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.
Just a Bit of Art
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
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.
Everybody's Favorite Space Whale
For some reason, space whales are quite popular. You'll see them in all kinds of works, from movies and shows to video games and tattoo art. Just think about the fourth “Star Trek” movie. It's all about space whales. Well, this bit of ink uses that strange sea and space creature to make it a little less obvious there are scars on that piece of skin.
It's a nice design – it uses constellations, stars, planets, and a whale to obscure the marks. Keep swimming, space whale, eventually, you'll reach home. But you're a mammal, how do you...you know what, we're overthinking again.
Showing Off Her Curves
The story behind this tattoo and the scar are one and the same. In fact, both of the stalks of grain mean something that will be quite obvious once we reveal a single detail: scoliosis. Yes, the long, bent stalk is the original shape of this young woman's spine, while the shorter, straighter stalk is the current shape of her spine.
There's no doubt that there was plenty of pain and suffering required to get to this point, so a little more for some tattoos will be nothing. It's a meaningful tattoo that doesn't exactly cover the scars, but we think it counts on this list anyway.
