People always say “scars are your best tattoos”.
My tattoos were my choice and were my way of having a say about a change on my body for the first time in my life. Having a scar means you have to adjust to a change that has been made for you, one that aesthetically, you had no control over.
Comparing the two always seemed contradictory to me and belittles the emotional journey of having to cope with a scar.
Tattoos are the scars you choose! Both tattoos were a fundamental part of my self love journey and have got me through so many trials in my life.
