Is Blood for Blood *supposed* to hurt the user?

Scrapper:Master in the rogue attack tree gives the 'Blood for Blood' ability. Every time I use it, my rogue takes damage (and often dies from it). Is this supposed to happen? Neither the skill nor the mastery says anything about that, but the name kinda hints that it does...

They are supposed to take some damage for it while dealing damage. Sybale does something like fifteen damage while taking four points and yes, I found she kept dying. So, I let her go.

Lol. So I'm not just crazy...

But considering skills/masteries are a pretty big part of the game and especially since there are no respecs... shouldn't something that important to a skill be noted in the description? It ended up being a wasted point as soon as I realized that it killed my rogue to use it :P

Its description used to read something like "deal X damage and take Y", but InXile patched that out in one of their updates.
