20+ People Who Had Their Scars Turned Into Works of Art by Tattoo Artists

Tattoos have long been part of modern-day culture. But not everyone gets them just as part of a fashion trend. Sometimes people want to hide something on their skin with the help of body art. For example, scars after injuries or operations, burns, or birthmarks.

“Addition to scar”

By the way, tattoos can cover up not only scars and birthmarks, but also other unsuccessful tattoos.
