12 Genius Tattoo Ideas That Turn Birthmarks Into Something Awesome

The creative work of body art has been in fashion for centuries now. Earlier, only a few bold people got tattoos because they were attached with a fair share of stigmas. These days, three out of ten people have tattoos on their bodies. A few of these people love getting tattoos that mean a lot to them and the rest just go with meaningless designs they like. Tattoo is a medium people use to express themselves. Recently, modification and transformation tattoos are trending where either a permanent scar is modified into an integrated part of the chosen tattoo or a bad previous tattoo disaster is transformed into a brand new one. People have taken their art one step ahead and here is a list of cool cover tattoos.
