Cauterization for Ritual & Decorative Marking
Presented by OneSexyKitten
What is Cauterization?
Cauterization is an ancient medical practice that is still in use today. It involves creating burns on body tissue to either close wounds, stop bleeding or to remove part of the body. Cautery can also be used to place a brand on a human, which was a practice that was also common for punishment, as decoration in certain cultures, or to mark humans as property.
In this class we will briefly review the history and practices of cauterization. This will be followed by a demonstration. Everyone in class will feel what it is like to use a cautery pen by placing a simple mark on a leather strip I will provide. If you're comfortable, you will then have an opportunity to practice your new skills with your partner. If you don't have a partner, you may bring a piece of leather with you and practice marking on the leather.
I will supply sharpies, decorative templates and some leather strips for practice. Please bring your own cautery pen or you may purchase a disposable cautery pen from me before or after class.
