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.

What an awesome morning! A first tattoo, on a chaplain, celebrating her 75th birthday. And she rocked it!

One of the best things about tattooing is the wide variety of fantastic people I get to meet and work with every day!

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!
