 Scoliosis Tattoos

People have different ways of coping or embracing their scoliosis. While some may focus on camouflaging their spinal curvatures, others choose to put theirs on display. There appears to be a trend of individuals with scoliosis getting tattooed to celebrate their unique physique or commemorate a challenging experience they suffered as a result of it.

Just do a Google image search and you will see hundreds of scoliosis tattoos that link to each individual’s story. Here are some beautiful and… unusual… examples of scoliosis tattoos.

The simplest examples involve inspirational text. Many of which include the phrase “bent not broken” as it appears to be the unofficial slogan of scoliosis.
