Scars augmenting tattoos

I’ve featured tattoos that augment scarification projects, and I’ve featured scars that destroy pigment, done over top of tattoos, but this is one of the first cases where I’ve seen a scar done on a tattoo after the fact where the keloids were intended to augment the tattoo! Thanks to Joshlobes for sending this, both fresh and well into its healing.

  1. I am realy growing quite fond of tattoos with scarification added to the design and vice versa, it makes for an amazing design.

  2. Wow! I just love how the scars add texture to it, it almost looks like a halograph card…I really want to feel that tattoo for some reason..

  3. This is a really well done integration of tattoos and scarification. The scars really highlight the outlines well.

  4. Love how that’s done. Have been trying to figure out a design that would look good with something similar to that done.

  5. even though it’s a skull and supposed to be scary and whatnot, I still think it looks cute. scars+tattoos done well look really good togther.

  6. I have seen this in person. Its the piece that made me decide to get cut by that “artiste”.
