My obsession with cutting is causing me to read anything about it. This book was written for teenagers and is a small introduction to the psychology of self-harm. So, I shouldn't be hard on it. But then it classifies cutting as the opposite of body modification and I don't think they're mutually exclusive categories. You can cut just for emotional pain and you can tattoo just because you think its cool, but you can cut as a tattoo of sorts and to deal with pain.
