Cover up tattoo

July 2, 2017

I have been tattooing a long time now .i have seen people come and go getting little shit tattoos when that was the trend and now come to try cover them with something much bigger now that's the thing to most people know I have work a lot with cover ups over the last 5 years .not many people know this but I did the first cover up Tv show in the uk about 5 years ago on TLC .then a couple of years ago came that dreadful show tattoo fixers on e4 .they lead people to believe you had to have half your back tattooed to cover a small name on your shoulder.well this just is not true at all .the simple rules of a cover up are what goes over it must be done using darker inks than what's in the old tattoo .so a red rose simply don't cover a black tattoo and look good when it's healed .i think doing a good cover up takes a lot of skill and experience.the artist needs to understand how the inks will heal and what will work over it .this comes after many years of tattooing .not a couple of years tattooing your mates in your kitchen before setting up a back street shop somewhere .i get a lot of people come to me for cover ups .and as we have seen after all the work I had to fix up that the tattoo fixers did .doing cover ups of a bad cover ups as become a big thing to .so if your looking to get a cover up done make sure the design you use is realistic and darker than the old tattoo .it don't have to be massive to work just needs to have the right tones to work over it and be the same type of same .make sure the artist you go to can show you work they have covered before when it's healed not freshly done that day .tattooist who specialises in cover ups are hard to find but look on line at people's work first and please don't go on tattoo fixers or believe anything they do on there show as theses photos from the show how good there cover ups are .
