When I was 8 years old in Germany I tried to catch the glass door leading into an apartment building I was wearing new patent leather shoes as I ran to catch the door from closing and locking I slipped and went thru the door I got 2 big cuts on my knee.I still have the scars today.I never felt self conscience about them as a girl.They were there and that was it I always thought they were kinda cool.I guess that was the tomboy in me.
I have a few other minor scars.

But you can add some butterfly strips over it after the glue dries and that will hold most cuts you get.
So, does the glue just eventually wear off? How do you remove it?

Yep they were pretty deep gashes I had to wear a cast to keep me from bending my knee until it healed.

Yep, it just eventually comes off just like a scab as the scar tissue underneath forms. You don't take it off or anything.

Okay,you guys want scars? We got scars.

Just try whacking off a bunch of toes with a lawnmower.

Not nearly as dashing as a dueling scar!

OK, we're getting into some serious "mine's bigger than yours" stuff here. I think we have to start requiring pictures.
