How deep does a cut need to be to leave a scar?

Look at your forearm. Now look at the complete opposite side of your arm. The section of the arm between your elbow and the top of your hand. How deep does a cut in this section of skin need to be before it leaves a permanent scar? How deep does a cut have to be before it leaves a temporary scar? Thanks.
I’m 5 foot 8 inches, weighing in at 135 pounds. My arms are quite skinny, I’m definitely not the muscular type. My wrists are about 4 inches wide and about 2 3/4 inches thick if that helps…?

    Well when I had a wee issue with self harming, I only needed to stratch myself and i can still see the scars.

    Are you trying to do scar tattoos? cause some of those are done with actual burning tools.
    presides with those kinds of tattoos ( the cutting ones) they actually take a chunk out just above the muscle layer. you are not giving enough information also, do you have thick arms, thin arms? but if your trying to do a design i would see a pro.
    You don’t want to go so deep you cut something important like a thick vein, muscle tissue etc… end up with T-rex arms.
