On 31 dec 2009 i punched a glass door and my right hand got hurt....i had some fight with my parents. I think my right thumb tendon got cut and it bleeded a lot. After that I am not do a thums up properly with my right thumb....and it has left a c shape scar , which looks extremley ugly whenever I meet someone and shake hands with them. I think covering it up with some decent tattoo is a good way.... please advise appropriately. Thanks in advance

Tattoo or permanent makeup is one of a number of options, including laser, to improve the scars that occur on the skin. For dark scars, I advise patients to begin Melarase creams.  Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles
