Stick and poke from this evening, Rat (as in survivor rat), and a half way done banner.
I put Rat on my arm there, to work as a deterrent from self harming. As you can see, I have quite a few scars on my arm and some healing cuts. These are all from the past month, which was a relapse after 8 months clean. Earlier on today one of them opened up and there was too much blood, so I’ve got a shitty plaster on it. I believe that if I put effort in to tattoo my arm, I’ll see it as something not to destroy. 
 Also, above my riot tattoo is a big scroll. I haven’t finished this yet, I’ve just done the bare outline. I’m thinking of filling it with either ‘trust no man’, or something like ‘take care’ or ‘have faith’. My thighs are another place where I used to self harm, so the decoration is welcome and needed.
