I have no words for this. The symbolism behind this is stunning, and I love it so much for that. I love how you have "Hope" on your arm, where all of the scars are. It's just amazing., and I love that despite all the bad things, this picture shows that there i always hope.

I give you kudos for uploading this, and kudos for thinking of it. I've never seen a picture of this nature, and never have I ever seen a picture about self harm that has had such an impact.

My only suggestion would be to keep your arm more to one side, rather than diagonal- but seeing as how you were probably holding the camera with your left hand, it is very well taken!
What do you think?

Wow... I don't know what to say. I mean, I do have something to say about this because it's so good and well done and everything. It's just...I don't know where to begin. Well, I guess I'll start on how this shows people who are cutters for numerous reasons and can't stop that there is hope for them to do so. Another thing this photo shows for a person is that no matter what life throws at you that physically or mentally scars you, that you can never give up and give in to your darkest desires. You you need to keep moving on, not accept death, and hang onto whatever belief you have. Well done, my friend. Well done.
