Like any major surgery, a cesarean delivery, or C-section, can leave a scar. As a result, thousands of women are deciding to get a tattoo to cover their scar. Here at Healthline, we’re obsessed with the whole idea. Whether to cover, celebrate, or emphasize their scars, these tattoos are a powerful and creative way for women to retell the history of their bodies.
