Violet Wand Cell Popping is a form of violet wand branding. It is not just one of the most intense vw techniques that builds up a lot of endorphins slowly over time, but its also one of the most gratifying to have your design take shape and be visible while it lasts.

Regular heat strike cell popping involves taking a pointed needled that has been heated red-hot and touching it lightly to the surface of the skin briefly until the point of skin below it sizzles or pops. The point of the needle creates a tiny round burn on the skin. To make a design, hundreds or even thousands of these small burns are combined. It can take several hours to do and is sometimes also called microbranding or Devil’s Fire.

In violet wand cell popping, you’re using the same dot technique, but your burn is created by the electrical spark rather than heat. To do the popping, you’ll want the most intense output you can create with your wand. A cell popped vw brand can last much longer than a regular vw brand since you keep the point of burn or strike in place much longer. Most violet wand kits come with the basic tools for violet wand branding, so you might already have what you need.

Im going to add this article in several chapters, so feel free to comment/discuss as its posted. Violet wand users are not only very creative but they are also very practical and come up with tons of variations on techniques and little tips and tricks that we want to share, so share!

Negotiations: When you’re talking about your cell popping scene, you and your subject need to be aware of the time involved. Placing hundreds or even thousands of strikes into a design is going to take time, so you’ll need a good block of time. You could do it in stages, but when you get that good flow of endorphins and head space going, why would you want to stop until its finished?

Setting the scene:  Violet wand players are geeky and have a fetish for the toy as much as anything.  So you do not often see violet wand scenes that incorporate a setting such as interrogation, or making a Gor brand on your kajira’s thigh, or tentacled aliens doing science on your body, or steampunk vampires testing ‘cures’.  But they are all doable, and a violet wand lends itself to many kinds of imaginative scenes.

When branding, hold the branding tip over the same spot until the flesh sizzles a bit or ‘pops’, then move onto the next dot.  Since you’ve learned to ‘trace’ violet wand brands to this point, and practiced keeping the wand moving you’ll have to overcome your previous training to move the wand.  Just hold it there, wait for the sizzle, then you can move on.

A cell popped brand can be shaded. A denser pattern of dots for the heavier shaded areas, and less dense for the lighter. You also can get lighter dots with less time on the spot, though thats a less precise way to get shading.

There’s not a lot of seminars or information on it since its a sub technique of violet wand branding. Cell popped vw brands can be pretty darn permanent. This is because you rest on the same spot until the flesh is burned, making it more like regular heat strike branding. VW brands, even popped ones, dont go as far into dermal layers as heat strike brands, though.

The equipment you need for vw cell popping is probably already in your kit. It just takes that body contact probe or pad and a branding pick for a basic set up. To get a more permanent vw brand, you want to get the wand net discharge as high as possible.

The highest output of course comes direct from wand, inserting your branding tool or electrode right into the wand. Some branding tools/electrodes are made for wand insertion.
The next strongest output is using an extension cable and branding tips that insert into the cable.
After those methods, you start having to filter the discharge through you or your bottom which reduces the output, and that naturally affects the ‘heaviness’ and longevity of your brand.

So for a permanent cell popped brand, you want to set up for the strongest output that you can. If you want just a temporary violet wand brand, do it the Indirect/Reverse way with a branding pick. Cell popped violet wand brands last.
