Birds are a common ask when it comes to tattoos. Even if you don’t have an entire bird, you can just get a single, colorful feather, and the imagery will come to anyone who lays eyes on it. This little tattoo, which covers a scar just as little, has a few very small birds to go along with the bigger feather that makes up most of it.
We don’t know what kind of scar that is – we can barely even tell where on the body it is – but now nobody has to worry about it even a little bit.
The Knee of Tiger
Not exactly the song that Survivor played, but it's close enough for our needs. It looks like somebody had to have their knee worked on, and it left quite a collection of scars on the joint. Well, nothing a little bit of ink can't fix. Or a big bit of ink – you can't make a tiger face that fierce out of just a short session.
The face might not be the most realistic we've seen, but it has a nice cartoony feel that works with the angle at which the face is. Maybe that was necessary because of the movement that the face will go through, being right on the knee.
Everybody Has Something
By the time you've reached adulthood, there's a pretty good chance you have at least some kind of scar on your body. Maybe it's from a car accident, maybe it's from a run-in with some hot oil, or maybe it's from one of a million other reasons. Everybody has something.
There are plenty of reasons to get a tattoo to cover a scar in that case. This person has chosen to get a couple of patches of mermaid scales on her legs to take away from the power of the scars and get some fun color.
From the Ashes
The phoenix is a mythological creature that, when it perished, would form back into an egg until its rebirth. The story has been around for a long time, and it's been seen as a story about how even tragedy can create something good – or how you can get back to where you were after anything.
This big, detailed tattoo might just be trying to communicate the same thing if the size of the scar it's covering is any indication. Remember, even if you're on the ground, don't be afraid to fly.
Scars can be in plenty of different shapes and configurations, which makes tattoos the perfect way to cover them up. Pretty much every tattoo is custom-made for the person that ordered it, so they can easily be adjusted to provide the proper kind of coverage. We see here a set of gnarly scars on what appears to be the upper thigh, but it's nothing a needle and some ink can't help.
If the person already has that kind of scar, we bet getting poked a thousand times to cover it up is nothing worth worrying about. There's already been plenty of pain, but this is for a good thing, not just because of an accident.
