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.
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
Let's Make Things Cute
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.
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.
A Tattoo Is Worth a Thousand Words
And there are plenty of tattoos to talk about here. We see at least three separate additions to these scarred arms that seem like they have plenty of tales to tell, but we may never know what they are. One arm has most of the ink, with a collection of what appears to be feathers wrapped around the words “Still I rise.”
There is a little more lettering, but being in Spanish (or a similar language) makes it harder to make out. Finally, a small fetal shape with a red heart wrapped in a stethoscope. Each of them seems like a long tale to tell.
