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

Grace Yuan, 34, mother of a 3-year-old daughter, poses with her new tattoo, which covers her Caesarean delivery (C-section) scar, at Samurai Tattoo in Shanghai, China, April 26, 2017. Yuan's daughter thinks the scar is ugly, so Yuan wants to cover it up. A dance teacher, she feels awkward when the scar is exposed when she wears costumes. "Now I feel more confident after getting this tattoo. I can dance freely on the stage without worries or awkwardness," said Yuan. ALY SONG/REUTERS
