China has one of the highest C-section rates in the world and some women are getting tattoos to cover over the scars.

Chinese mothers tattoo over C-section scars

Li Ling, 34, mother of a 6-year-old boy, kisses a dog at Samurai Tattoo in Shanghai, China, March 25, 2017. Ling's tattoo, which covers her caesarean delivery (C-section) scar, is of a forest under a night sky showing the the Capricornus Constellation. Capricorn is her zodiac sign. "I constantly felt hungry during my last month of pregnancy and I couldn't stop eating. As a result my son grew too big for a natural birth. He weighed 4.18 kilograms when he was born."
