  • Scar Camouflage can be done on many types of scars. The key thing to remember is you can only add color, you cannot lighten. This is due to how the tattoo will sit in your skin and age. TRUST ME on this one! If the skin is light in color or white you are a good match for this service. We then color the scar to match the skin, aka camouflaging it. You would not be a good candidate if the scar in the skin is dark in color. Tattooing light over dark DOES NOT WORK.
