Scarman was created from some of my scars, but he represents all of us.  We all have scars.  Some we can see and some we can't.

Every scar on Scarman is real and each scar has a story behind it.  Your story of scars is unique and only yours.  We can grow from our scars, from our struggles, and from our failures.

Celebrate the wonderful you for coming so far and by being perfect just the way you are!
