Wang Jing, 46, who is being tattooed, is reflected on an image depicting China's late Chairman Mao Zedong at Samurai Tattoo in Shanghai, China, March 1, 2017. Wang, who has a 20-year-old daughter, has spent thousands of dollars over the years on treatments to remove her caesarean delivery (C-section) scar. She decided to cover up the scar with a tattoo of "Little Pepper", one of her three pet cats. "I want to be more confident when wearing low-rise pants," she said. ALY SONG/REUTERS
