We don’t know for sure if this person’s knee scar is because of a meeting in the water with one of these deadly sea creatures, but it’s a fairly unpleasant scar one way or another. No scars are very “fun” to look at, but this one has an extra sort of ick factor that can turn the stomach.
Why not cover it with a shark? It’s a solution to all of life’s problems. Being able to incorporate a little bit of the scar tissue into the actual design is a nice touch to make it a little more personal.
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.
The Work of a Dream
A circular little scar right between the shoulder blades could have come from a lot of different things – surgery, a falling icicle, a poorly thrown can opener – but the reason for the scar doesn't matter that much when you have such a good choice of tattoo to add to it.
Just like the Dreamworks logo, the tattoo has a person sitting on the end of the crescent moon and dangling a line down to catch a dream. The lad appears to be of the Missouri Tom Sawyer type, but there are a number of things he could catch down there, not just fish.
We're Taking You With Us
Being able to take a scar and actually incorporate it into a unique tattoo design takes at least a little bit of thought. A long, straight scar such as this one (which seems like it's from some sort of surgery, but don't quote us on that) has any number of possible interpretations, and we applaud whoever designed this for their fun bit of ink.
Actually, using the scar as part of the design is an uncommon option since most people would rather cover it up. However, this scar is quite big, making that tactic a lot more difficult. Prepare to meet some little green men, lady.
