when i was younger, i was depressed, and as a coping mechanism, i turned to self-mutilation.
now, years later, i'm pretty much covered in scars. i want to get tattooed over several of them, on my arm,
but i was wondering if this would work well?
has anyone else here ever gotten tattooed over scars? do they make the ink fade? or distort the image?
my scars are very visible and raised, they're all bumpy. i want to get a tree, that i drew, on my forearm to cover some of them, but i've never been tattooed before and im clueless.. also, i'm extremely picky with art, i don't want the tattoo to be messy.
the upper part of my arm has very, very thick scars, and the lower part of my arm, my forarm, has smaller, les bumpy, tinyer scars. i figured that i should stick to only getting tattooed on the lower part of my arm since the scars are much less visible, i figure it would interfere less with the tattoo and still draw attention away from the nastier, bigger scars above it. i don't know. i'm not sure yet.
anybody have any info on tattoing over scars? i want to be sure of this before i get it done, and know everything i possibly can about the procedure for this..
i quickly drew out on my arm what i sort of would want the tattoo to look like, here:
sorry if the pic's big..
also, thisis me :
i figured the tattoo would go well..
