I have 2 tattoos that cover scars, I have no regrets about either. They came out beautifully and rendered my scars nearly invisible – that is to say, no one but me really notices them. The best thing is to honestly go to a reputable artist in your area and have a consultation with them. Show them your scars, tell them some design ideas that you have, and see what they say. Keep in mind that you will have to be a bit flexible with size/design to camoflauge your scar effectively. Both of my tattoo artists who did these for me put the focal point of the tattoo a bit above the actual scars, to draw the eye away from them.

My brother’s gf has one on her chest to hide a chemo port scar and her tattoo is beautiful, I didn’t realize it was hiding a scar until I asked her about the general meaning of the tattoo. Like pp said, pick a reputable artist and get a consultation, but it really is amazing what can be done.
