    Sorry if this is in the wrong place.

    I have a scar just under a centimetre in thickness on my side, a few centimetres in length. It's about 2 years old.

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience in getting tattooed over one - do artists advise against it? Is it more / less painful? Does it look crap once it's healed?

    I've not had one but have had a look into it before. Results seem (to me) to be a bit hit and miss and I think it mainly depends on depth/rise of the scarring.

    Just under a centimetre sounds quite thick to me though...you'd have to goto a tattooist. Might be an idea to checkout the BME website aswell, they'll have a better idea.

    It can be done, should be fine with a small scar but depends like how deep it is ect. I know it makes it alot harder for the tattooist to do a good job but if you find a decent one it should look just as good as a tattoo on normal skin.

    You'll have to ask the tattooist, as there can be problems with the ink spreading or just not taking properly.
