Cover Up tips

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.

If you have questions about coverups, email me.

Yggdrasil in Iceland

Auja’s newest tattoo is ready to travel back to Iceland! I’m loving the way the Northern Lights postcard turned out. A beautiful representation of the Yggdrasil. Gotta love a custom tattoo – plus it’s a coverup!

Skull texture

In progress… The texture in this skull, cross bones and rosary works well to cover the old black tribal tattoo beneath. Next time we’ll add color highlights to provide contrast and – SNAP, cover up!

Impossible… Not at all

When someone comes into my studio and tells me they’ve been told the tattoo cover up they want is “impossible”, the smile on their face as they leave with their NEW custom tattoo is THE BEST.

I love the challenge of a cover up! Very few things are “impossible”. It’s all in how you approach it.
