The Bad Influence



On self-mutilation

Design by Sana Rose

Before I decided to glide
and dig the blade,
I had sliced
my soul, minced
it to a million
little parts,
so that once the cuts
got deeper,
the pain would dissipate
into something



We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
