Scars can be in plenty of different shapes and configurations, which makes tattoos the perfect way to cover them up. Pretty much every tattoo is custom-made for the person that ordered it, so they can easily be adjusted to provide the proper kind of coverage. We see here a set of gnarly scars on what appears to be the upper thigh, but it’s nothing a needle and some ink can’t help.
If the person already has that kind of scar, we bet getting poked a thousand times to cover it up is nothing worth worrying about. There’s already been plenty of pain, but this is for a good thing, not just because of an accident.
Birds are a common ask when it comes to tattoos. Even if you don't have an entire bird, you can just get a single, colorful feather, and the imagery will come to anyone who lays eyes on it. This little tattoo, which covers a scar just as little, has a few very small birds to go along with the bigger feather that makes up most of it.
We don't know what kind of scar that is – we can barely even tell where on the body it is – but now nobody has to worry about it even a little bit.
From the Ashes
The phoenix is a mythological creature that, when it perished, would form back into an egg until its rebirth. The story has been around for a long time, and it's been seen as a story about how even tragedy can create something good – or how you can get back to where you were after anything.
This big, detailed tattoo might just be trying to communicate the same thing if the size of the scar it's covering is any indication. Remember, even if you're on the ground, don't be afraid to fly.
A Bird on the Ankle Is Worth Two in the Bush
We think that's how the saying goes, anyway. What? A hand? You have to work up to getting tattoos on the hand, that hurts quite a bit. This person just wanted a funny little owl to cover up a scar that stands out against the rest of the foot, and that's exactly what we see here.
The branch it's sitting on, the details that the owl has on its feathers, and the pose it's pulling all tell us that someone good at their craft was on-hand to supply this ink – you'll never know there's a scar there.
Making Use of Every Technique Available
The person who got this tattoo could decide on what kind of design to get – go for something intricate and detailed. Something with a bit more simplicity to it? Blocky? Narrow? Well, why not go for all of them and make something truly unique? A silhouette of a powerful deer head with big antlers, some swirls and twirls, and a hanging chain at the bottom.
Each disparate part seems to work in tandem with the others to make a design that not only covers the scars that were there but will have people marveling, too.
