Tattoo Artist Helps People Regain Confidence By Covering Scars With Beautiful Tattoos

Meet  Ngoc Like Tattoo, a Vietnamese tattoo artist that conceals unwanted marks or scars in the body with detailed and intricate artworks. She inks colorful floral designs and large animal-inspired motifs over scars caused by cesarean sections, wounds, or operations. The cool thing about her body art is that they are well-designed to hide the scars underneath

Ngoc’s work is particularly noteworthy since tattoos have long been frowned upon in Vietnam. “It is my hope that our stories can give people a new perspective about the art of tattooing, about it's not only superficial but also spiritual healing power,” Ngoc writes on Facebook. “I am extremely delighted that I am able to help reduce the stigma of tattooing in Vietnam as well as inspiring so many people struggling with their scars to step up, take charge, close their wounds with a meaningful piece of art and live the happy and fulfilling life that we all deserve to have.”

It must be super annoying for doctors and nurses when someone needs precise surgery or stitching or some type of evaluation - and you can't see properly cuz the area is covered in tattoo.
