  1. I don’t even know where to begin with the risks of branding. So many things can go wrong there. I mean, those are third-degree burns. Are you asking because you want to be on the receiving end of branding, or you want to brand someone? Either way, I strongly recommend you consult someone who knows a lot about it and to be very, very careful.

  2. Infection is the primary concern here. The whole purpose of branding is to cause some level of tissue damage, so you don’t have to worry about that, in fact, most branders recommend applying some sort of irritant to distress the skin and the tissue even more and produce a more pronounced scar. However, this is tricky since irritating the fresh wound can be extremely dangerous. You want to hurt the tissue but at the same time you want to protect it from infection, which can be quite serious and even lead to gangrene or widespread (systemic ) infection or sepsis. Metal poisoning and severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) are also a concern. Please be careful with branding and please only do it under close supervision of someone who knows exactly what they’re doing.
