12 Creative Tattoos People Used To Cover Up Their Birthmarks

Considering tattoos are pretty permanent, most people, when they get a tattoo they choose to get something with a personal meaning, whether it’s a tribute to a loved one, matching tattoos with someone special, or just something that reminds them of a particular period in their lives.

But some may get them because they appreciate art, and that’s technically what tattoos are – small pieces of art you can wear with you always, while others might just like the way they look. Really, the reasons are endless and personal for everyone.

However, lately, we’ve also seen people getting tattoos to either cover up or add to an already existing scar or birthmark and in most cases, the results are truly stunning.

Having a birthmark myself, I am a firm believer you should wear them with pride and never try to cover them up – except with SPF, of course. They make you a little different and unique. But of course, people are all different and some may feel insecure about them, or maybe they just want to make their birthmark even more one-of-a-kind, in which case, these tattoos are perfect.

So, scroll down to see a list of people who found a stunning way to transform their birthmarks:
