Harming yourself usually leads to deep scars both internal and external.
This artsy way helps you get rid of those scars on the outside by covering them up with Tattoos.
If you’ve ever been on a receiving end of a sharp object and it left you scarred, this just might be the creative solution to your problem.
It’s fascinating how body art can be used to draw attention to yourself, and in some cases draw attention away from things you don’t want people to see.
I trust that this gallery of tattoo ideas will help and inspire you, and in the end find a unique idea to cover your scars.
Self inflicted scars
There is a saying “Life happens”, and that’s the absolute truth. Some of us react different to situations, some good and some bad.
But in the end we are all human, we make mistakes and we have to live with them.
Whatever the reason might be, hurting yourself most likely leaves scars on your skin.
These can be removed or rather fixed with laser and some might even say with some natural remedies but in general they are there to stay.
Looking at these scars everyday might be a reminder, but other people might not see it your way. Let’s face it, people judge you by your outwards before they get to know you.
To the people who don’t know you, you are what your appearance tells them.
BUT if you aren’t bother then frankly I’m not sure what you are doing here reading about Tattoo cover ups :P.
Getting a Tattoo over your scars is a unique and creative way to move on from the past.

Is this for me?
Now that’s something you need to decide for yourself, unless you are still living with your guardians or parents, then you need to talk to them.
You will in most cases still feel the edges of the scar underneath the tattoo, but at least you will have to look close to see it.
Also in some damaged skin areas that have been caused by surgery, the ink might not take and stay as on other areas of your body.
Then there’s the pain factor. Some people love it, some hate it and majority just take it.
