Tattooing has developed exponentially in the past few years, and there are some talented artists that can tattoo over or with scars. It’s impossible to make the scars go away completely, but using scar-removal products won’t hurt at all, rather repair the skin. Visit some shops and find an artist who is comfortable tattooing over scars, they’ll hook you up with epic art. Your scars are a part of your past, but just like you’re doing with your mental health, you can turn them into something beautiful and powerful. Often times, the art over scars will line up with texture, so if your scars are long a tree might hide them well, or if they’re across tigers are a traditional choice as they symbolize courage and will (like overcoming self-harm, go you!) and can be tattooed in multiple styles, your artist will work with you on ideas and figure out what’s best and provide more ideas. Happy tattooing!
