This is a question Scars with history

You've all got scars: they're nature's little reminders not to be so damned stupid next time. My favourite is the 1/4" round hole in the back of my right hand, created when I was 7 by my best friend putting a manure-covered gardening fork "away".

Tell us the stories behind your scars. With photos if possible.

1.5cm scar on top of left big toe.
Walking barefoot and Hobbit-like along Rua Vidal Negreiros in Recife after the Noite dos Tambores Silenciosos (Night of the Silent Drums) 2003, I cut myself on a stray piece of glass. A friend noticed the blood from the cut when my foot surfaced from the sewery pool that was the street after a tropical rainstorm. A little later ensued much puss and pain. Not good, then.

Also small scar on the top of my head after having fallen of a wall (where my mother had sat me) on to a nail in a brick! Tetanus, here I came!

messer gabel schere licht...
left hand scar 7 mm: cut off a slice of index finger at work while cutting paper. quite impressive splatter.
right hand scar 12 mm: me, a scalpel and some adhesive film at a drawing table. scalpel slips out of my hand, rolls down the table. i, of course, catch it before it reaches the floor. the blade stuck right between my middle and ring finger.

I have a stupid little scar on the side of my knee
from when I was about eight. I fucking hate datshunds, they are annoying, stupidly shaped, and their name is too hard to spell. Anyhoo, I used to have neighbours down the street with dashhounds, and they would constantly bark at me, attempt to chase me, and generally be dicks. One fine summer's day, myself and the other neighbourhood kids were riding skateboards down the big hill (we sat on them, as we were utter wussies). Running up the hill after one ride, I look beside me to see a dashhound. He was not barking, not chasing, or anything. He and I were just running up the hill together. "Hey, maybe these dogs aren't so bad" I thought to myself. Ilooked over, looked at the dog, and he seemed to smile at me. I smiled back and looked away.

Then the little fucker bit me.
Not much blood or damage, but I was right pissed off.

I'm from the States, so this isn't quite as odd over here. . . . .
but I have a lovely scar on my forehead from when I was 12 and shot a large-caliber handgun for the first time--a Colt .45, kicked like a freakin' mule and the hammer gashed a big hole in my scalp. Bled like nothing I'd ever seen, but it makes me happy.

Another one on my thigh where I took a tiny knife in my leg when a tweeked-out stripper who lived with the local speed cook came home to find me shooting up in her bathroom and immediately assumed I was boffing her meal-ticket.

Oh, and a nice tiny puckered scar on my side from a liver biopsy, but when I'm drunk and showing it off I say it was a knitting needle I took in the ribs.

Surprise surprise
I noticed that several people were mentioning scars they have on their fingers from cutting up food.

Out of curiosity, I counted the scars on my own fingers.

I have 39. Dear god, it's amazing I still HAVE fingers.

Admittedly, most of them are quite faint, but I know for a fact that one of them is a double- I cut my finger slicing bagels, it healed for a week, then I cut the exact same spot AGAIN.

My Small, yet painful scar...
I have a small scar, vaguely comma shaped on the underside of my penis. It hapened a few years ago, when i had the (mis)fortune to pull the local slapper. This girl was widely renowned for having taken in more semen than the Royal Navy, even at the tender age of 17. So, after the feeblest of foreplay, (a quick twist of each nipple, and a sly finger inserted, then brought up behind her head while you kiss her neck to make sure she doesn't smell off) I rammed my little soldier home, as hard as I could. You can imagine my shock then, as this 'slut of the town' turned out to have a front bottom not dissimilar in circumference to that of a mouse's ear-hole. There was an almost audible, and certainly palpable 'twang' as my 'banjo string' snapped. I then had to walk five miles home, with a penis pouring blood. In white jeans. And it hurt like fuck to piss for the next 10 days.

Drunk at the pub
playing darts set the scene, In my stupor I'd pulled off a nice pair of treble twenties, not sure how but maybe the luck was the last bit that day, my friend had lined up and as I was informing a friend of my fortune as I removed the dart from the board, there was an odd tingling sensation in the base of my thumb, funniest thing was when i was removing my mates dart from my thumb it was so far embedded in my thumb that when i did yank it out i also put my knuckle out of joint. tiny scar mind, reasonable story

My dad fell over on a path which had a fair bit of loose gravel when he was a kid. He grazed his elbow (amongst other things) but didn't notice that a stone about 5mm across had gone into the wound. It healed over and he can wiggle it around under his skin in a nauseating manner to this day.

My mate who happens to have the same name as my dad has a spectacular 3" scar on the side/back of his head from falling off a skateboard. It's especially noticeable since he has a mohawk at the moment...

Across the River
Once crossed a river in a tiny, unpowered cable-car. Gravity carried me halfway across, but then I stopped. Reached overhead and started pulling hand-over-hand on the cable to keep going, and the cable-car wheel ran over my hand: my own weight helped strip the skin off my thumb. Now, should I contemplate bank robberies, I have unique thumbprint for ID!

I got my scar tap dancing
That's right, on my chin, there is a half inch scar (2 stitches) from when I was 5 years old and a tap dancer.
A word to the wise. Even though your tap shoes ARE lovely and slippery when you are on the kind of shiny concrete used for rollerskating rinks, don't spin around in circles in them.
You will fall down.
You will ruin your favourite white leotard.
Your little brother will wee himself at the doctors.
Well. Maybe not the last one, but it certainly added to the drama in my case!

