It is best to wait at least a year after an invasive surgical or non-surgical trauma before considering tattooing over any kind of a scar, as it takes that long for skin to heal to a more permanent state.
Scars are difficult to tattoo over, often because of the variations between normal skin and scar tissue and the depth and thickness of the scar tissue itself. Stretch marks are especially difficult to cover because they are so inconsistent, many times with uneven ridges, and there is a tendency for the ink to spread out underneath the skin on those thinner areas. Unfortunately, there is no way to tell by simply looking at the skin how it's going to behave until the tattoing process begins. Because of this, the technique for covering scars requires more discipline in the application.
For custom designs on scars, stretch marks, birthmarks, etc., prices vary and are subject to the hourly rate determined at the time of consultation. For revision of both nipples, bilateral, in clients post-mastectomy, a flat rate will be charged.
