Consider It A Momento: Struck By Lightning Scar

March 5, 2012


This is the scar a man received on his arm after being struck by lightning. It's a Lichtenberg Figure, or the pattern made from an electrical discharge. As you can see, it's kinda flowery. Still beats the shit out of any tribal tat though.

How About That of the Day []

Thanks to Marie, who agrees the best scars are the ones you get trying to jam your arm up in a vending machine after your snack gets stuck. Oh this one? Cooler Ranch Doritos.

    HA! Before I decided to write 'He's going to get so much lay thanks to that scar and story' I read some of the comments. This is what I found; "
    He's a redhead, isn't he. Look at those freckles! AND struck by lightening AND cool scar? I'm in love. Forward him my contact info. "

    Smirking about being right. 

  • That is awesome- maybe I could get just a 'little' struck by lightning...

    Did he remember to say "Shazam" before getting hit...  wasted  opportunity..

  • That is the coolest scar I have ever seen, its amazing

    By momento, you meant memento, yes GW?  Hugs anyway.  Also, the scar resembles the ice crystal patterns that form on a window when it freezes really fast

    Anyone else think it looks a lot like a cedar branch?

  • He's a redhead, isn't he. Look at those freckles! AND struck by lightening AND cool scar? I'm in love. Forward him my contact info.

  • That is a skin condition called keratosis pilaris.

  • No it isn't. They're definitely freckles. Keratosis pilaris are bumps which look more like a rash. I should know, I have both! (plus look at his arm hair... defo ginger.)

    looks like our realm failed to rid another ginger

    I resent that remark, GW. Tribal tats are pretty fucking awesome. I mean the real kind. Not the white trash crap that I'm sure you see all the time in your whack-ass hood.

    cool to you, funny to others... geek democracy!!!!

    well if there were ever a reason for getting some henna down your right arm.... it's going to be hard arguing against that

  • JimmyThr

     Why isn't he out there stopping crime, the bastard...

  • Mr. Roboto

    He earned that one.  Freaking awesome.

    It's indeed possible since the similar patterns have been made with man-made lightning and some acrylic blocks (Google It). Mother Nature is one sweet tattoo artist.

  • If you're going to have a scar you may as well get an attractive one. And that is one cool looking scar. Don't think I'd want to get struck by lightening though.

  • In reference to @Weapon_Ozma:disqus 's comment I'd definitely take a bolt of lightning over a hit of 'AVADA KEDAVRA' any day…

    Still lightnigh is a little much to weather for fashion, and we agree with you. I guess that's why once again we've shared your comments on the Pewlpit, as the lead to a story.
