Changing Your Tattoo
Mark Schwab (Tattoo Artist) gives expert video advice on: What is a 'cover up'? and more...
What is a 'cover up'?
Occasionally, we get people that are unhappy with their previous tattoo design. Tattoos can be covered up with other designs - we call it a tattoo cover up. Go in and talk to your tattoo artist, so we can then determine what types of design will successfully cover up your design. Remember that black has to be covered up with black, so we can't just tattoo skin colour over your existing tattoo.
Can any tattoo be covered?
Most of all tattoos can be covered in one shape or form. Go in and speak with your tattoo artist, so that you can determine what type of design is right for you and what will be going over that other tattoo. You definitely don't want it to look like one tattoo on top of the other. Remember, you are entering into a compromise situation; however, we are usually able to cover up most designs.
What should I consider before covering a tattoo?
You have already made a tattoo decision that you are unhappy with, so take your time in deciding what design will work out for you. Think long-term, because that is what tattoos are - they are forever.
