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

Wang Ruoyu, 37, a mother of a 16-year-old son and a yoga coach, poses with her new tattoo at Samurai Tattoo in Shanghai, China, April 12, 2017. Ruoyu had a caesarean delivery (C-section) because her baby weighed 4.25 kilograms at birth. She began practicing yoga for postpartum recovery and became a yoga coach. "I love all beautiful things that make me look better," she said. "I chose the pattern of a crown with wings to cover the scar. It looks nice." ALY SONG/REUTERS
