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.

Sweet Peas

Fresh pea pods! Originally based off of a woodcut design of a single pea pod, we customized this tattoo to represent a number of life passages. And added some greens to give the woodcut style vibrancy.

Watercolor Lotus

A watercolor lotus tattoo! Love the deep palette of colors here and the way the palette works with negative space to create depth within the bloom. The nice size provides room for detail within each petal in this custom watercolor tattoo.
