People get tattoos for different reasons. Some get inked as a vehicle of self-expression while others go for it to pay tribute to a loved one or maybe something they are passionate about – such as sports, music, movies, or even video games.
Regardless of your motives, you want your tattoos done right. They’re going to stay with you for the rest of your days so you might as well get it perfectly. You gotta make sure that your tattoo artist is good and that he or she can spell correctly. You definitely wouldn’t want the burden of having embarrassing, cringe-worthy mistakes on your skin.

Compiled by BoredPanda, these wonderful tattoos show us how some people used ink to cover up their scars, big and small. We love how most of these tattoos were conceptualized and executed.

“What inspired me to get tattoos to cover my scars was so whenever I was down or having a bad day, I could look down at my newly painted arm and remember that overcoming something can lead to beautiful things. My next step is to cover the scars of my other arm and my leg. It’s never easy, but by getting them covered up, it’s a little bit like closure.” — Lauren S.
