    Cutting is over rated.
    I don't cut anymore.
    I brand.

    Branding mean that you burn yourself. With metal.

    I rip the strings from my guitar, heat them, put them on me, then slam a book or something on the heated wired so it burns into my skin.

    Really? I just heated a lighter for a long time and pressed it into my skin. I've known people to do chemical burning and even some kind of chemical freezing. They were really hardcore into it though.

    I want to get a professional and permanent brand of a clover on my chest someday. It's going to suck, but it'll be unique. I think that whole scene is called "Scarification"?

    Yeah... but, the thing is, my band members are always saying this; "Where the fuck are our guitar strings?" they look at me... xD

    I don't think over-rated is the right word. I think that implys that people do it to be cool...

    I think this is a joke post because frankly it's fckin pitiful.

    If you're gonna make jokes about self harm, go do it in the coffee shop.

    iKarma said it right, its not that much overrated as it is common. some people, dont know why though, would do it to be cool.

    and i just use a lighter and heat it and press it to my skin. but i still cut.. just do both

    i dont think its overrated.. they make two totaly different marks and feel totaly different. burns are fast. so its just a shot of pain all at once. Cuts are slow and well ur body spends more time coping with the pain and yada yada.. ahhh.. its totally different.. its all about your preferance but i dont think this a topic for here either..

    That was my first reaction,too.Even if someone does do this with guitar strings..its bordering on something completely different (emotionally) from self harm ..it is sick,but self harmers are not trying to be cute,cool or shock jocks..they usually HIDE the wounds and scars and feel shame....

    joke post or not - this is just advertising different ways to self harm and could give people ideas if they are vulnerable or triggered. it's not appropriate.

    As a support forum, we do not wish to promote self harm in any way. I am closing this thread as it is not supportive of healing, but rather harming.
