Note: This blog includes a tag for "healed scarification". This tag was included because scars that are healed or healing look very different from the fresh scars we commonly see and it's important to see the different ways scars can heal before getting one yourself. This tag IS NOT a way to avoid seeing blood. Often the fresh and healed images are posted side by side, or healed scars are visible in fresh photos where a person has added to their existing work. ALL scarification photos (and all other categories on this blog) carry a potential trigger warning for blood.
