    'mmeomo'? You mean emo?

    Well there're two possible reasons. Since the emo fad revolves around a vain 'image' of raccoon-striped hair, snakebite piercings and eyeliner, most emos that cut themselves are probably doing it for attnetion.

    But those that cut themselves for their own 'benefit' do it so the physical pain they experience overrides the inner, emotional turmoil they experience. Plus, once the pain resides, the chemical your body produces provides a euphoric feeling. So it's similar to why people get baked off their face. To escape reality.

    Hope that helped.

    well, people who have been labled as emo dont always cut themselves. emo is short for emotional, and cutting yourself is one way of dealing with your emotions, even thiugh its not always the safest way to do so. and yes, it does hurt when we do it, but to us, its feels a lot better than the pain that we felt when we were upset. it relieves all the internal pain, by carving out your problems and replacing it with real pain. and when we feel real pain, it gets our minds off of everything else.
