Coverup artist in France/Western Europe?

6 posts in this topic

So I have this god-awful hexagon tattoo (on top of it all the lines are such a mess ugh) that I got before I really got into good tattoos and I want to get it covered up so bad but I'm want to make sure I find an artist that can do a good job covering it up. I'm currently in Paris, so I was wondering if anyone knew who could do a badass coverup in France or maybe somewhere else in Western Europe? Also any ideas what could cover it up?

Thanks but I know of most of those shops. I'm looking for more specific recommendations, like someone that can bust out a rad coverup/that has done good coverups.

I've seen the guys from East Tattoo cover stuff like that with big dark-scaled koi. They did a guest spot in Paris this year, and will probably be back there at some point.

I'd think someone like Tin Tin would have, in his time, covered up more awkward pieces than that.

I think you should need to concern the covering artist that he/she will cover in such way that it doesn't look odd at all.

    • If you must get a tattoo with someone's name, make the lines as thin as possible.  If the relationship doesn't work out you could have someone tattoo over it with something else.
    • I'd say the quality with the faded/blended inks, the detail, and the anatomy/proportions. The look and presentation of the shop itself speaks volumes about the artists in the shop. You won't find a great tattoo artist in a dingy, dirty shop. Remember, this is technically a minor medical procedure, so run from a dimly lit, cramped, and dingy shop. But the No. 1 rule of thumb is to look at an artist's work—all of it! Look at the lines closely. Do they look nice and thin and clean and crisp? Do they look like they have bled, like holding a marker on paper too long? Does the skin look beat-up and red and bleeding? Look at the detail in the pieces in the artist's portfolio. Minute details are the difference between someone who wants to get you in and out of the seat for money and someone whose focus is solely making a great tattoo. Look for saturation and boldness of colors. Packing solid color into skin is difficult if inexperienced, and most will beat up the skin, and you will see blood and areas of light color.
    • Ok so it's been a few months now. Do I get some photos of an awesome tattooed belly to perve on or are you still deciding?  Don't leave us hanging.
