    Cover-up tattoo artist

    I would like to know what is the best way to find a good cover-up tattoo Artist? Can every tattoo artist do a cover-up? Do all Artist like to do cover-ups? I'm having a real hard time finding one that has cover-up experience, i have found a few that say they are experts, but after looking at their work i get the feeling that the reason why they are the only ones that do it is because no one else in the shop wants to do it. Their work is not very impressive! So what do you look for on an Artist that does cover-ups? If there is any Artist out there in California that can fix/re-work or cover what i have please contact me.

    laser it once or twice, then cover it. you'll be much happier with the results.

    I know of some tattooers that are good with cover-up's but they never take pictures of before and after and put them in their portfolio.But i would beware of people saying their experts at cover-ups.I look for an artists that does solid work,and who's work has depth to it.I would also recommend doing laser treatment,especially since black responds well to the laser.check out Brian & Jeremiah@ Kari Barba's Outer Limits Tattoo and Piercing in Long Beach.
