Choose a tattoo that symbolizes strength and beauty or cover the scar with a motivational phrase when covering a scar. A phoenix is a popular tattoo subject when covering scars to symbolize overcoming hardships. A motivational phrase tattoo reminds the subject of their strength.
Remember that every scar is different and it is important to consult a tattoo artist before tattooing over a scar. Do not place a tattoo over a scar that is red or infected. Scars may cause nerve damage or hypersensitivity, making a tattoo more painful on that area. Be sure the scar is completely healed before receiving the tattoo.
