Could you please give me some more info on self stitching? I find it extremely interesting and I'd love to learn more about it and eventually give it a shot
Hi Anon! I’ll try to explain it to the best of my ability since it’s so difficult to find information on it due to its rarity.
The first thing that should be known about self-stitching (also known as skin-sewing, self-sewing, etc) is that it is NOT a a form of self-harm. It is a body modification that can be temporary.
One of the best features of body-sewing is that it can be safely done for free at home, with just a needle and thread, color of your choice!
A good way to safely perform skin sewing at home is with a super small sewing needle. The smaller, the better in my opinion. It makes it much easier to pierce the skin while getting the large part of the needle and thread-knot through without messing up. But make ABSOLUTE SURE that the needle is sterilized just in case you pierce through too deep, or enter your bloodstream.
For areas like your palms or soles of your feet (or anywhere with callous) it’s easy to sew through the callous. From my own personal experience, it’s relatively painless as long as your don’t accidentally go too deep. If you notice you’re drawing blood or an excess amount, you may not be doing it correctly. Be very careful if you’re doing sensitive areas like the eyes, mouth, or near veins.
To remove, either pull out the thread from one stitch to another, or you can cut the thread and pull it out piece by piece.
A lot of people practice sewing their eyes or mouth shut, but that’s a little risky.
Something great about skin sewing is that it barely scars at all. In fact, there may be no scars at all if you’re doing it correctly. :) Also, if you doubt you’re artistic ability, you can sketch a design on your skin with washable marker and trace it over while doing the sewing.
That’s about all the info I can think of at the moment. If you have any other questions feel free to ask. There might be some things I didn’t cover.
Looking into skin stitching after seeing it on Tokyo Ghoul!(yay Juuzo). I remember doing something similar in highschool but it was only through the first layer of skin and it wasn’t really a design (my mom lost her shit and sent me to the school counselor) But , recently I’ve been wondering if this is actually a real thing people do. I kinda wanna try it …….maybe….?!
Apparently I learned skin sewing. I did it on my foot. Don’t sow on places where the outer skin is thin or weak. Doing it on the foot or palm is recommended. Always sow on the epidermis. Never below because… Well your going to prick yourself and it will hurt. Skin sewing isn’t supposed to hurt. It is painless. It’s temporary and easy to pluck off. Overall skin sewing can be safe IF you do it correctly..
Made from the hides of different arctic animals the qaspeq is still prevalent in our Yupik- Aleut culture. The ruff typically made of a combination of wolverine and wolf fur which represents the sun with the silver strips of wolf fur emitting outwards to represent the rays. Although not many people of the younger generation own a full qaspeq we still hold up with the tradition of adding a fur ruff to a more modern jacket or parka for added warmth.
Animals are held in high regard within our culture so waste of any kind is looked down upon. When an animal is sacrificed for human use, it is critical for every part of the animal to be used for good use and to be respected in every aspect so as to not anger the animal’s spirit. The meat is used for food, the hide is used for clothing ,oil for heat and the bones for shelter.
Have a Great Need for more Scenes with Allura and Coran being grossed out by human culture.
Especially stitches. I mean, sewing skin back together with a needle like they are piece of living cloth?! WHAT A BARBARIC TORTURE!
Now imagine one of the paladin gets a bad wound while out scouting on a mission. They can’t get back to the Castle for a while. Luckily all of them have had basic Garrison first aid training and know how to do stitches. Allura is there and is absolutely horrified. Basically the Brooklyn 99 scene happens where the person being stitches up is the one comforting the unharmed person that’s supposed to be helping with the stitches.
Bonus if it’s Lance being stitched up by Keith and Lance is both comforting Allura who is freaking out and berating Keith for not being kinder to poor Allura.
Allura: Oh my, this is disgusting! I can’t watch you humans torture yourself anymore! HOW ARE SO CALM ABOUT KEITH DOING THIS TO YOU, LANCE?!”
Keith: First the last time, I”m not torturing him! I’M SAVING HIS LIFE!
Lance: Allura, don’t worry. Everything is fine, you’re doing a great job. Keith, be nice to her! It’s her first time with stitches!
Keith: SHE’S NOT EVEN GETTING ANY STITCHES! YOU’RE THE ONE BLEEDING EVERYWHERE!
Allura: YOUR QUIZNAKING NEEDLE PIECING HIS SKIN ISN’T HELPING! Oh I’m going to be sick…
I think the idea of skin sewing is a very artistic idea and I have tried it before. But my friends took it as a form of self harm and if my family found out I did it they would freak. How could I deal with these types of people?
I dealt with a similar experience when a cousin found out and their reaction kind of made me feel ashamed almost, after I was so proud of my work. The truth is, you can’t really force anyone to accept what they don’t fully understand. All you can do in the mean time is reassure those around you that you’re safe and you mean no harm. (Repetition may be necessary!) I hope this helps a little bit. Good luck! :)
Warnings: The reader is injured, stitches, mentions of a body, blood, some swearing.
Summary: The Reader comes home from the hunt injured and Dean stitches her up.

Eventually you did get up, leaving the warmth and comfort of the bed – and Dean – and dragging two grumpy Winchesters out the door, resigning them to your same chilly fate. You made sure to be dressed and ready to go before Sam woke up, not wanting him to get any premature ideas about something going on between you and his brother - not when you didn’t even know if there was anything to get ideas about. You didn’t even know if you wanted there to be.
You still held strong in your belief that getting involved with a hunter was a bad idea, that it would only end in heartbreak for both involved. But despite that, despite the fact that you’d consoled friends more times than you could count after the loss a loved one on a hunt gone wrong, you couldn’t shake your feelings for Dean. Couldn’t shake the idea that he might feel the same way.
And if he did, didn’t you owe it to yourself to try?
At any rate, you had more pressing issues at the moment – like, for example, the four long, bleeding gashes running down your leg.
