Tattoo coverups are transformative for the client as well as the design. I was honored to recreate this piece!

Before and after rework on this floral rib piece – with the addition of the bird to accentuate fit and flow. And she sat for this in one shot BOOM!

It was an honor to rework this piece, designed by Haida Master Artist Bill Reid. Reworking detail in an old tattoo requires time and patience, but recovering that clarity breathes life back into the tattoo.

Fresh Ink! Half sleeve in progress (including two coverups) – this phase incorporating rich sunflower and wheat colors and textures!

The asymmetry, imperfection and constant transition of the natural world is what makes it so striking and humbling. When working with floral elements, consider working with those unique transitional moments rather than the ever present Kodak moment poster child bloom – such as a budding bloom, a bloom just past it’s prime or a windswept blossom.

Tattoos are a commitment, and they’re only as permanent as the passing times in our lives.
 Coverups are a way for tattoos to change and grow with us!
 When considering a coverup, I recommend temporarily forgetting it’s a coverup. Think of two or three ideas that you’d love to have if you were getting a brand spankin’ new tattoo. Email me with questions or to set up a consult and we’ll discuss and plan the piece. Once we have the concept in place, the key to a quality coverup is flexibility in size, detail, texture and color – these allow us to transition the old into the new!

I love a good coverup – and what makes a for solid coverup is a client knows what they want their new tattoo to be, and who’s open to the creative process and flexible in how we get there.
 This is a fantastic example of having a solid design idea to begin with –
 a stained glass inspired Cicada – and then flexibility in size, detail, color, texture and flow to let the new tattoo take on a life of its own. LOVE this piece!
