Everybody is unique and every body is unique too. We all have our marks and scars. We’re born with some of them, and others are picked up over time. They help to define us and tell the stories of our lives. Scars can remind us of difficult times we endured, for example, while birthmarks separate us from everyone else.
Sometimes, however, people like to get tattoos to cover up or even change the way we look at their scars and marks. Through the amazing skills of talented tattoo artists, pregnancy stretch marks can turn into colorful rainbows, self-harm scars become poignant messages, and surgery scars can transform into works of art. Here are 75 stunning examples to inspire and amaze you.
1) Zip It Up
Have you ever noticed how much certain scars look just like zippers, especially when stitches are involved? This person did, so they decided to take the concept one step further with a zipper-style tattoo on the back of their head.
2) Angel Of Mercy
The individual in this photo had some large scars that might have seemed impossible to cover up at first glance. But a talented tattoo artist got to work and transformed those marks into a beautiful winged angel, guarding over this person forever more.
3) A Flawless Floral Pattern
A lot of women can find it hard to cope with mastectomy scars, but as this image shows, there are a lot of amazing ways you can cover them up and look simply stunning afterwards. Now, instead of seeing scars when she looks at her body, this lady sees nothing but beautiful flowers, flawlessly crafted on her own skin.
4) A Spiky Surprise
Those scars were caused by self-harm. When the person started to feel better about themselves and their life, they didn’t want to see those painful memories on their leg. They covered up the scars with a super cute hedgehog. Now that’s creative!
5) Spot The Scar
Can you even spot the scars in this one? This tattoo was added to cover up some stretch marks, but it’s so brilliantly done, you’d never know that there were any marks underneath. The design is beautiful, featuring a lotus-style shape that flows neatly across the skin.
6) A Natural Flower
This one is really special and shows how tattoo artists can work with existing scars and marks to enhance their designs. This lady had a mark that looked just like a flower, so the artist tattooed over part of it and left some of the natural marking to balance out this beautiful design.
There’s the right way of doing things, and then there’s the wrong way of doing things. But how can a solution be wrong when it’s faster? This is how.
Every day, we go through small internal battles. We argue with ourselves over doing things right or doing things fast. The 40 people ahead all opted to do things fast. And the consequences came even faster as a result!
It’s as good as new.
If you look closely, you’ll be able to see that some of the column uses new wood. Thanks to this restoration, the roof that the column’s holding up should stay in place for weeks. Warning: Do not play Jenga with this!
For once, the sockets are making the right expression
Drilling metal screws into the plugs? What could possibly go wrong? The weird thing about this one is that it actually took some effort to do something so stupid.
Calm down, there’s some plastic tape. No one could possibly walk over the gap with that tape in place. Right?
Sometimes when your health is out of balance you can’t see yourself clearly. When people struggle with something physical, like weight, they can’t always see how beautiful they really are. These people didn’t even realize how attractive they were until they worked on themselves, but now they can celebrate their appearances every day.
These 30 people have powerful stories, and their transformations are absolutely amazing. Their messages are so inspiring.
“I lost 100 lbs, and I feel great.”
“It took me 2 years and 3 months to get in shape. It sounds like a lot of time, but it was well worth it.”
“I made true friends, and they helped me to have a more active lifestyle. That’s how I managed to lose weight. Now I can communicate with any person.”
“The difference between these 2 photos is 4 years. And I was even used to not enjoying what I looked like.”
“Me when I was 19 and 21.”
“I was depressed because of the way I looked. I didn’t even want to live. But I decided that I was able to change everything, so I started losing weight… I feel great, and I’m enjoying my life!”
“I didn’t use to be really fat. I had a hard time choosing the right hairstyle.”
“I used to weigh 60 lb, now I weigh 90, and I keep working on my body.”
“3 years between these photos. Some people don’t believe that it’s me.”
“So much has changed in 3 years! Before, I didn’t get out much. I was very shy. Now we live in a time when changing your appearance is very easy.”
“Just 4 years, and this is what I’ve become (I’m on the right).”
“I started reading all the time. I read a lot. This is how I started changing psychologically and emotionally… This is how I found the answer for me.”
“I felt overwhelmed, but I decided to take one day at a time. I didn’t know if I would live or die. I just knew that I had to focus on the day I was living. I had a ‘lose weight or die trying’ mentality.”
“I knew I owed it to my son to try to break the family tree of obesity. There are so many compromises to being an obese parent: I was simply forfeiting the ability to participate in so many wonderful moments.”
Not all of us are fashion experts. This is why we try to experiment and mix and match clothes to see if we can look more stylish. Unfortunately, the more we try to look more fashionable, the more we end up failing. The risky fashion choice we make often leaves us looking ridiculous and weird in other people’s eyes.
Fortunately, fashion disasters aren’t always bad. In fact, they can be transformed into little entertainment and also a warning for others to never try to copy them.
Here are the most cringe-worthy fashion fails you need to see this year:
1. Brown logo on white shoes
In theory, putting a brown logo on a white background will make a product look classy. In reality, a brown logo on white shoes just looks like bird poo from afar.
2. A not-so-comfortable evening dress
This is probably one of the most uncomfortable dresses you’ll see. I don’t think you’ll have a great time wearing this to a party or anywhere.
3. When you accidentally stepped on something
This is actually a good pair of shoes if you always walk on mud or dirt. You won’t have to worry about cleaning your shoes. Plus, its design can work as camouflage for when you accidentally stepped on your dog’s poo.
Will you give up or will you never give up? Well, it’s a good shirt to wear if you still can’t decide. At least, you’re letting other people know where you stand.
