How bad is this scar?

The photo is in my avatar. I got the scar at work. Someone accidently flung some acid my way and it went over my safety equipment. I definitely think it looked better before!

My question is more to do with the "first impressions" and what your assumptions would be on seeing me.

  • Doesn't look bad at all. My first impression would be, "ouch! I wonder what happened" but it wouldn't be anything towards your looks. You still look fine.

  • ... how does one accidentally fling acid at a coworker's face? what kind of acid was it?

    your scar isn't bad at all, doesn't detract or anything. my first impression would be that... something happened, I don't know what, to produce that scar lol.

    • It was in some tubing and he let go of the tube and it uncoiled. It was concentrated nitric.

    • It's about three months old now. I managed to wash it off immediately and prevent it getting in my eye.

    • really glad it didn't get in your eye... that would have SUCKED. :x

      anyways dude, don't worry about the scar- no big deal

  • That looks more like a birthmark to me so I wouldn't ask about it or think it was weird. Nothing bad about it!

  • well, my first impression is.. i don't know.. i don't care whether you have a scar or not, i quite indifferent about these things, i consider a person's personality more. plus it doesn't look that bad too me but yeah i know it has caused you pain. and it's not in the middle of your face.. so.. and maybe it's just you that is too conscious about it. i have an operation scar on my eyelid, and it's something i can't do anything about, so i don't care even if sometimes people make comments unknowingly, i dont even wear make up most of time. there are so many things you can do nowadays to make scars fade or disappear completely, you should try maybe.

  • I'd wonder how you got it, but other than that I wouldn't care. Scars are normal.

  • Honestly, it doesn't look bad at all. Those things would usually make no difference to me. Sure I might think something happened but won't effect first impressions whatsoever

  • Defiantly could have been worse, I would say it isn't bad considering what could have happened.
