Actually branding like that (like you would cattle - the entire pattern in one big hot metal mess pressed against the skin at once) is really common in certain fetish groups. I would totally get it done this way. Not so much the strike or two, reheat, strike or two, reheat way. I'm more of a "get it over with" kind of person when it comes to pain, though.
