    Yes I did right after I burnt My thumb nail off. Trying to learn over head welding with out gloves. Was not a smart move on My part. After words the pain was so bad that I just shiverd and then proceeded to puke My guts up.

    I have a funky little red burn from a month ago that I got picking up a recently welded on crossmember. Didn't hurt too bad....

    I've gotten pretty painful ones cooking though

    Do you wear a t-shirt all the time? Why not wear a long sleeve so you don't get so many scars /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    who cares?? personally its too damn hot to wear long sleeves all the time. I will start wearing them when I branch my tattoos onto my arms but till then I rarely even wear a shirt... and I'm still white as a ghost /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif Besides long sleeves are just one more thing to set on fire /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif. Heck half the color I get on my skin comes from the light of a welder /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I was rubbing my hand at work last week, just a random not even thinking about it thing, this woman asked if I hurt my hand? I looked at her real blank for a second then held out my arms and hands slowly turning them over showing her the many cuts, scars, burns, scrapes, and dirt on them. I then responded, Which time? My hand is a little scary but thats fine, not like I care.

    Your going to be wearing long sleeves after the arm tattoo's so if you get a burn, it wont wreck the tatoo?

    don't want to f up the tattoo with burns and cuts. That and light from the welder fading them. Though I already put SPF48 on my tattoos as it is....

    Ha! If I wore a long sleeve I'd just ruin the sleeves in a week or so. Damage factor goes way up when I get fabricating.

    I couple scars I extended along with a burn, Little circle burns are ugly, like pock marks.

    I have two symbols cut into my lefthand fingers also

    Other than those and two stupid ones, they are all "accidental"
