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.

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!

Get a Cover Up

Awesome cover up today – good times! I maintain that the best way to get rid of an old tattoo is to cover it with a new custom tattoo. Something you choose that you’re proud to wear.
 Laser removal is not necessary – a tattoo cover up is more successful, doesn’t scar, is less expensive and can often be completed in just a session or two. Check out more cover ups here:

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!
