Tattooing scars. Is it possible?

In general, the process depends on the scar itself. Self-damaging scars are relatively easy to cover up compared to mastectomy, caesarean section, keloid, or other scars of great depth and texture. "Is it elevated? How deep does the tissue damage go? Has keloid formed? Is there hardened scar tissue? All these questions and more need to be taken into account."

Since all scars are different and all artists have a unique style, it is important to find a tattoo artist who will both suit your aesthetic and have a fair amount of experience tattooing over scars. Since these tattoos require more effort, time and precision, going with an experienced artist means that your tattoo will look good during both the tattooing and the healing process. Ask for a consultation and be honest with your artist, but also make sure the artist is realistic with you. Discuss your expectations. many people hope that the scar will disappear completely, but sometimes it just isn't possible. Due to the different skin texture in scars, there is a much higher chance of eruptions, fading and healing of blemishes. No one's body is flawless, but your new tattoo can help you regain your confidence. With the right preparation and a skilled artist, you can turn your scar into a piece of ink that you are proud of.
