Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
this community is dedicated to posting pictures of self-injury. we know many people LOVE to look at pictures and we are hoping to have a very active community. everyone is welcome as long as you follow the rules...(there aren't many, don't worry)

**if you are trying to stop self injuring, this may not be the place for you. we are pro-si. that is, we do not condone self injury, but we are supportive of anyone who does self injure. some people do not want to stop and we are supportive of that. some people may also be trying to stop and we support that as well. some people find looking at pictures soothing, exciting, and interesting so we want to give them an active community where they may post their pictures and discuss their opinions without being insulted.

*NO bashing/flaming/insulting,etc. we will ban your ass so fast. don't test us.
*if this site offends you in any way, keep it to yourself and leave. don't stick around and tell us how you feel, we've heard it all before and we don't care to hear it again.

*please post all pics under an lj-cut
*post as much as you want as long as anything triggering is under an lj-cut
