How About That of the Day: A “lightning flower” is a Lichtenberg Figure — or electric discharge pattern — that occurs on the skin of lightning strike victims, most likely as a result of small capillaries bursting from the intensity of the bolt’s current.

I’ve been electrocuted before. It’s no fun at all. And I got lucky. Finger in a light socket (scorch marks I hid for a week till they grew out) because I was a stupid, curious child. And then finger on an electrical fence (felt like being punched in the gut), because I remained a stupid, curious child.
Seriously, you do not want to be electrocuted.
And yet, yet…..
I’m still a stupid, curious child, aren’t I?
(and I’m not even the tattoo type - waaaaay too fickle, but this would be fucking cool)
