Scars are not cute. We don’t think that’s a very shocking thing to say. They’re sudden, they’re wrinkly, they don’t have the right color, and they don’t really ever go away. So, what better way to obscure them than to get some tattoos that are, in fact, cute? Like this person, who now has little winged kitties playing and gamboling on her arm. As well as a tree branch with some fruit on it.
They look kind of like lemons but also a little bit like pears for some reason. Without the color, it’s hard to figure that part out. Still. Very cute.
That's Some Nice Shading Right There
This is a great example of a tattoo that goes from the elbow to the wrist and covers up some unfortunate scarring. Go ahead and try to find another tattoo of this size that features a magical raccoon gathering enchanted wildflowers. We'll wait.
We really like the work of shading and shadow on this tattoo – look at the area around the raccoon. It really gives the animal weight and form. It makes it look like it's far more than just your normal raccoon. This raccoon has been around the block a couple of times – he knows where all the good flowers are.
Taking a Walk Through the Wild Side
That's quite the long arm you have there. If we want to cover that entire arm with a nice, colorful image from the elbow all the way to the wrist, we'll have to come up with something that has so much overlapping detail that no one will ever think there are scars underneath.
How about a magical purple potion surrounded by flowers and leaves and blossoms? Yeah, we think that will do the trick. That isn't even the finished product – once it's done, it's going to have a lot more color
A Lot of Work Required
These scars, likely from something like chicken pox, cover a wide area on the leg, which means this person has to get a big tattoo to make sure it's all covered. This is one of the bigger tattoos we've seen on this list, and we bet that there's plenty of work that went into it. The detail and layering alone must have taken hours.
We can see it both right after it was applied (the middle image) and after all the inflammation has receded (the rightmost image), we see that this big set of ink is something that anybody could be proud of.
It's Gotta be Under There Somewhere
Well, color us impressed. We've been looking and looking, and we can't see any evidence of a scar that couldn't be explained away by post-tattoo inflammation. There's a little bit of redness, but as we said, that could just be because of the coloring that the tattoo has! Well, one way or another, it's a great little dragonfly that we assume is pulling time to cover up a scar that needs to be hidden.
Unless you're inspecting that upper thigh as close as this camera is getting, you have no chance of seeing the underlying skin damage. And we bet few people will be getting this close.
