okay, i have a few noticeable ones from cutting on both forearms - for a long time i never wore short sleeves at all (i felt fortunate that head doesn't bother me.) over time some wore off a little bit, then eventually i just started wearing short sleeves again. 

i also have needle related scar marks owing to some drug abuse problems, but those are a lot less noticeable. 

i'm not sure what triggered it when all of a sudden i just didn't feel awkward - it was just a long time since i'd given myself any of them, and the feelings that led to them seemed really distant. as for how i think other people react, i don't know, though for the most part i rarely wear short sleeves still and i figure that not a lot of people notice them.
