Well there is one from cycling into a lamppost when I was 5, one from dropping molten solder on my hand when I was 10, one from the cat when I was around 10 and a few big ones on my knees from a motorcycle accident when I was 24....

Hmmm...

There's one on the back of my head from me going backwards into a wall...I think I was 7 at the time...

There's one in the front above the left brow which I got when I was 15. That one was wierd...I was playing with a few friends in the school playground and a stone came from nowhere and got me right in the forehead...gave me a few stiches to make me remember that one...

There's a small one on my chin from one on the speakers dislodging from the wall mount and falling on my face...while I was sleeping !!! And the funny part...I dreamt that a car hit me !!! Oh, how glad I am that it stayed that way.

There are a few on my legs from tumbling down a hill... That will be another post sometime...

Re: How many scars do you have

In my case the question better asked would be 'which part of your body doesn't have scars'? My legs are covered in scars from Rugby boots (you're on the ground, you are the ground), my arms from various cycling/in-line skating/skateboard antics (don't really know how to brake), some small ones on my face from mashing it on the pavement (bike accident followed by surgery). My hands are a mess (various cut fingers, almost severed my left index with a bread knife once). I think my back is pretty scar-free, and my belly.

I know, I'm hard core. Or maybe just accident prone ;P

4 major ones:

- one on my left hand from when my grandfather accidentally dropped hot cigarette ashes on it when I was a kid

- a 5cm long one on my belly from when I slipped on wet cobblestone pavement while running around a curve as a kid

- two major ones on both elbows from falling down a staircase in Hungary (note: wearing slippers and running down wooden stairs is NOT a good idea)

- a couple of minor ones from slipping and falling on a tartan race-track while handing over the baton in a 4x100m relay race. That hurt like S**T for several days.

Re: How many scars do you have

I have a lot, but funny enough, only one from skateboarding, the rest from a load of things:-

1) ran through a patio door/window so have a nice big scar on my hand where a piece of glass went in, looks like a knife so its quite cool

2) my brother dropped a swing ball frame (one of those poles where you can play tennis with a ball tied to the pole and it goes round in circles) anyway he dropped the sharp end meant for going into the ground from the top of our climbing frame and it almost took my eye out, nice small scar on my eyebrow

3) just above my eyebrow is a scar shaped like a half moon where I opened the door in a petrol station to leave and knocked myself out (yes I opened the door into my own head ) when I came to, the guy behind the counter, who was still behind the counter just said, you ok? didnt offer to help, drove home with blood going into my eyes and went to the neihbour who was a nusre and game me rum!

4) chin skateboard scar from landing hard on my chin doing a slide

there are more but nothing really interesting,

Re: How many scars do you have

-one on my thumb from when I nearly chopped it off when I was 10

-a few chickenpox scars on my chest and stomach

-a very faint one on my nose from when I was pushed off a wall and landed smack on my face when I was five - very lucky not to break anything

-a small dent in my shin from rollerblading

and a cool birthmark on my neck and chin that people keep thinking is a bruise or a huge love bite

Re: How many scars do you have

oh my :-)that s trip down memory lane that is

1st was two years old - neighbour boy hit me with a metal shovel over the head

2nd around 6 yrs old, ripped open ringfinger from belt buckle as father hit me ....

3rd around 9 years old, playing circus,driving down a slope on the big tricycle,fabric over head ( well otherwise it wouldn't be circus artistry eh?)hitting sidewalk .....about 10 stitches in forehead,still visible....


4th cutting off finger tips from index and middle finger on the right hand with kitchen machine, the ensuing 4 surgeries left a few scars

Various other surgery scars, or from gardening,cooking etc wouldn't want to miss any of them !!

Re: How many scars do you have

- one on my left leg (thigh) where our "doctor" tried to vaccinate me against polio when I was little. If what my mother tells me is correct, he used a red-hot kitchen knife with the serum on it
- one on my right leg (skid marks), where I flew off my bicycle and landed in the gravel at the age of about 8
- one (very small) just below left boob from when I had my gallbladder removed
