Scar cover up tattoos
This tattoo done in Japanese style and shows a pair of koi fishes and cherry blossoms (sakura). As I was saying many times Japanese Tattoo Style is the best for covering up old tattoos… or scars.
Scar cover up tattoos in general are a great option, whether you’re looking for simple, for example a tummy tuck scar covering or something a little bolder to cover up a lingering reminder of something…
This tattoo is covering scars located all over the arm. I think this sleeve symbolizes, at some point, a new stage of life. It covers the scars perfectly. And from the point of view of symbology it works great. The meaning of Koi and Sakura in Japanese Art is pretty strong.
Koi In tattoo imagery, especially in combination with flowing water, symbolizes courage, control, and the ability to achieve goals with an understanding of life’s trials. Together with Sakura the sleeve looks complete by all means. The fragility of the cherry blossom is the fragility of human existence, its brief period of life.
Please be aware that tattooing over scar tissue can be very difficult. The ink can blur quite easily, tattooing over scar tissue is not the same as tattooing normal skin tissue. Thats why you should trust your artist when it comes to the right design idea to cover up your scars with a tattoo.
Every tattoo sleeve design is made by custom according to a customer’s arm unique proportions and any special requests. That’s why consultation in person is highly recommended, before starting to work on that kind of tattoo! Please, set up your consultation here.
