This is a great example of a tattoo that goes from the elbow to the wrist and covers up some unfortunate scarring. Go ahead and try to find another tattoo of this size that features a magical raccoon gathering enchanted wildflowers. We’ll wait.
We really like the work of shading and shadow on this tattoo – look at the area around the raccoon. It really gives the animal weight and form. It makes it look like it’s far more than just your normal raccoon. This raccoon has been around the block a couple of times – he knows where all the good flowers are.
We'd Love to Know Why This Was the Choice
We guess a cartoonish bomb about to explode isn't the strangest kind of tattoo we've ever seen. Even on this list. But it's still an interesting choice. Especially on...such an interesting spot. Well, that's where the scar is, so that's where the tattoo has to go.
Additionally, we wonder why the scar is there. Mad, knife-wielding gnomes, perhaps? And this person wasn't paying enough attention to attacks from the rear. That sort of event also kind of goes along with the old style of explosive that we see here. No matter the case, this is quite the backstory.
Tying Things Up
We don't know why a person would have a scar all the way across his chest other than some kind of surgery, but we bet there's any kind of scar you can imagine out there somewhere. Well, this guy has this one, which means he needed a special kind of tattoo to cover it up.
He chose a braided rope going all the way across his chest, starting under his arms, knotted in the middle in the shape of a heart. It's hard to miss, which means that any time this guy is going shirtless, people are going to wonder.
Taking a Walk Through the Wild Side
That's quite the long arm you have there. If we want to cover that entire arm with a nice, colorful image from the elbow all the way to the wrist, we'll have to come up with something that has so much overlapping detail that no one will ever think there are scars underneath.
How about a magical purple potion surrounded by flowers and leaves and blossoms? Yeah, we think that will do the trick. That isn't even the finished product – once it's done, it's going to have a lot more color
Let's Make Things Cute
Scars are not cute. We don't think that's a very shocking thing to say. They're sudden, they're wrinkly, they don't have the right color, and they don't really ever go away. So, what better way to obscure them than to get some tattoos that are, in fact, cute? Like this person, who now has little winged kitties playing and gamboling on her arm. As well as a tree branch with some fruit on it.
They look kind of like lemons but also a little bit like pears for some reason. Without the color, it's hard to figure that part out. Still. Very cute.
