Tattoos come in all shapes and sizes, just like people, and sometimes those people want to be a different size. Their bodies might not always adjust in a way that looks the way they want, but there are a couple of procedures that can be done to help out.
Some of those procedures leave behind scars such as this intense injury, but that’s where a tattoo comes in. Even if it’s just stretch marks that won’t go away, a tattoo is a great way to add to your personal flair and keep yourself looking your best.
Simplicity at Its Finest
Getting a little bit of ink on the ankle as a statement is one of the more common ways people get into getting inked, but most of them are just to add a little bit of color to your look. This person decided to let the tattoo pull some double duty by getting it to cover up an attention-grabbing scar.
We're not sure what kind of scar that is, but it looks like it could be a burn. Still, with the addition of a cute little bird in front of a cloud, nobody will even have to know that the scar is there.
From Top to Bottom
It's obvious that the bigger and more complicated a tattoo is, the longer it takes, the more pain you must endure, and the more you'll have to pay. That being the case, it must have been quite the session getting this intricate and large tattoo added to more than half an arm.
As we can see, there are quite a number of scars to cover up, but the skeletal details mesh with them quite nicely. It looks like it might not even be finished just yet, and we wish we could see the finished product. It would make for a bomb metal album cover.
The Healing Power of Nature
Just because something has a scar – be it a bit of skin or a piece of land – doesn't mean there can't be any good things that come out of it. People who find our hectic modern life too stressful flee to the relative peace of the wild woods in order to get away from it all, and there are few places more naturally relaxing than a forest.
This person has decided to cover up a scar (we believe we can see it among the roots near the bottom) with a calming scene of pine trees. It's simple, it's beautiful, and it's meaningful.
Getting Plenty of Work Done
That's quite the amount of scars to cover, which means the end result is quite the tattoo, creating an entire sleeve of burning villages and angry German words (We can't work out the full translation – it seems to be “revolt in the heads” or something).
More scars mean more tattoo work, and honestly, this looks like the kind of tattoo that is built for covering an arm full of scars. There are lots of shadows and a good amount of detail, and the buildings can use the scars as part of the structure, like brickwork. We bet this took a while, but it seems like it was worth it.
