People get tattoos for all sorts of reasons. Maybe they have a word or a phrase that means something important to them. Maybe there is a specific image that symbolizes something significant in their lives. Maybe they just really like how tattoos look and want some of their own. Whatever the reason, I happen to think tattoos are really cool.
The tattoos that are shared in this list serve at least one function: to cover or celebrate (or both!) scars and birthmarks. Some of these physical scars were self-inflicted and representative of another time in a person's life. Some of them are the result of surgery or accidents. No matter how the scar got there or how people feel about their birthmarks, it is very empowering to see people take control of the way they feel about their bodies and celebrate themselves in visual form. It really is truly inspiring!
