Scars testify that a painful event has been overcome. They represent the last step of a long and difficult path. They demonstrate the regenerative power of the flesh, which begins its healing process as soon as it is defaced. As long as the heartbeats and blood flows through the veins, the body will never stop healing wounds. Metaphorically they symbolize life and the ability to overcome obstacles. It is only after death that a wound will not heal and a scar will never be generated. Scars always tell a story.
