If there is a policy I would like implemented is policies against users who self harm in order to create art, otherwise known as blood art.

This isn’t because I’m squeamish or what not, I browse this site with the blood and gore at its peak. It’s just wrong and sad that no one even tries to take it down and ask the user if they are okay.

Some have even linked videos of the process so it’s definitely blood and self harm.

How come I’ve reported these but no one bothers to check on them further. :( They may one day break an artery in the process and kill them selves.

I have some friends who self-harm for their art, and they are fine. Or, perhaps I should say they are at least as fine as everyone else who self-harms because that is how they cope, but they also are making art.

Thank you for being concerned about them, but whatever the materials they are using – even if it’s their own blood – they are still making art.

The specific image that you reported, this one:



Is absolutely a work of art, and I’m very happy that the artist has made it possible for us to share their work here.

Whether people should self harm in the creation of their art is a question that certainly should be asked, but for myself I would say that it is a form of art that has existed for as long as there have been people, and I feel pieces of art like Björk’s Pagan Poetry [warning: graphic self-harm that might even leave YOU with scars] and some of the work that Kopaleo has done are absolutely art, and should be shared.

That doesn’t mean I think you should have to see them – please filter the appropriate tags and you won’t have to see them any more. And if you have a friend who is self-harming, please do talk with them about your concern. But remember that if they are doing so to cope, then removing their coping mechanism means that they won’t be coping.

@Ciaran
But that’s the issue when a therapist asks someone why they do it they say,”to cope,” but that doesn’t make it okay, just like drinking alcohol isn’t a good coping mechanism either. And that artist has comfermed being in a depressive state too. Then people in the comments go,”that’s cool!” And they go cut some more to make more. Any psychologist would tell them it’s unhealthy. The more of these they make the more it harms their psyche, it’s a never ending cycle. It’s a bad addiction.

Coping should involve being nice to oneself, and there is ironically an mlp episode that speaks of this topic. In “Do princess dream of magic sheep”, Luna creates the tantabus to cope with her negative emotions, she harms herself. We then see the whole town help their princesses in the end even though it technically wasn’t there businesses. But they did it because…Giving help
that’s not asked for… is what
makes a true hero!

I understand you want to help them feel better, and not get in their face about it but leaving them to think it’s okay only makes it worse. They must know that someone is there for them to help them. If you see something say something.

I think the important things to take into account here are:

Derpibooru (and its users) is/are not the mental health police
People are, to an extent, responsible for their own allostasis
Sweeping the problem under the rug (deleting the images) is not how you solve it

I don’t wish to sweep under the rug, I was going for the opposite, I just thought it would be sweet to delete, state why, and be ready to help.

this is my last post regarding this.
