I saw this a long time ago on the Discovery Channel or National Geographic or something, it was some Southeastern Asian or oceanic ceremony where they take the males, take a tiny razor, and nick hundreds upon hundreds of slices into him, the scars likening themselves to crocodile scales. It's supposed to give the recipient crocodile skin or something or other. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

I'm sorta familiar with an African practice of "bead" scarring of women to create patterns, but nothing resembling croc skin.

I remember that documentary too. I can only imagine how much it'd hurt.

If I was drunk, I'd probably be willing to have it done to at least part of my body. Upper arm, perhaps.

That's the idea. The hundreds of tiny cuts mimic the look of a crocodile.

That has to be extremely painful. There is no way in hell i would let somebody cut me once with a razor. But i guess for these tribes its still a way of life.

wow so the guy is all bloody?

Well, he is getting cut with razors, so i'd imagine so....
