin away in two visits. I suspect this is because he’s asking me for $200 a visit. Am I being scalped? (Pun intended)
It’s not a case of how deep you go but what aftercare you choose to undertake. As for a deep, recessed end product - there is little chance of that happening with removal, particularly in the area you have suggested. The chest is a high motion area and is by nature prone to raising. The nature of scarification is somewhat organic and very unique to the individual, which for most is its appeal. As practitioners, we can take into account what the client wants with regards to the end product and tailor the aftercare in such a way as to encourage this but ultimately you have to be aware that it may not turn out as you expect. Going deep in the chest area will most likely produce raised and possible keloid scarring and with that you may lose some of the sharp edges. The risk with keloid formation is that it can be painful and in some cases debilitating (as the scar contracts and pulls taught surrounding tissue).
As for technique, I personally see no reason why the outline should be done first and the removal later - this, for me, would make the job more difficult.
With regards to what you are ultimately aiming for, think long and hard and maybe do a little more research before commiting yourself to this.

I’m considering having my navel removed but as it’s a major mod I want some advice. I have a sort of inny-outy belly button meaning it sticks out a little and then folds back in, the way the two inner pieces of skin rub together it leaves raw skin which gets infected. So this modification is for both practical and aesthetic. I wondered if anyone here had had their navel removed, how they had it done, where, and how much it costs.
I’d strongly advise you to speak to a plastic surgeon, since you’re basically asking for a mini-abdominoplasty. Any surgery to the abdominal wall like that is pretty significant and not something I would personally trust a cutter to do, especially since actual, medically-trained and recognised surgeons do thing like that all the time. If you live anywhere near any major metropolitan area in the world, you should be able to find a plastic surgeon who could easily do this for you, but the price will vary and you’ll want to have a consultation with the doctor to explain what you’re after and get their input on the matter. And good luck!

i’m sure that somewhere in the annals of QOD this question has been asked but here goes– i’ve been seriously considering scarification, most likely in the way of flesh removal and was wondering if any of you kind folk would know of anyone in the central florida area (tampa, orlando.. hell, st. pete, ft. myers, WHATEVER) that you would highly recommend for such things and if so.. do these particular people specialize in any certain ’style’ of art? i’ve got things in mind but i’m open to working it around a bit as what i’m thinking of is at the ‘crude’ stage, at best, in development.
One minor flaw with publicly stating an artists name here is the fact that in Florida, at least from what I gathered from fellow piercers, it is illegal for shops to have scalpels and dermal/biopsy punches. Because of this artists are not going to want to publicly advertise that they offer said procedures, due to liability reasons.
My suggestion to you is to research the various scarification artists on BMEzine, you can also check out ScarWars.Net, and perhaps get into contact with said artists. As you might have to find out if an artist is willing to do guest spots in that area of the country, or you might need to pay a visit to one of the said artists in their area or to a nearby area.
To answer your question about specializing in a certain “style” I’m sure many artists have their preference to what they like doing. Some prefer geometric patterns, others ancient South American patterns, the list goes on. The best option for you though is to find the artist who has done previous work that is similar to the piece that you want.
The key thing with finding a scarification artist is much like finding a qualified tattoo artist or body piercer. You want to make sure they have an established portfolio of fresh (clean though, not a bloody mess) as well as healed shots, don’t just fall for the ploy of an unethical artist who will talk you into doing something without providing proof of their skills,etc.
But since scalpels and biopsy punches are suppose to be illegal to use in Florida, there are not many artists publicly advertising their work, from that specific state.
