Here is a photo of myself from last year which shows a few of my scars which I have adorned my body with. I’ve slowly collected my scars over the last decade by seeking artists who’s medium is the human skin. Over time having scars has made me feel more in touch with my body, more attractive, proud, and confident in myself. The process of getting scars has also been very nurturing in ways because it has always pushed me to be especially caring towards myself while my body was healing. I am still shy about them at times because of people’s negative associations with scars but since they are mostly always covered with clothes they act somewhat as mental armor. Like a special hidden part of myself that gives me self worth and makes me happy.
