We Want To See Your Scar-Covering Tattoos

Show us the photos of your awesome, inspiring ink.

Tattoos are beautiful body art, period. But when they're covering a scar, there's an extra story there, or another layer of meaning.


Maybe you got something big and colorful to cover scars from self-harm.

Like this amazing lion is doing.

Or maybe you got a tattoo to cover scars from a mastectomy.

Or to cover the scars from another surgery.

Or maybe you had a mark from some kind of injury, and now there's a tattoo there.

Whether your tattoos are big or small, colorful or not, and no matter what kind of scars they cover up, we want to see them.
