i just spent the last half hour trying to take a picture of the 8 inch long frankenstein like scar that runs down my left thigh. (it didn't come out right)
i spent 20 minutes after that trying to take a picture of the scar on my right ankle that i got while snorkeling in hawaii when i swam a bit too close to some coral. (it didn't come out right either)
next i tried to photograph the burn scar on the inside of my left arm that i got from a pie baking incident but it would show the fairly large tattoo on my left wrist and all i could think about was my mom yelling at me for sharing my tattoo with the internet.
when i got the idea for this post i wanted to share with you all some of my "superficial" flaws. i mean i could show you a picture of my ass but i don't want to give anyone nightmares.
the point is we all have marks and scars on our body that weren't there when we were born, but at some point during our lives these marks have become a part of us.
the other tattoo i have on my right hip? yup that's there for life.
the piece of lead that is stuck in the palm of my right hand from when i fell on a pencil in elementary school? i happen to think it adds character.
i could go on and on, but the point is that i wouldn't take any of these so called flaws and make them go away - they have become a part of me. (except maybe my ass)
what permanent scar/mark on your body are you most attached to?
