If you took a look at that…arm, we’re going to say you might not have any idea that there was scar tissue hiding underneath. We don’t know where all those scars could have come from, but now we don’t have to wonder about it at all. All we have to do is look at that cool creature of the night and wonder why it might need three eyes.
To better see mice running through the underbrush? To make sure that no rabbits can get away? Maybe he just wants to make sure he doesn’t miss any of the good bird feeders.
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.
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.
Most of the tattoos on this list are for the express purpose of hiding scars. Sometimes they're just there for camouflage, sometimes, they're there to mark the occasion or add a final cap to the look. This one seems to be different. The sharp, colorful dagger looks like it's slicing right through where the scar is.
The scar is from a dog bite – a particularly messy injury, all things considered – and it seems to be on display. We all have different coping methods for something like this, and this is just one of the many ways somebody might deal with something traumatic.
Nobody Ever Has to Know
Here's an interesting fact about the human body – it's pretty elastic. The skin, muscles, and stomach can all stretch and change based on a lot of different factors. Sometimes, however, those parts of the body aren't able to be elastic enough. For instance, this woman has lost a lot of weight, and she has some loose skin – it's something that happens to a lot of people.
Unless she wants to go under the knife, a tattoo seems to be the simplest solution for getting everything shipshape. This flowery design has enough to draw the eye but not too much to get people looking too closely.
