Scarred for Life started about 16 years ago as a single image art project.  I (Ted Meyer) did a print of a friend’s back scar to document her condition.  Over the years that print has turned into a scar series, art shows, museum shows, lectures, story telling, videos and more.

Recently it seemed clear that it might be good to have a single place to write, post, and collect everything that has to do with Scarred for Life.

We are just getting started.  The site is still very much a work in progress, but in the next weeks and months we hope it all comes together to give people who have been through major medical conditions a place to connect and to tell their stories.
