hi, i'm new here so if i post anything that's already been posted, sorry.
when i cut or burn, a lot of times i do pictures or words. does anybody else do this? if you do, what are some of the designs you have? i've burned and cut some crosses, burned and cut 2 A's (my name is Ashley), and i've cut the word 'UNASHAMED' under 1 of the burned crosses.
also, has anybody ever had 'professional' branding or scarification?

I've never cut designs or words. Iono, its just me, when I cut I usually do it for a quick relief. Plus, I feel like if people saw those designs or words, as opposed to just straight, sideways scars they'd know. somehow straight-looking scars seem less obvious,

I do, but not often. It's usually just straight cuts and whatever. But I did burn a heart and cut a "Z" (my boyfriend's name is Zach).


I miss you. I miss your smile. And I still shed a tear every once in a while. And even though it's different now, you're still here somehow. My heart won't let you go. And I need you to know I miss you..."

Yes, I do. And this is your warning: be careful with this thread. It could get triggering.
