Tran Thi Bich Ngoc is a tattoo artist in Hanoi who specializes in tattooing designs over scars. Her clients come from all over, with scars from injuries, surgery, burns, chemical exposure, stretch marks, mastectomies, cesarian sections, birthmarks, and an occasional bad tattoo. With so much judgement directed at their appearance, women in particular are psychologically affected by scars and skin blemishes that can’t be fixed. But they can be minimized and rendered beautiful with delicate flowers and birds inked on top.
