Self-Harm and tattoos in BPD

I read that people with borderline personality disorder frequently have multiple tattoos.

She started out with one. Now in less than a year my daughter has seven tattoos. She stated that it was like an addiction and that she couldn’t stop. She likes the pain!

The first report of tattooing used as a form of emotional self-regulation was documented by Psychologists in America.

When my daughter got her first two tattoos I never thought of it as a form of self-harm, but now as she gets more and more, what I read makes complete sense to me.

I do hope that she gets some help to deal with the self-harm before her entire body is covered in tattoos.

Feeling helpless!
