  1. You wanna know how I got these scars?

    My father, was a drinker, and a fiend. And one night, he goes off crazier than usual. Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn’t like that. Not. One. Bit. So, me watching, he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it. He turns to me and says, “Why so serious?” Comes at me with the knife. “WHY SO SERIOUS?” He sticks the blade in my mouth… “Let’s put a smile on that face.” And

  2. I stabbed myself in the hand with a pocket knife trying to pop the zipties of the scissors I wanted to use to pop the zipties of the socket set I needed to fix the dishwasher. It was an awkward Christmas eve…

  3. I have far too many scars. Most of them are from my days as a cutter. But I have a ton from injuries I’ve gotten during seizures. So, lots of stories I guess.

  4. Ran in flip flops, one of them bent and I dragged my toe all across the concrete for about a full meter.

    In case we aren’t talking about fresh scars, I’ve got one on my finger from when, being a dumbass kid, I wore a “lucky ring” during a match. Forgot to take it off and went to bed. Woke up with a bloated fucking finger and went to the firefighters to get the ring sawed off. I still have a scar from the heat that generated.

  5. I was 1/4 mile racing my dad’s old 4 speed gto and the flywheel exploded. Some of the pieces entered the driver compartment and cut my left leg near my knee.

  6. Which one lol? I have quite a few.

    My worst one is the missing tip if my left ring finger. Happened when I was about 18 months old. My parents tell me the story of them watching Aliens on rented vhs (might even have been beta), and I was doing my thing around the house, at some point a strong gust of wind caused an internal door to slam, somehow only my ring finger was in the way. Anyway I started crying and spraying aterial blood all over the place.

    Apprently there was no surgeon on duty that day so instead of reattching my finger was cleaned up and stitched closed. A few days later when I shook the bandage off my parents thought the tip remained in the bandage and rushed me back to hospital where they were informed that it was never reattached.

    In the past I have made up many stories of how it was cut off… From a motorcycle accident, to a baby croc biting and doing it’s deathroll on my finger. Has helped once or twice to get a girl to hold my hand 😃

  7. Fell down a mine, somehow – despite sharp pointy rocks and my wearing shorts/t-shirt – I only got this one cut on my wrist. Bled like a bitch, mini panic attack as I was worried it was bleeding heavily enough that it had grazed an artery and I was miles from help…but yeah, I was just being dramatic.

  8. I annoyed my brother so he shoved my hand into an electric lamp while it was on.

    I annoyed my sister so she stabbed my arm with a fork.

    I tripped over and slit my chin open on gravel, then after I had stitches I fell over in the same area and split the stitches.

    I walked past metal at work and the edge sliced my arm.

  9. When I got with the main girl I’m with her boyfriend figured out and the bastard stabbed me with my own knife jokes on him I didn’t press charges or anything I just told him she came on to me and he was a loser. he got me right above my knee, I wasn’t able to walk for a day but after a week I was walking with a limp and a mouth I was back in the gym

  10. when i was younger, my family would go fishing a lot. one day, they got bored and decided to play some football, next to our favorite spot for fishing, there was a small spot of trees, my uncle threw the football too hard at one point, it went flying into the trees, i went in and ended up tripping over a fallen tree and landing on broken glass.

  11. Let’s see….cut marks on my left shoulder, pec, and back are from my ex who was bipolar and decided she was a vampire one night.

    3 of the ones on my hands are from dudes trying to stab me or my older brother.

    Have a long thin one going from my right thumb up my forearm, that one was Mardi Gras 2007. Was a drunk with a knife so that was fun.

    Left hip is from a hernia rupture when I was 5.

    Right thigh, left foot, left calf are from stone and sand being turned into shrapnel from an IED.

    And the circular scar in my right cheek is from a .22 lr round from about 40 yards when I was ten from my cousins deciding to have a shoot out over a Becky down the block.

    Oh, and electrical burns/cigarette burns to my fingers and major knuckles. Those are the ones that suck the worst due to nerve damage fucking with my gaming.

  12. I was stabbed by my mother when I was 9. She was super drunk and waving a knife around on the couch I was cuddled up on. She flung her arm right and the knife went into my leg. It didn’t go super deep, and thankfully didn’t do any damage. But, 32 years later, I still have the scar.

  13. I have a small half circle on my cheek. When I was maybe about 4yrs old I punctured it trying to open a Mcdonald straw by smashing it against my face

  14. When I was a teen my appendix burst, during surgery they found cancer inside it and removed it. 20 years later, I almost died because of internal bleeding caused by ectopic pregnancy. Saved at the nick of time both times.