(Woohoo first post!)

got a few
OK from the top of me going down:

1" scar between eyes from nutting a table corner aged 10 months - my son and daughter both have scars in the same area, both done at 10 months old too - oooo spooky

Left shoulder - 3 1" scars - 2 front, 1 back, from an op to scrape calcium buildup from my tendons. Told boss of 2 month I'm going for a lil op be back in 3 days - 6 weeks later I turn back up at work still in a sling

Left elbow - 3 inch raggy scar from falling aged about 10 on a newly laid green spikey gravel road. Much bleeding, bone and muck showing through. No trip to hospital cos Dad says "ah he'll be ok" and proceeds to wash it with iodine.

Left index finger - caught in a car door and broken, now points slightly away from the others.

Right wrist - 1" burn scar from hot bitumen when I was a roofer.

Right thumb base - 1" scar from an exhaust I was fixing, no blood from it just a nice neat scar still here 8 years later.

Right thumb by nail - 1" scar from hitting it with mash hammer one day at work, nicley squishing my thumb between it and a big steel chisel, thumb splits and bleeds nicley.

Right index finger - chunk missing where I stupidly left my finger above the chuck of a stress testing machine. I worked in a foundry and this maching pulled steel bars apart. I was told "Don't put your hand above the chuck when you release the samples" - so i went and did it anyway, chuck comes slowly up the machine and straight through my finger. Cue me looking dumbly at a missing piece of finger.

Abdomen - new scars as of 2 weeks ago today :o) - appendectomy - 2" scar by belly buttton, 1" scar about 3" below that and another (1/2" scar) 3" above my john thomas.

Banjo string - over-enthusiastic wife gives me 2 nicks in my banjo string one night. Booze numbs me to the pain.

Right thigh - 1" scar from cutting flooring with a hook-bladed stanley knife. Must remember to cut AWAY from me.

Oh and just today a lil one in my left index finger, from trying to catch a pepper I was cleaning while holding a new very sharp knife.

Ah and finally scars of various lengths (one is about 8") from a lunatic rabbit and mad dog i own. These will fade in a year or so to be replaced by new ones as normal.

Erm first post and my apologies for the extreme length (wish I could say that more often ho hum)

Once I was really down
And scratched "I'm a cunt" into my arm with a drawing pin. I didn't think it would scar.

Stupid scars
I have a nice scar where I stuck a fork through my hand once when pricking jacket potatoes whilst gossiping on phone to friend from school - I made a lovely potato and hand kebab!
My boyfriend is covered in scars (ex rugby player, what do you expect?) - the best scars being those on his hands: he didn't like having hairy knuckles as a teenager so shaved them and ripped his fingers to shreds and a nice one on his hand where he thought it would be a good idea to see if it would hurt if he closed a flick knife on it. Duh!!!

Tis 'nother
manure covered garden fork one. Me and an ex g/f of mine were cleaning out her muck trailer (that sounds a bit rude!). She was scraping the crap from the back of the trailer when she plunged the fork through her shin. I don't remember seeing her actually doing it, but about 5 minutes later, she said "Theres a hole in my wellie". So off comes the boot, and lo and behold, there was a mark on her shin. "Oh" says she. It wasn't until we noticed the hole in the back of her wellie, and subsequently the mark on the back of her leg, that she went a rather odd shade of green. Manure covered fork straight through leg. Now, being the caring boyfriend, I suggested that we go to the hospital and have it checked out. The only problem was, she lived in the arse end of nowhere, and I couldn't drive. I had to get her into the car and get her to drive us the 10 or so miles to A&E. Oooh! She was a bit faint to say the least. I then lost it when they put a big pipette thing full of iodine straight through the hole. Still makes me a bit queezy now. Hence a scar similar to chthonics on her shin and calf. She had really nice legs too.......

I have a moleste gash across my thigh
where I tripped over a three-foot high petrol station wall and fell head first over it.

I have several......
.....from a biking accident almost two years ago. I realised that it is not a good sign when you see the bike flying past your ear. Action: Brace for fookin moleste impact, ripped my leg open, gouged a chunk out of my shoulder and tore open a large area of my right elbow. After all of this I fell unconscious and pissed myself (Mental scarring is not nice!!) Three days off work and lovely scars on my shoulder, knee and elbow to prove my manliness.

Oh yeah, it was a BMX I fell off of! A FUCKING BMX!!!!!!!!!!!!

I only had myself to blame....
Working for an education-flavoured government agency, I needed to get the wanky wire binding off an OfSTED report (frankly if the teachers spent less time and money binding their documents in posh ways they might not need our help). It wouldn't come off, so I enlisted the help of some scissors to prise the wire off.
This was working well until the scissors slipped and lodged in the side of my hand near my thumb. Cue my stunned silence and the sound of all 5 girls in the office squealing and over reacting as I had to yank the sharp end out of my hand while blood pissed everywhere in pretty little splodges.
Fortunately I managed to get another copy, rather than having to call the school and say "Yes, we did receive it but I accidentally drenched it in human blood."

Emotional Scarring.
A little off topic I know but I'm pretty sure my mate Hamish is going to be carrying some emotional scars after the 21st birthday party we just threw him. Envision this, young man forced to...
1)Drink random spicy condements out of shot glasses.
2)Dress in drag and perform a striptease.
3)Consume the contents of part of all the diffrent bottles of alcohol in the house mixed together.
4)Run around the block in nothing but boxer shorts.

And we caught it all on video!

Sister making Chips
Using a weird potato slicing chip maker. Without Guard. Not paying attention. Slices most of her hand up with 1 stroke, (it had multiple blades) cue being rushed off to A&E and my laughing at her for saying I would hurt myself using it! Needless to say we threw that thing away after this.

Another quality one from her, walking around our wood floored kitchen in socks, slips and leg goes straight through front of oven, slashes up leg and broken glass everywhere.

Shes a bit of a dumbass really.
Also shes half blind.
