Scarwars2: Thorsten

thorstenscarwarssacreddebrisAfter the success of the inaugural Scarwars in 2005, we decided to take the party to the west coast less than a year later and in February 2006 found ourselves at a private studio location in Los Angeles California continuing the concept of cutting and branding artists sharing information and collaborative scarification projects.

This photo, taken by the event’s official portrait photographer Rachel Larratt, features modification artist Thorsten Sekira.  Thorsten is wearing one of the event’s official t-shirts with a design by New Hampshire’s Nick Kelly.
