Scar Obsession

Ever since I bought the game called Final Fantasy VIII, I've been obsessed with scars. The main character in the game has a scar on his face. His name is Squall. Then there's a character from an anime. His name is Gene Starwind. He has a lot of scars. I have a word that desribes anyone with a scar. I call it "groovy". I tell people that I want to be groovier than Gene, and they usually look at me like I'm crazy. The Japanese word for scar is soukon. I call myself a soukon otome, which is Japanese for ... read more

My little sunshine

I guess it all started back in high school. In an attempt to stay awake during my various classes, I would doodle little designs on my notebook. Keep in mind, I'm not an artist, so most of these drawings were pretty simple. One design that kept showing up over and over was a small sun consisting of a circle with 8 cresent shaped rays around it. It was my senior year and I had a few piercings and was very interested in body modifications. Somehow, I got the idea to have my little design branded on the inside of my ... read more

my scar

I have wanted a tattoo ever since i found out that they existed. I've always thought that they were the coolest things ever, and the most unique form of self expression. But my mom would never let me gat a tattoo. Since I was only fifteen at the time, there were no tattoo artists who I would have trusted if they tattooed an underage person, and my mom wouldn't let me get one, I was stuck with not having a tattoo. I first got the idea of scarring myself as art when i heard someone say to me "Why would ... read more

I Finally Got Cut

I was visiting San Diego for the weekend and found myself, more than a bit tipsy from the effects of alcohol, at Superfly Tattoo on Broadway. The guy I was with, idiot, said "Hey, Let's go get tattoos." (Translation: "Surely you'll sleep with me if I get a tattoo because then I'll be cool.") I went in with him and helped him pick out a stupid little flash tattoo *snicker* (hey! he was a jerk!) having no intention myself of getting any work done there because I have a good tattoo artist at home who I trust and all my ... read more

Scarification by fire

I read a lot of articles in BME about scarification and I have read a ot about cutting and branding. However, I never came across an article about burning with direct flame. I would like to share my experience with all the members. My experience is rather unique as I am very fond of FIRE. I am not really into branding, but more on BURNING, ie applying flame to my skin. My favourite place is my buttocks since I think that is the least painful of all other places, and easy to conceal. That is actually the main reason since ... read more

Body Modification at 14/Scarification experience

First I will tell you about myself. I am just a 14-year-old girl. Living in a "suburb-like town" in my upstairs apartment with my mom and her boyfriend. I love body modification, everything from piercing, to tattoos, to stretching, and mainly to scarification. It all began with my first ear piercing at a year or two old, because my mom thought it was "cute". Those turned out lopsided, but that's beside the point. Then at eleven years old, I got my first cartilage; it healed well. At twelve I decided I wanted more and got my second and third ear ... read more

Itty Bitty Facial Scarification

For a very long time I have wanted to have a scar on my chin, right from the bottom of my lip to just above the dimply raised part. It's not that much distance, actually, but since it's on my face I figure size isn't as important as satisfaction. Actually, I'd imagine that goes for any mod, but a facial mod is of course more "extreme" since it's more noticable and people can descriminate against it much easier. At any rate, I was very happy to obtain a scalpel, some latex gloves, a disposable camera (I should scan those pictures ... read more

The Next Urban Cowgirl

Well, the first time I had decided to cut, came as a victory in an argument. I had decided that I wanted to die. Too much pressure, I had no desire to live, no one understood me, that sort of thing. I though that I would go to bed, sleep on it, and if I still felt the same in the morning, then I would go through with it. The next morning I woke up, and I was totally stoked. I thought that I would try and cut, and then if I chickened out, I would spend the day getting ... read more

A Second Spiral Cutting

A month has passed since I had my first cutting done. With a better knowledge of the after care procedures and the "pain factor" I went in to have my right hand cut. The design is a perfectly symmetrical spiral that mirrors the one on my left hand. Because I was better prepared this was a much more casual experience. Now that I know about after care I can give a little history on what happened the last time I had a cutting done as well as how the procedure went this time around. The after care of my last ... read more
