What's New in tattoos


How does hEDS affect tattoos? I have super stretchy skin and slow healing because of hEDS.
Other family members have milder symptoms and their tattoos are fine, but l'm wondering if anyone with a case more similar to mine has tattoos. I'm most concerned about the image warping and the area having weird scar tissue.
Any advice is much appreciated! #EDS #Hypermobility #Tattoos #EhlersDanlosSyndrome

A rest day ...... #MentalHealth #CheckInWithMe #Anxiety #Depression #Selfcare

Well got up had a shower ,fresh jammies on and made it from bed to the couch today .Having a little rest day cuddled up on sofa with my little Coco,kids are away for the day & enjoying the nice weather so I'm taking the opportunity to follow my advice and have a rest day (meant to be on bed rest long term justnow) but after being a bit more busy past two weeks with kids off school I am taking full advantage of being able to rest ♥️😊🙏

Hope everyone has a lovely day & weekend 😊

To anyone needing this ..... #MentalHealth #CheckInWithMe #Insomnia #SkinCancer #Anxiety #Depression #Selfcare #MotivationalTattoos

So lately I have been struggling and to learning to live and find my ways of coping and living with all these new health changes/issues.
I really thought WOW even just the past 6 months alone it's been a lot .It no wonder rim overwhelmed & struggling.Id been thinking I was crazy ,my moods right now are so unpredictable & my best friend told me tonight Emma look what you've been through and how strong you really are you just don't believe it at times.
It really is OK to not feel OK, it's ok to take a min to realise I am strong ,I have been through he'll and back yet I'm still here. It's ok to think I can't take anymore but it's not ok to think your alone or you have to give up !
Were in it together ❤️

A little positivity tonight..... #MentalHealth #CheckInWithMe #Insomnia #SkinCancer #Cancer #Anxiety #Depression #Selfcare

For a little positivity quote tonight since I've been so down lately....
Just a few of my little tattoos I have that are things I love and that remind me to be strong and positive ♥️🎗🙏
Each one either is something that has meant something to me at that time and I try remind myself of them when struggling ♥️

Be you 💛
Faith (in spanish)
This too shall pass ;
A dying rose with Beautiful under it 🥀
Melanoma sign but made in to a heart to add a little touch in between families birth month flowers.🎗🌼🌸
See the good 🙏

Not been in the best head space past few days especially so just trying to think positive & realise everything I've went through when I thought I couldn't take anymore at those times so just have to keep trying (always easier said than done )
But I'll try 🤞👌

I’m getting tired of fighting against people’s prejudice

I’m non binary and the way I dress, plus the piercings and tattoos I choose to wear, the ones that help me express who I am, cause me a constant negative judgment from people.
I’m a teacher and the places where I work won’t allow me any opportunities because of this, regardless of the positive feedback I’ve received for the last four years
At the beginning I stood up and spoke about it to my boss, but now I feel like I’m doomed to deal with it and just accept that, as long as I look like this, I’ll have to accept that treatment.

A cover up tattoo that has been funded by our amazing supporters!

Part of the wonderful work SCUFF does is helping those who have recovered from #Selfharming to fund a tattoo to cover up their scars. A tattoo which they may not otherwise have been able to get.

A wonderful way to celebrate their achievements!

Here is a cover up tattoo that has been funded by our amazing supporters! This tattoo was done by Eloise at Gilded Dagger Tattoo / @gildeddaggertattoo . Here's what our applicant had to say about the experience:

"Getting this scar cover up has given me so much more confidence with wearing short sleeves in public, I used to hide away in jumpers and jackets even when it was boiling hot which isn't nice. SCUFF have given me freedom and courage and I will forever be grateful. When I first looked at my tattoo I got quite emotional because it felt like all the years of hiding away and being ashamed of my scars had gone and I could try and put the past behind me, not to mention how beautiful the tattoo is - the tattooist is so talented! Thank you so much SCUFF for this funding, you really do make a change in people's lives."

Do you have mental health tattoos? (Or any tattoos)

I have others, along with non-mental health tattoos, but I like this picture a lot. I got this when I first started having paranoid delusions while I was really depressed. But when people ask about it, I just tell them it's a brainstorm haha

The same day, I got the four elements from Avatar the Last Airbender. Relating different parts of myself to each element was a big part of my therapy at the time. It's simple and hundreds of people have the same one, but I don't mind at all!

My first tattoo was a human heart on my ribs with "vivo, vinco" (they have the lines too, but I can't type them) which is Latin for "I live, I conquer."

I want another one from a poem that says 웃음은 슬플 때를 위해 있는 것이다, which means "smiling is for when you are sad" (I live in Korea)

Tattoos are my favorite thing ever and I would love to hear about your tattoos whether they're about mental health or not~
