Agree Carla.

It's awesome, what a difference a little ink and a good design can make.

My oldest daughter got one to cover up scars that created while going through a very emotional period. She used to cut herself and had scars all over her wrist. She now has a tattoo that says "Hope". She said she did it to serve as a reminder that if she ever felt the need to cut again that there was always hope and she didn't need to do it.

That's a great inspiring story, and be able to overcome, adding a tattoo she can relate to for life.

Well that is good. How well will the ink cover a deep scar? I have several from all my medical treatments over the years. Mostly they don't show but it is fun to paste on a temp tattoo sometimes.

Serenity. I really don't like seeing people all inked up. But I had open heart surgery way back and the scar is wide and white. It is fun to slap i on a fake, but a real one I would think of if I wanted to wear lots of low cut shirts - now I usually wear turtlenecks or something that stays just above. I have a small scar on my wrist from some IV and always anew Dr asks what is that like I might of cut myself or something. So a little pretty thing over that would be a good place to practice. (ill)

Oh wow my Nan had open heart surgery and Bless her She looks like a Rag doll that had to be restuffed.
I think because of her age at the time they didn't think Vanity was an issue and I suppose they were right.

DS thanks for the suggestion. I have tried all kinds of scar treatments, it has to be done when fresh and healing to make any difference. not awful really I am rather a modest person so keeping covered isn't a hardship. People I know well like a BF don't really notice after they get used to it.

I don't have any scars I wish to cover, but I'm thinking about getting a tat of a hairline.

I once was thinking of getting my girlfriend's name and I love you tattooed on my pecker.
She said: "then you'll just be putting words in my mouth"

In response to “Not completely, right?

I have used it a lot and the scars disappear completely. You can get a bottle of "Pure Vitamin E Skin Beauty Oil" at the cosmetics counter, or poke a hole in a capsule and squeeze the oil out. It has to soak in, so put it on when you can leave the skin bare for a while.
