Archive of Cover Ups

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!

Because sometimes it’s time to breathe new life into a tattoo! Re coloring or reworking a tattoo are great options when it’s a design you’d like to keep instead of covering it up!

Incorporating old tattoos within a newer, bigger tattoo is a great way to unify your ink! Here we used the Celtic Knot as decoration on the Viking ship sail. Loving the black and gray use of variations in texture.

The Fun-O-Meter needle is topping out on this one!
 I spent the day in blacksmith mode, customizing this full sleeve of armour. I drew most of the design directly on his arm in order to maximize fit and flow within the design. Looking forward to phase two when we complete the coverup, add the chainmail and incorporate shading to provide texture and dimension.

In progress! A solid start on a custom family tree, incorporating multiple influences from family to nuances of Minnesota – and a coverup! When complete, this tree will have a subtle Celtic knot work texture in the bark.

Fresh ink from yesterday at Art With a Point! This is the newest addition to a full tattoo sleeve in progress. We’re incorporating several coverups and additions to bring various design elements together as one cohesive sleeve. Good times!

Here’s a nice coverup from today! While I prefer to avoid relying on black and gray to cover color, this design lent itself well for several reasons:

1. Size large – bigger always covers better than smaller.
2. Detail – serves well to distract from the underlying tattoo.
3. Shading and texture – the black shadows and textures provide ways to camoflage existing lines and color.
4. Flexibility – with coverups it’s always helpful to be willing to have some flexibility with everything from detail to size and position.
