This Instagram-Famous Tattoo Artist Uses Ink To Camouflage Stretch Marks, Dark Circles, And Scars!

Ah, stretch marks. Tiger skin. Battle scars. Everyone gets them. They’re completely normal, and today, a lot more women have been accepting and embracing them. But because everyone is entitled to do what they want to their own bodies (your body, your rules!)— it’s also great to have options, just in case you decide to cover them up.

One method is using permanent ink. Rodolpho Torres, a tattoo artist based in São Paulo, Brazil, developed a modern technique he calls Método Agulhas Mágicas ("The Magic Needles Method"), which can cover up scars, dark under eyes, and even stretch marks!

Rodolpho carefully and strategically uses colored, hypoallergenic ink to create an illusion of smoother skin. The best part? This can be done for all skin tones, and on different areas of the body! His unique, innovative method is celebrated across the world, earning him a massive number of 1.6 million followers on Instagram.

Here are some photos and videos of his works—and to be honest? They’re extremely satisfying to watch!

Aside from these, Rodolpho also offers services like lip tattoo and areola enhancement.

Some dermatologists voiced their criticisms about this new method—because skin changes over time, the ink may one day appear different. However, plastic surgeon Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz told Tattoodo that this method is by far the easiest way to get rid of stretch marks.
