Tattoos have taken a new direction in the form of cover-ups instead of color-ups. Tattoo artists are now able to tackle stretch marks with tattoo ink that matches the recipient's skin tone. The result is a seamlessly blended canvas where tiger-striped stretch marks used to reside. Take a look!
Stretch Marks. Essentially, stretch marks are scars. They are places on our skin where the elastin has broken down and torn essentially, leaving behind a small crease where once smooth skin resided. How to actually fix this has baffled skin care professionals for years.
Common. Stretch marks are also called tiger stripes in slang and are quite common. They happen after weight gain and/or loss, childbirth, puberty, and a slew of other reasons.
The Treatments. There are a slew of treatments and creams available to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks, but no cure for them.
