Scarification Theory and Practice Workshop- September
Iestyn Flye and Ron Garza will be running a workshop on scarification over the weekend of the London Tattoo Convention (30 September and 1 October). Attendees will learn basic theory and practice of scarification from these two leading practitioners in the field.
The course will cover the various elements required to create beautiful scar work, including making stencils, single line cutting, skin removal and of course safety issues.
Because of the nature of this work, the class is only open to professionals already working in a studio who have knowledge of the crucial stuff such as blood borne pathogens.
Iestyn is a prominent figure in the UK body modification world, based at Divine Canvas in London, who is also known for his work as a performance artist with the Psycho Cyborgs. Ron works out in California and is a well respected practitioner who also teaches courses on freehand piercing, scarification, and branding.
This promises to be a fascinating workshop, with participants getting the chance to cut and be cut under Ron and Iestyn’s expert supervision. One of the most interesting things about scarification is how much variation there can be in the way scars heal, depending on the individual’s skin and what effect they want to achieve. Of course, this is also one of the challenges for the artists practicing this especially interesting and beautiful form of body mod.
