Transcript Men. A Step Beyond Boyhood Tattoos & Brands Tattoos and brands were a big part of fraternity and sorority life. Chris Wright said, "Every member has his own personal number. It is his and no one else will ever have the same number." Braden Brown said, "I joined Sigma Nu at OU. It was illegal to be tattooed in Oklahoma, so I went with some of my brothers to Dallas, Texas. I had the Greek letters and my personal number tattooed on the inside of my right ankle. My parents didn't mind at all." Tattoos were a symbol of membership in fraternities and sororities on campus, some used brands to show their strong feelings of membership. Donald Schaper said, "I saw branding done at another university I attended. The brands were either homemade out of coat hangers or were specially made to order. The branding iron was held down by several members, the brand was held to the upper arm for a few seconds to make sure it burned into the tissue," he said. Brewer continued af- 224 ter Schaper to say, "Then the wound was treated with ointment. Everyday for a week or two, the scab would be pulled off to make the brand stand out." Officially, no one knew of these practices on the campus. Dr. Billie Jean Smith, director of Public Health Center said, "Those students who tattoo themselves run the risk of contracting hepititis or AIDS. However, we have not had a problem on this campus."- Merrill Baum -* POINT TAKEN...Greg Wassberg eagerly displays his letters and pin number as a representation of his commitment to Sigma Nu.
