Having to deal with your mistakes is one of the big reasons why tattoos are such a draw for people that have scars left over from the past. Tattoos can be adjusted, resized, or added to cover a wound of any shape or size, so no doubt there are far more examples than we could ever fit on this list.
This example shows us the main character of the video game “Okami,” a wolf who is the incarnation of the sun goddess Amaterasu. Many people find the game to be quite beautiful and uplifting, so people who have gone through traumatic events might be drawn to it.
Be Careful With Axes
We got the shivers looking at this one. If you're ever swinging an ax around for any reason, make sure you know where your feet are. Thankfully, this ax was swung during a competition, so it was as sharp as possible. The scar is still pretty bad, but we're told that the injury didn't actually hurt all that much.
That didn't stop the bleeding, but at least it's better than it could have been. This person decided to mark the occasion with an ax head, which is quite the choice, though we support it. Have to tell those axes who's boss.
Getting Some Work Done
After multiple shoulder dislocations, a guy needs a couple of surgeries to make sure things stay in place. Once he made sure everything was stable and he wouldn't have to go under the knife again, he decided to get a little ink to have some fun. The choice of an undersea welder is an inspired one, and we're not sure why he would pick it, but it's quite an artistic sight.
Hopefully, there isn't a great deal of hair on the chest there, or this person will have chosen a smaller piece of work. Or maybe it's one of those hair seas that we hear so much about.
Facing Your Demons
A sad fact of the matter of tattoos that cover scars is sometimes those scars will be self-inflicted. Our heart goes out to anyone that finds it necessary to do such a thing, and we delight in seeing the tattoos that help people push past whatever challenges they face.
This stirring piece of bodywork might just have given us a chill when we laid eyes on it. A small child's hand embraces a dark, long-nailed fist in an effort to bridge the gap and come to an understanding. There is almost certainly more that went into this than just that, but we can't tell what it is from here.
Imagine the Questions
We're not sure why this person has a scar on his leg in the shape of a carrot with a bite taken out of the side, but now he doesn't have to worry about questions of that manner. He DOES have to worry about people asking him why he has a carrot tattooed on his leg, though, which will inevitably lead to the scar.
The shape of the scar looks almost exactly like a carrot, so of course, the mind will go exactly there, but just look at the detail. Even if there was no scar, this seems like a good piece of ink to add.
