Ok, I've seen lots of threads about how-to, and requests for pictures of, and so forth, but not WHY. And I'm really curious. And finally brave/stupid enough to ask Sometimes I look at the scars and think "ok, that's part of the doll's history" or something. My Kenshin has a painted-on scar, but that's because he's a character doll and it's his identifying mark. But sometimes I look at the ones who've been heavily carved and think "ouch!" So... I'm wondering what brings people to want to do that? It certainly would limit your resale market I would think... I don't have anything against this practice, in particular, but I wonder why it appeals to you.
