Tattoos are as polarizing as politics while being as personal as an individual’s life story. Some ink is pure art while other tats carry significant meaning. Perhaps most meaningful of all, are tattoos meant to cover and carry on from traumatic scars and events. These tattoos and the accompanying stories may cause you to rethink judging someone for the art on their body.
After scoliosis spinal reconstruction surgery left her with this scar, she decided not to cover, but to use it to tell a story and inspire instead. The “S” in the tattoo traces out of where her spine actually was before the surgery. Tattoo or not, no one will ever doubt her strength.
