Knife Fight

Eye-slash scarification by Lewis Dodd at Trimur in Barcelona, Spain… I don’t know what this person’s story is, but don’t assume that he’s a poseur — the last couple scars like this I posted were all on people who lived high physical risk lives, but found themselves completely unharmed and unscarred by it, so they wanted to self-induce marks of their lifestyle (really not that different from getting a tattoo of something you love, I suppose).

  1. i have a small scar on my eyebrow from when i was 5 that ive wanted to get elongated ever since i first played FF8. looks awesome and definitely making me think about it.

  2. My knife is super-sharp, and that’s where it counts;
    I’m gonna make you bleed copious amounts!

  3. I’d love to see how this heals, especially since it’s something I’m considering doing myself one day.

  4. I thought about Scar from the Lion King =D I do every time I see a cutting/scar like that!

  5. i’m realy not concerned whether he’s a poseur; i was just thinking, “god, he let some thatclose to his eye!!! eeep!”

    I like it though, he’s scar from the lion king

  6. Do most people get the “poseur” feeling about facial scars like this? I think they look fantastic and don’t see any insincerity in it.. I am guessing that having your face slowly cut with a scalpel hurts, too, so it’s not even like it’s totally painless.

    I’m curious how prevalent that kind of reaction is, though.

  7. #14 I was thinking the same thing too. I love these scars and think they are beautiful and hellsa interesting.

  8. This guy had already a few facial scars from motorcycle accidents, but had had this scar on his mind since he was about 5, a pirate sword wound. his famillys reaction was ahh you finally got what u wanted for such a long time. I wouldnt consider him a poseur, or to have a high physical risk lifestyle, although being a graffiti artist can sometimes be high risk and involve physical police abuse. any quetions about him feel free to ask, thanks for the nice comments

  9. I agree with #14…”poseur” was not the first thing that came to mind. I think it’s bitchin’!

  11. the termination pieces right before the top of the eye and right below the bottom of the eye make the “wound” look less accidental and more self inflicted/precise
