1. Scar above my right eye, when I tripped and fell over and hit my head on the corner of the back door step after running around and around in and out of the house with my brother. Ironically this happened mere seconds after my dad bellowed at us "stop running around and around in and out of the house before one of you tripped over and cracks your head open on the door step".

I was lucky not to lose my eyesight there in truth.

2. A small scar on my left forearm from when the cat scratched me.

3. A small mark on my left thumb from when I splashed hot fat onto my hand whilst frying some sausages.

An elongated ' n ' yes with a circular scar on the top too - 32 stitches in all - the circular piece of missing skin was the deepest part of the cut - took ages to heal - I was visiting the Nurse every third day for 12 weeks and had three separate courses of antibiotics - they kept taking photographs to keep records of how it was healing - I felt a bit of a minor celebrity as the nurses enjoyed the challenge of fighting off the infection and watching the skin heal bit by bit .

Not so much a scar, more a lump on my right cheek (face, not arse) caused by a small stone embedded under the skin after falling flat on my face running down a hill at infant school. Over the years, fatty tissue has built up around the stone but Doctor said as long as it doesn't cause any pain or gets any bigger, leave it as it is.

Scar above left eye after running into a door at Junior school. Like any head wound it pissed blood and I looked like I'd been 10 rounds with Mike Tyson, but in the end it was only 6 stitches but scar is still prominent 43 years later.

4 inch scar on lower back after surgery to remove a cist that was the size of a golf ball.

Scar on scrotum from lasered vasectomy.

Best one I've got runs straight down from my chest to the lower abdomen, they removed my belly button at the same time thus I'm spared periodic fluff removal.

One on my chin from when I was being all "look, I'm daddy!" after he'd left his razor on the sink when I was a toddler.

Stab wound on the shoulder. Skinheads.

Small scar on my inner thigh after they threaded a wire through there into my brain.

Much the same with my arse cheek.
I had to have daily dressing changes and over the course of 6 weeks, must have seen 15 different nurses. They all had the pleasure of cleaning, packing and dressing the wound, though the surgeon had the real fun with silver nitrate.

I have two scars on my neck that are often mistaken for love bites. I was two years old when I pulled a boiling hot saucepan of water off the stove which went all over my face, Amazingly they are the only permanent reminders of the nurse having to come in for several weeks to peel my face and rebandage my face.

I have a large scar on my right forearm which was when I was 14 and first self harmed with a knife. I have a few scars across my chest and stomach from similar self harming.

I have a cut across my right eyebrow from an elbow in my boxing days. I believe the guy deliberately missed the punch so he could follow through with the elbow. Hurt like **** as I couldn't see and he was a dirty b*stard.

Tow on my right shins where I did not have shinpads on playing from south east Essex against Wolverhampton schools. Ripped right through my socks.

Scar on my arse where an Alasatin bit me on my bare arse. I was in a pub after hours shagging the landlord's daughter. According to him he heard strange noises downstairs and let his bloody dog loose.

Several scars on my scalp where I dived off a jetty into the sea. My mate was already in the sea and he said the water was up to his chest. Lying git was on his knees. I walked home along Southend seafront aged 12 looking like I had been attacked by a Great White. There was so much blood coming from my head and face where I scrapped it on the stones on the bottom of about two foot of water.

I have three scars, related to playing football.
Fourth was when I had melanoma approx. 3 1/2 years ago. Half of my right ear was sliced off, a skin graft had to be done around my neck and back of the ear for the plastic and re constructive surgery. Had a total of 36 stiches.

Also the bloke that threw the nail was also blind in 1 eye (car crash as kid)

An eye for an eye and all that :lol:

In no particular order of getting them:

1. Base of my right thumb where some kid trod on my hand at school
2. Side of my left calf when I spiked myself trying pole vault (these were the days of cinder tracks and 12mm spikes)
3. Appendix scar (collapsed the day before my 17th birthday).
4. Right elbow - had a gnat bite that never healed, and the skin grew back over it
5. Behind my left ear (chickenpox scar) - popped up in the middle of a sponsored silence at cubs one night (aged about 8 at the time)
6. Bottom of left foot . Had hard fibrous growths which felt like knitting needles shooting up my foot
7, 8, 9 on left knee through various knee surgeries
10, 11, 12 on right knee (as per above)
13. Circumcision scar (done at around 3 days old)
14. Small scar above left eyebrow - was scraping old wallpaper off the wall and the scraper slipped.
15. Loads of various other little scars (picked scabs).

Think that’s all...
