Strike branding is the most well known of the branding techniques. Unlike single strike cattle branding, where a design is eteched or welded into a single piece of metal, strike branding on humans usually incorporates a series of small strikes that will form your design. This technique is called multiple strike branding.

African slaves were often branded so the owners could identify them as their property, just like cattle are often branded today. A hundred years, or so, later African-American fraternities reclaimed strike branding and turned it into an empowering statement. Many frat associations still practice branding their fraternal insignia, or greek letters, into willing members as a show of dedication to each other. Since the ressurgance of piercing and tattoo in western culture in the early 80s, branding has found it's own in place modern body modification culture.

I have been strike branding friends and clients for over ten years and it is by far my favorite of all the techniques I offer.
