Modern technologies today allow permanent tattooing on scars to be applied not only for decorative purposes but also to correct cosmetic defects that do not require surgical intervention, in order to solve aesthetic problems. Alternatively, eliminate post-surgical consequences like scarring, unnatural pigmentation, or skin color violations.

What is a tattoo on scars or burns?

Injuries to the skin, such as burns, or surgical (after abdominal operations and allowing you to conceal the scar from appendicitis) can be hidden by tattooing scars or other damaged skin. Scars formed naturally after intervention or due to suppuration can also be smoothed by tattooing.

Techniques used in scars camouflage

Skin defects can be removed or hidden using two techniques:

  • Stimulation of collagen.
  • Scar camouflage.


These are two almost the same techniques, each of which has a different goal, yet they are both effective.

Collagen stimulation

The collagen stimulation technique is sometimes referred to as “dry tattooing.” It is a method for permanently erasing scars, blemishes, birthmarks, and wrinkles. A needle without pigment is inserted through the problem areas of the skin. In this way, collagen is naturally produced, which is completely safe, and natural, and does no damage to the skin.

Over time, collagen production slows down, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. Collagen is a protein that is present in cartilage, bones, tendons, and skin.

A collagen injection with the thinnest needle stimulates the production of collagen and makes the skin “lift up”. The procedure is undeniably more effective than laser resurfacing or chemical peeling. After the treatment, you can return to your normal lifestyle and do not worry about avoiding the sun, peeling, and polishing.

Is scar camouflage effective?

Sometimes, closing a scar with a tattoo is the only choice if it cannot be removed naturally. Sometimes the camouflage procedure is combined with collagen stimulation. As such, the rough skin is removed as much as possible, and paint is applied using pigments that match the skin color, making the scar or burn almost invisible.

Does this procedure suitable for everyone?

  • Those who have undergone surgery and suffering from psychological distress of scars and skin imperfections.
  • When burns occur on the face, body, or limbs, tattooing can be used to correct them.

Also, tattooing will hide tummy tuck scars, skin stretchmarks, and caesarean section scars, etc. Those are the most common reasons for getting scar camouflage.
