Covering a belly scar can be a challenge because the skin is softer than other parts of the body. Each scar is unique and requires careful thought about the tattoo design.

China has one of the highest rates of babies born by caesarean section in the world. Although the surgery to deliver babies has dramatically advanced over the decades, the scars left behind still trouble some women.

But one volunteer is offering a novel solution.
