I have scars all over my body from cutting in the past, and am thinking about getting some scarification done to sort of hide them. Is this a good idea? I worry about discrimination and having to keep like my arms covered all the time while at work, but that's something I already do to hide the scars I have. Still that's something to think about. I'll post more pics later but this is my right thigh. Before this is want to get my left arm done but I gotta go for a bit. Will post the rest of my scars later :/
I've done bio oil before. It's great for the skin but does nothing for the scars. These are all several years old and not going away, trust me. I take amazing care of my skin now and the scars haven't improved at all.
That is a thought, though. That I'd be making it worse. You might be right but I think I would rather my scars be body art than just self-harm. I was thinking id make a consultation appointment with a highly rated scarification place and ask what they thought they could do to work with the scars already there. I saw a fish piece done to cover some scars and it looked like it turned out well.
Idk so undecided.
Scarification will only bring more attention to it.
Cover them with tattoos instead, they're infinitely more socially acceptable than scarification, which even if to cover up pre-existing scars looks like it was only done to healthy flesh.
For a while I did wear short sleeves like I didn't care. Might try it again in the summer. Definitely not gonna lie about them though. There's no reason to make up stories.
Well I'm worried about the tattoos not covering them so well because some are raised and some are lower the skin surface. Plus in the sun they're shiny and kind of obvious. But scars are kinda weird and sometimes people don't notice them at all, and I'm reading from people that have had it done that they're like that once past the pink stage. Like they're kinda subtle, but then if someone did notice it would look artsy hopefully. And not like SI scars?
Feel like I should talk to a decent artist and be evaluated it whatever
If I had learned something is that fixing the defects don't work
I'd get a tattoo
I'd notice my veins too much, got surgery and it didn't fix shit and got a bill, I got one of the best docs and even if I don't notice them that much, I'm in the same spot and in time it will be as bad as before
rock it with a tattoo or if you can get some korean creams for scars
