Scar on my left deltoid, what tattoo?

Recommended Posts

I had surgery more than one year ago on my shoulder, the surgeon removed a bone spur and I'm looking for a suggestion as to what tattoo should I get to cover the nasty scar that now i have. Thank you for your help!

I only have one tattoo on my back. In the pictures you can see the back tattoo and the scar on the top of my shoulder.

I wish i could do a full sleeve but that would create a potential problem with my accounting job. So maybe something just big enough to be covered by a short sleeve shirt?

Thank you for your help!

Shouldn't you decide what tattoo you want ?

i had shoulder and bicep surgery and got my sleeve to cover it, basically the only decision I made was swapping which arm the tattoo I really wanted was going to go on*


My artist had tattooed over a number of scars so during the design consultation appointment we or more to the point he just altered the design to cover the scars. I had two minor scars on my shoulder and one thin long scar on my bicep.


so I would decide what you really want and talk it over with your artist 




this had worse scars and he pulled it off 


* I had a Japanese full sleeve tattoo done one of the scars was covered with shading , and the others were covered by black and grey water design

A friend of mine that was in my platoon was in a bad car wreck and received a pretty gnarly scar due to it.

He got a tattoo of a knife cutting his skin on the scar. It was pretty neat. Wish I had a picture of it.

    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
