    So I used to be a self harmer (and a pretty bad one) and as a result I've got self harm scars on my wrists and on my inner thighs (and my legs). The ones on my legs are pretty faded but the ones on my thighs and wrists are not. They're fairly deep scars so I had them covered with tattoos. On my wrist, is a dandelion which covers the scar. On my thigh, there's an hourglass to cover them up. You can see a few little cuts anyway.

    I've been on dates with guys and they have told me that tattoos are a massive turn off and so are self harm scars. I've been self concious of it ever since and I was wondering,

    1) Guys, would you find self harm scars a turn off?
    and

    2) Would you find tattoos that cover them a turn off?

    In all honesty, people are going to be "turned off" by things like those because they are shallow and/or ignorant. Thing is, you don't need these kind of people in your life. Someone who respects you will not be affected by those things, and will treat you how you deserve to be treated

    ps; I used to speak to a girl which self-harmed, and in no way did it make me judge her for it. Instead we spoke about it and she's at the point where she doesn't do it any more

    Excessive tattoos that are very noticeable are a bit of a turn off for me.

    A few tattoos here and there to cover scars? Not a problem. Tells a story.
    In fact I know a girl (seriously lol) and she once showed me a scar under her chin and i was amazed at how cute i found it. No explanation why. It was just cool.
