Cell Popping

Definition - What does Cell Popping mean?

Cell popping is a form of body modification where a red hot needle or poker is used on the skin, which leaves a series of red dots. The practice is also referred to as micro-branding.

Kinkly explains Cell Popping

Cell popping can be used as a form of pain play because the hot needle causes pain. It might also be used in Dom/sub relationships where the dominant uses the method to brand his or her submissive. The practice is referred to as a method of temporary body modification. The needle that is used is small and the shallow depth that it is inserted mean that the body can heal these wounds relatively easily.
