The image on the left might show us a lot of scars, but thanks to the new tattoo, you can hardly see them anymore. The geometric design is inspired, showing us something that manages to be both chaotic and hectic, as well as designed and intricate. We would hazard a guess that some of the lines and shapes came from the scars themselves, which adds yet another layer of meaningful story.
Every part of this design is cool – the fading black shape on the right, the radiating circles at the top and bottom, and the vague ship-like shape
Adding a Little Bit of Magic
It's hard to see the scars that these tattoos are working to cover – though that is the point, of course. Tinkerbell from “Peter Pan” and the entire Disney universe are here making sure people pay attention to her, not the unfortunate wounds that just won't go away.
It looks as if the tattoo on the left was used to cover a scar (you can see it in the stardust), and the one on the right might have been added just to balance things out. You can't have Tinkerbell on just one leg. Everybody knows that.
A Long Time in the Chair
Getting all that ink in one single tattoo must have been quite the trial. We don't know if it was a single session or several, but that's a lot of needles. It looks like there are quite a number of scars to obscure, however, we can't figure out what is the design.
We're not exactly sure, but we have a few guesses. It looks like it could be the side of a mountain, with veins in the rock. It looks like it could be from far above, showing us a number of rivers. Likely it's just an abstract design, but it's still cool.
We Need a Magnifying Glass
If you can make out what that teeny tiny lettering says, drop us a line and let us know. No doubt the reason for such a long scar directly on the spine is a rough story, but it was probably for surgery – and if you're opening up the entire spine, it was probably an important one.
We'd love to tell you what the tattoo means, but we just can't make it out. It looks like it's also in a different language, which adds another barrier to our understanding. We assume that it's something very important.
Seems Like an Apt Choice
If you're looking for something to help cover your scars but you still want a dark and dreary look, Edward Scissorhands seems like the perfect pick. If anybody asks, you could just make a joke about how the scars are all his fault.
The details on the character and the way it's been added to this leg also help to camouflage the scars to make them a little less noticeable. It might be a little Hot Topic for our tastes, but it seems like the kind of character that would sympathize with someone who has so many scars.
