An exploration of Branding, Scarification, Cuttings, Removals & Mutilations.

Body modification is not really so strange within a culture where identity is often expressed through appearance—in mainstream society includes fashion consumption, cosmetic surgery, and botox. This is about intentional permanent or semi-permanent alterations of the living body for ritual, folk medicine, aesthetics, or corporal punishment. This class will cover that broad spectrum of why people do it and the various techniques on how to perform such an alteration.

All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, religions are welcome and celebrated.
