An individual who self-mutilates by laceration, as described in other entries. Although there are exceedingly rare examples of legitimate cutters, a vast majority (Johnson and Williams 2005, et al.) are simply attention seekers who will inflict very minor injury on themselves in imitation of more serious self-mutilation (Ibid.). In recent years, as media coverage and general societal awareness increase, self-mutilation has become more common than in the past, due much in part to "copycat crimes" wherein people imitate the mutilatory actions they've observed. Although it can be signs of a serious mental illness, one must take caution before assuming that self-mutilation is in itself a signifier of mental disturbance.
Some mutilators (or cutters) have a serious mental illness; others simply don't.

A person who cuts them self with razorblades or knives (or any sharp object) to feel "relief" from day to day pressures, relationship problems, or troubles with parents. Usually blamed on a parent or mental health issue, but is almost always learned from a close or older friend, who the cutter looks up to This gives them a bond, or a common problem that they can use as way of relating to each other. (The cutter will never admit to this for fear that a parent or loved one will tell them not to hang out with that person anymore).
The cuts usually start out as scratches but can escalate to deep lacerations, the deeper cuts and scars represent how "hardcore" the person is and how severe their problems are. These same people usually minimize or belittle the people who only "scratch" themselves.
Since Abuse or mental illness remove responsibility from the cutter, these are the first things a cutter blames for their actions. The parent who demands good grades is "too controlling" or "can never be satisfied" or "thinks I'm not good enough." The mental illness (bi-polar, manic depression) requires medication and the cutter is really the innocent victim.
Some cutters hide their cuts and some don’t. A quick look at MySpace or Facebook photos will tell you what kind of cutter the person is. The attention seeking cutter will always have pics of scars or poems with innuendos about cutting.
Cutter: I cant believe my boyfriend wont text me back, I hope I don't cut again. (but if I do, Ill tell him) I think he likes another girl. My life is horrible!
David: That sux, I'm going to only brothers memorial Saturday, he was shot while serving in Iraq. He was like the father I never had. He wanted me to get good grades and go to college, I loved him.
Cutter: yeah my asshole father bugs me about grades too, no wonder I'm all screwed up.
David: I'm sorry life dealt you such a terrible hand.
Cutter: me too
