Can I tattoo over my scars? (Photo)

I have self harm scars from when I am younger. In a year I would like to get a tattoo to cover this arm but I want to know that my scars are able to be covered.

Fractional lasers for cutting scars

Tattoos don't work well on these scars. I would suggest fractional laser + Plato's Scar Serum for an incremental improvement.
