Should we add a Real life explination for the trope? Scar's are the result of repaired tissue, esuntually new tissue, un tanned, some scar tissue has the inability to tan. The deeper the wound, the more likly infection will set in, the scar tissue only does skin, not the musle under it, so it will have a red over layer. Skin tone, infection, type of weopon used, (burn scars heal slowly depending on the degree). It should be noted, but doen't know the best way to incoperate it into the wiki.

I second the idea of "Real Life" being a category, as there ARE cases where people have refused to remove a scar as a badge of honour (and not just for scarification). Niki Lauda in particular comes across as a Real Life example of the trope (he received severe burns to the head in the 1976 German Grand Prix, and has refused reconstructive surgery other than for his eyelids because he pretty much considers the scars a sign that he's a Badass Survivor).
