Bleeding is used as a metaphor when it comes to this group, meaning any kind of unwanted emotions/thoughts/feelings
The razor blade in our icon is a symbol. It stands for whatever it may be that is causes you to "bleed"
Please know. That I did not create this group to encourage any type of self injury, OR suicide. This is simply a sanctuary for people to come share their darker/more emotional art in life, without being judged or harshly criticized...
So, what all is allowed here you might ask...
Dealing with Sexuality
Any type of abuse
Self Injury/Suicide Related
Other Types of Illness (Cancer, MD, etc)
I think you get the point. ANYTHING that brings you down, or even makes you who you are.
No harassment of any type will be permitted. Though punishment depends on the severity of what was said, the first offense usually earns a warning. Anything after would probably be a boot from the group.
Any form of art is accepted. (literature, photography, traditional, etc.) If you feel like another folder should be added, just say the word! The submission limit is 3 pieces per day.PLEASE SUBMIT TO THE RIGHT FOLDERS. I wouldn't rip your head off if you didn't, because I know mistakes happen, but I may nibble at you a little if it becomes a habit (:
You can submit favorites until your heart explodes, BUT it cannot be your art.
If you have any questions, or feel like something has been left out, please do not be shy!
