is it SELF INJURY or just SCARIFICATION?

I can't tell if what I am doing to my body is considered scarification or self-injury anymore. All I know is I find myself saying, 'Ooh..a star could look quite pretty there..' I have always loved the shape of stars, but just this year I got a bit eccentric about them. I have clips for my hair of stars, now a scar of one, undies with them, earrings, and soon to have a CBR of one. I consider myself pretty much obsessed. They always remind me of my childhood, which I miss. And, for all of you old people, I ... read more

Scars with a wire brush OUCH thats pain

Before I start the wholedesciption of why and how i began my scarification i would like to tell you a litle bit about myself.

cutting is the only god.

I have always been depressed. Nothing but shit has happened since I was 2, and I've never fully recovered. When I was twleve years old, I got suicidal, and sliced my wrists several times. But I never really went beyond that. Then, after counsilling and going on pills, I realized that I no longer wanted to die, but only wanted to cut myself. I cut now on a regular basis. When I was on BME, I found the scarification place, and immadiatley fell in love. Enough of the boring one line one cuts, I wanted MORE. But I never really ... read more

What the Hell is Wrong with Me

Hey Hey I've actually started wondering, what the hell is wrong with me? Everytime I get mad, and I don't want to cry, I'll do something insanly odd and mutilating to myself. Only this time I actually lost my mind. I was sitting on my bed, not doing a damn thing. I don't know what made me pick up the knife but I just did. I felt I was loosing everything that was near to me, so I began carving a "7" into my ankle. The number of God. My need for pain began to scare me, just an hour ... read more

Self-carving and Ink rubbing

Hey everyone I have ventured into the zone of no wimps. Self cutting. It all started last year with me being quietly depressed and questioning God. I went out on a limb and carved a pentagram into my left inner ankle. Then I carved an "X" into my forearm, to show that the blood that runs through my veins is off limits to others (Long story, don't wanna get into it). Then came the rapid scratching phase. I could scratch myself many times and get a nice, burning open wound. I have them along my outer right wrist, I call ... read more

OUCH, OUCH, OUCH....Dec 2nd 2000

I've never really been one for pain, especially self-inflicted pain (unless as a stupid drunken dare), so the thought of deliberately and soberly cutting my flesh with a scalpel for no other apparent reason (to my viewing public at least) other than vanity, filled me with intense trepidation and a warm feeling of social and personal autonomy. I was stepping over the line, the line of what has become socially acceptable 'body modifications'. Scarification is just as old as piercing and tattooing but somehow the desire to cut yourself, to slice through your own skin and flesh seems to be ... read more

Scarifaction Captured In My Film

For those of you that know me, you know i delve into the art of filmaking and made one short film in my life so far. I've wanted scarifacation for as long as i can remember, and one night filming my first movie, "The Slave Garden", i decided to finally let the razor loose. I had the plans on doing it this particular night finally. I wasn't nervous. The worst that could come out of it was that i could cut too deep and get stitches or worst case, cut an artery where i'm sure i would be rushed to ... read more

My scars

r thought that scarification would be an area of interest for me. I always thought it was beautiful, but I never had the courage to actually go through with it. I knew a few people who had inflicted scars on themeselves in high school because it was the cool thing to do, and I always thought that was wrong. To date, I have 2 brands and about 4 or 5 scars..This is my story.. The first mark I put on my body happened this summer. I have a beautiful ankh charm that I wear around my neck on a chain. ... read more

Un-Known Body Mods

started when i was about 12. I was in a deep depression and needed a way out of all of it so i needed to find a new release from the pain. My arm was itchy, and i could feel all the inner pain within me. I picked up a pair of scissors and drug it across my right arm, which was no easy task being in left handed, and using a pair of dull scissors. Instantly i could feel all the inner pain rush out of my body, it was great! Suddenly, all the pain and anger that was ... read more
