slave gets branded
branding & tattoo
 branding & tattoo

Sometimes this feels the most important thing in the world (until you change Masters for some reason). Consider the reason why the slave is marked and what it is saying about him and how good he feels about it. It can be a bit like the old Sailors tattoos, with all his Girl friends names crossed out on his arm. Better to mark some other event/rite of passage, like the moment that he was 'Born' as a slave unto his Master. So It celebrates his discovery of his slave self, which just happen to be with Master X. It could be the height of ego for a Master to have "Property of John Doe" tattooed on the slave, like why does the Master need this to ensure that the slave will be with him; to some this is like tempting fate. Should you have a whole series of Masters, you would have a problem.

Marking your property

African slaves were often branded so the owners could identify them as their property, just like cattle are often branded today. Some fraternities reclaimed strike branding and turned it into an empowering statement. Frat Houses still practice branding their fraternal insignia, or Greek letters, into willing members as a show of dedication to each other - you belong - your mine.

Where as if the slave had "Property of Master X" this is ambiguous, but makes the point.
