Some Folks Try To Hide Their Scars, But These 9 People Are Turning Them Into Works Of Art

Scar tattoos are our new favorite things.

Some people see scars as unwanted things that show a body's imperfection. But, for some, they've been an inspiration for and canvas on which unique works of art have been created.

In what may be our new favorite act of self-love, there are some hashtags floating around social media such as #scartattoo, #scarcovertattoo, and #scarcoveruptattoo that feature people showing how they've camouflaged their unwanted blemishes and embraced their skin's flaws.

Whether they're covering it up completely where you can hardly find it again or if they're using it as part of the art itself, this new trend is more than just a fashion statement to these people. This body art likely has meaning and oftentimes the scar itself carries some meaning, too.

Scar tattoos show that you can find beauty in everything — even the things we've long considered to be unattractive.

Check out some of our favorite scar tattoos from social media. Some of them are the finished product while others are before-and-after snapshots. And, because scars can pop up anywhere on the body, be warned that some of these could be a bit NSFW.
