Whether you gave birth vaginally or via C-section, your body may never be the same again. But it is possible to turn often embarrassing physical changes, like stretch marks and C-section scars, into something you can be proud of.
Instead of hiding your post-baby body, embrace the change — like these 12 moms did.
Everything about this tattoo is perfect. The fact that it sits over a C-section scar makes it even more meaningful.

Is this butterfly belly tattoo as a C-section scar cover-up dope or nope? I also vote dope. The artwork is amazing.
As Amy posted to Pinterest, "I'm not a tattoo person but hey..at least, it wouldn't hurt over my csection scar since the area is completely numb!"
This lady deserves all the points for being the cool mom — she flawlessly covered her C-section scar with some epic Star Wars ink.
Reminiscent of a Phoenix rising from the ashes, this tattoo can be symbolic of a C-section scar bringing forth new life.
One mom proudly posted about her C-section scar cover-up: "I am so happy with how this turned out. It's a tad different than the drawing I gave him, but you can't see my scar anymore!"
In a word: badass. You can still see the C-section scar, but it only makes the blazing guns tattoo even more impressive.
Every rose has its thorn, and every beautiful mom has tiger stripes from giving birth.
A clever and oh-so-perfect way to celebrate the scar without covering it up.
Any mom with an edge would be proud to rock this realistic spider tattoo cover-up at the beach.
A beautiful, delicate and creative cover-up for a vertical C-section scar that can be difficult to conceal.
There is so much right about this cover-up tattoo that it can't be wrong. Impeccable artwork like this doesn't come cheap, but turning visible scar tissue into 3-D ink is priceless.
