How to hide cuts (while im still quitting) - October 12th 2017, 09:26 AM

Basically while my watch band is broken and i have obvious cuts on my wrist how can I hide them right now all im doing is angling my wrist carefully and being selective with what hand I use and its a pain in the ass and effecting school, so what can I do while im still cutting (end in site) two hide them?

You could wear long sleeves, or get long sleeved shirts with thin fabric if it is too warm where you live. You could also get an ace bandage and wrap your wrist and if anyone asked, you can say that you have a slight sprain and you're waiting for it to heal a little bit. You could wear bracelets, or look into purchasing another inexpensive watch. You could use a sweat band or wrap a bandanna around your wrist. Lastly, you could look into makeup if your cuts are not fresh.

Cassado has given you some great ideas. What I do to hide my scars when they are fresh is to wear bracelets or a sweat band. I also use make up even on fresh cuts that are scabbed over a little it doesn't hide them completely but it covers them up pretty well.

We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.

Don't know what style of clothes you wear but if it is punk/metal you could wear the chunky leather wristbands and no one would no better of it.
