You will never believe what these moms did with their C-section scars

No matter how you got that baby out of you, giving birth is cause for celebration. These moms took it one step further by turning their C-section scars into works of art.

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.

1. Baby feet

Everything about this tattoo is perfect. The fact that it sits over a C-section scar makes it even more meaningful.

2. Butterfly

Is this butterfly belly tattoo as a C-section scar cover-up dope or nope? I also vote dope. The artwork is amazing.

3. Cherry blossom

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!"

4. Death Star

This lady deserves all the points for being the cool mom — she flawlessly covered her C-section scar with some epic Star Wars ink.

5. Dragon

Reminiscent of a Phoenix rising from the ashes, this tattoo can be symbolic of a C-section scar bringing forth new life.

6. Flower power

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!"

7. Guns

In a word: badass. You can still see the C-section scar, but it only makes the blazing guns tattoo even more impressive.

8. Roses

Every rose has its thorn, and every beautiful mom has tiger stripes from giving birth.

9. Safety pin

A clever and oh-so-perfect way to celebrate the scar without covering it up.

10. Spider

Any mom with an edge would be proud to rock this realistic spider tattoo cover-up at the beach.

11. Tropical blooms

A beautiful, delicate and creative cover-up for a vertical C-section scar that can be difficult to conceal.

12. Zipper

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.
