I was so excited to be chosen to tattoo over these top surgery scars. It’s such an honour to be included in the process of this kind of work. This is what tattooing is all about for me. Powerful symbols creating new lines for us to see, fundamentally altering the way we see ourselves, and the ways the world see us.Using the existing lines and shapes of our bodies (or our scars) to build a design is such a beautiful way to change how we feel about ourselves. Plus, just how fucking cool do these laurels look!!! ️
Just in case y’all forgot – I’m having a great time covering up your old, unwanted tattoos.I’ve always done coverups. I’ve always loved doing them. But it’s not until these last couple of years that I’ve fully grasped what it means to reclaim a part of your body that didn’t feel right.So I’ve switched from loving coverups to being IN LOVE with covering up. Is it hard? Yes. Is it worth it? 1000X yes.
