Every scar has a story to tell. They can be either a source of strength or an appalling reminder of a past incident. Sometimes, we look at a scar and think about how we survived something. How brave we were and have become with every passing day. We feel pride in having that scar and feel the need to wear it as a reward. Those are the scars we have embraced and feel no need to hide them. On the other hand, we have gone through a bad experience and survived an adverse situation that resulted in a scar. Every time we look at it, we feel disgusted. It reminds us of an experience we would rather forget. That memory haunts us, consumes our mind and traumatizes us. Those scars are worth getting rid of.
Some scars don’t have much of a memory associated with them. They just happen to exist. They have been on us since forever. These scars are birthmarks. Sometimes, these scars are just hideous. They can scare people away, especially children. But, people are very creative. They have found clever ways to cover them up. Here are 25 photos that show innovative ways people have concealed their scars and birthmarks. Scroll down and check it out.

A beautiful flower garden
Flowers symbolize happiness and hospitality. They are also taken as a symbol of prosperity and wealth. People who are obsessed with flowers are known as anthophiles. It’s funny how we have a term for this. Flowers are beautiful and help uplift your mood instantly. Just being around flowers have such a great impact on us. They relieve tension, reduce stress and anxiety. Having them as a tattoo can reveal a lot about your personality. It depends on the type of flower and it’s color.
