Getting Tattooed Over Your Scars

posted by Karianne - 

If you've never gotten a tattoo, they all hurt, but ones over scars hurt extra bad. I had a breast reduction when I was 18, and the scars on the sides of my breasts are very red and will never fade. So I decided to get those tattooed over. When I was 19 I got my very first tattoo on my right rib cage. I didn't know what to expect so it went by quick and I was able to handle. I got this work done from Tyler at Grizzly Tattoo (one of my favorite shops in Portland)! This is actually one of my smaller tattoos.

Loving this baby more and more everyday. @_diamond_back did an amazing job. 😍 #tattoo #inked #ribtattoo #floraltattoo #portlandtattoos #portland #pdx #Oregon #pnw

Then LAST WEEK, I got the mother of all tattoos. My biggest and most painful piece to date. I cried. I literally clenched the table during the last 20 minutes with one hand while I covered my face with the other and cried. I went to Diego at Daredevil Tattoo in New York City. He was awesome! If you're ever in the city, check him out! He was awesome while I cried too. This one goes from the middle of my rib cage on the left side up into my armpit. 

Got a little mermaid swimming around my ribcage on Friday at @daredeviltattoo from @diegovmannino! 🙌 Hurt like a fkn bitch but it's well more than worth it! 💫

So, if you wanna get a tattoo to cover a scar, it rocks... but you're gonna be in pain.
