Yes. I always use matches. I have not self-injured before because i couldn’t find any. I always burn the match and then blow it out and try to time when it will be the perfect “heat”. I always burn myself on the same wrist and I have an ongoing pattern. I have made new patterns, burning in between old scars. I recently did it and burned on top of an old scar because I felt the untouched skin surrounding what I have was… out of the right area.
