A lot of tattoos tend to be very…vibrant. Energetic. Some might even say busy. That’s for a couple of reasons, of course. They are there to be noticed, after all. This one, however, is a little different. Instead of big, bright flowers or skulls full of black fire, all we see on this ankle is a woman sitting by a placid lake, watching the sun go down.
She could be sitting on the dock, the bank, or inside a canoe, but it’s clear this is a place of relaxation. Especially since the tattoo is now covering a big, hard-to-miss scar.
It's Gotta be Under There Somewhere
Well, color us impressed. We've been looking and looking, and we can't see any evidence of a scar that couldn't be explained away by post-tattoo inflammation. There's a little bit of redness, but as we said, that could just be because of the coloring that the tattoo has! Well, one way or another, it's a great little dragonfly that we assume is pulling time to cover up a scar that needs to be hidden.
Unless you're inspecting that upper thigh as close as this camera is getting, you have no chance of seeing the underlying skin damage. And we bet few people will be getting this close.
A Tattoo Is Worth a Thousand Words
And there are plenty of tattoos to talk about here. We see at least three separate additions to these scarred arms that seem like they have plenty of tales to tell, but we may never know what they are. One arm has most of the ink, with a collection of what appears to be feathers wrapped around the words “Still I rise.”
There is a little more lettering, but being in Spanish (or a similar language) makes it harder to make out. Finally, a small fetal shape with a red heart wrapped in a stethoscope. Each of them seems like a long tale to tell.
What's Up, Dude?
This chill sea creature is not only telling us that things are ready for some fun, but it also covers up a little bit of unsightly scar tissue, which should be visible in the second image. We say it should be visible, but we're honestly having a hard time picking any out other than the normal wrinkles that will form under the arm.
You can see a little bit of white tissue, but it must be in shadow because there doesn't really seem to be much there. Still, that is no reason not to get a sea turtle tattoo.
Barely Even Noticeable
On a list like this one, for every picture, you're probably going to be looking for two things. Obviously, you want to see the tattoo, but you're probably looking for the scars, too. Maybe it's the angle, maybe it's the lighting, or maybe it's something else, but the scars in this picture are a lot harder to make out than in some of the other pictures here.
Maybe we just can't tear our eyes away from the rad Mother Mary, wreathed in black flames and barbed wire and ready to intercede. It's just the kind of thing that should cover a set of scars.
