An idea... [Dec. 12th, 2006|08:45 am]
Slytherin Skin


Hey everyone, I've decided that I am going to write an essay or just collect information on body modification in the wizarding world. So far I have:

  • Tattoos - Dark Mark **Could be branding
  • Tattoos - Prisoner Tats
  • Tattoos - Ron's pygmy puff
  • Tattoos - Harry's Hippogriff/Hungarian Horntail
  • Tattoos - Possibility of moving tattoos (as seen in the fic 'After the End')
  • Cutting - "I must not tell lies" (more considering what others do when they wish to cut themselves in a decorative pattern, not forced harm)
  • Other - Hermione's teeth shrinking
  • Other - Talk about DD taking away Harry's scar (and scars in general - maybe Mad Eye in there somehow)
  • Other - Tonks (yes, a whole category for her)
  • Mods that may be possible - Bone regrowth (akin to horns/implants)

    Anyway, if you having anything to suggest or any links to send, please do so. :o)

    Isn't the original Dark Mark more like burning?
    But it sounds great, I'd like to

    It could be like a brand, I never really thought of that. It would explain why it would bother the Death Eaters - maybe it would feel like being branded all over again (I'm thinking electrocautery branding, not the typical cow type of branding, lol).

    Yay, so I'm going to add that into my list of things to find info on.

    I thought it was a branding, because it vanishes.
    When it's made it may be black and like a wound, but then it vanishes...
    ...so maybe it's nothing but a scar.
    Everytime the Dark Lord calls his Death Eaters, it seems like the branding is "new" again, they feel pain and you can see the black lines.

    That's my thought...
    ...I have a tattoo of it, though :D

    Wow, now I have a whole new love for branding (which is impossible, because I already loved it).
