Here we have two pictures side by side, and both of them show us something big. The first one is of the scar, a gruesome example of how much damage can linger on the surface of your skin after something has happened. The picture on the right is what this guy eventually got to cover the scar. A big, colorful fish of some kind.
It looks kind of like a koi, but there is plenty of other fish it could be – we aren’t experts on tattoo fish. You can still see the scar on the tail since it’s hard to totally obscure something of that size, but it sure helps.
Nothing Left but Skin and Bones
Is it just a coincidence that so many scars end up looking like the bones that lie underneath the skin? Is it just the way it knits together, or does it actually have something to do with the bones? Regardless, this person wanted to do something special with the curved scar on his arm.
He or the tattoo artist or someone else came up with the idea of adding skeletal bits to either side, creating this look. That bony good boy is on his way to whisper a little secret into this guy's ear, though it's probably just about food.
Helping to Heal
Tattoos are, in their own way, kind of a scar. A small incision that just so happens to be filled with ink. Just like a regular scar, the body can't heal them, but that's a good thing for many people. A lot of tattoo artists jump at the chance to cover up scars of any kind with their work, and this intricate and detailed collection of swirls and bugs is no exception.
We're told this is an unfinished piece, and we wonder what else could be added. The amount of work put into each little detail is striking. It doesn't seem like it needs color, but maybe they'll add something like that.
You Can Fly Again
There are some parts of the body that have trouble healing when they get scars. Especially if the person in question is no longer in his or her youth, some scars will have more trouble healing than others. The knees, which so often have to have surgeries to repair joint damage, are a common place to see them. That, of course, is where a tattoo will come in.
This person has decided to add one of the more common tattoo elements to a leg – a feather and a few birds. Unless you inspect the leg closely, there's no evidence of scar tissue.
The Best Tattoo Ever
There are a lot of tattoos on this list. A lot of great ink that someone has chosen to cover up an unfortunate mark. None of them could possibly compare to the absolute majesty that is this work of art. We want everything to have the cowboy frog now.
Every movie, every video game, and every poem should include a reference to this good old boy. Even songs should throw it in there, just to make sure people don't forget. And, of course, if you need to cover a scar, then this tattoo is the optimum choice. People won't care about the scars anymore.
