    Hi everyone, I needed people who would understand me. So for the past few months I have been planning on getting a tattoo over my scars. It would help me stop and look at the "bigger" picture. But NOOOO! The tattoo artists told me there is no way to tattoo over my scars because there are too many! What a waste of freakin time and effort. Why not start cutting again? I can't hide the scars. I'm at a dead end, and I need help.

    Have you tried scar reduction? There is a sticky at the top of this forum filled with great ideas.

    I didn't know that scars were trouble to tattoo over... (insert google search here)

    The issue seems split. I'd go to another tattoo parlour, and ask for a second opinion, as it seems some people will do it, and some won't.

    Definately don't start cutting again. Everywhere I looked it was said that as long as the scars are over a year old you have a really good chance of getting the 'too'd over. So adding new ones will just make the wait longer.

    I'm by no means an expert, I'm just trying to help.

    Good luck.
