Black and Gray Coverup

Here’s a fresh spankin’ new custom coverup done in black and gray! Successful cover ups are all about flexibility with size, detail, textures and color. All of these elements work together to blend the old tattoo into the new tattoo. While color is typically necessary to nail a solid coverup, in this design the size, detail and texture came together beautifully to complete this black and gray geometric Mandala.

And my speakeasy neighbor comes above ground for one shining moment!
 
 Check out the article in today’s Minneapolis Star Tribune!
 
 “Volstead’s Emporium opened late last year in Minneapolis with no promotion, website or social media listing of its Lyn-Lake area address. Emblematic of the Prohibition era, guests must navigate a dark alley until they stumble upon a door with an eye-level slot, leading to the subterranean sanctuary of red velvet and chandeliers.”

St. Michael

Fresh Ink! Had a great time tattooing this black and grey forearm panel of the Archangel Michael today.
 
 I elaborated on this classic image with detail including clouds, smoke and texture. Gotta love a custom tattoo designed uniquely for the client. That’s how we roll!

Pig on a Bike Coverup

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!
