But we have massive respect for the tattoo artist because he turned it into a work of comic book art.

It seems like the tattoo artist is a big fan of the cinematic classic, Forrest Gump, a 1994 movie in which Forrest (played by Tom Hanks) runs for days after Jenny tells him, “Run Forrest, run.”

It is such an impressive work that it takes time to realize what the artist did. We are happy for this guy as he no longer has to deal with annoying questions about what happened to his fingers.

This tattoo shows that we need to accept our bodies regardless of scars, and even if it is ugly to you now, you may one day end up being very grateful for your scars.

This man knew how to increase the intensity of his chest scar an,d as if using a chainsaw wasn’t enough, he even tattooed the year when he got the scar.

We have huge respect for the tattoo artist for using an existing pigmentation difference to create something super cool.

Taking care of the cut requires sewing it up, so maybe this person is trying to indicate that there is still some work to be done. Maybe the physical scar healed, but the emotional scar needs time.

If you also have a birthmark like this one, this is how you can have fun with it. You can thank us (or this person) later.

We don’t know the story behind these tattoos, but it seems like this person lost a beloved pet and decided to wear their love for their furbaby on their sleeve.

We really love how this person decided to incorporate the scar instead of covering it. Of course, anyone has every right to cover his or her scar, but this tattoo looks so delightful.
