    Tattoo Cover Up Pictures, Before and After

    I've been looking at a lot of tattoo cover-up pictures recently and figured it'd be cool to see what cover-ups LSTers have both gotten as well as tattooed. So if you have before and after pictures please post them up.

    Here's a recent one I found on Sarah Schor's Blog from King's Avenue in New York. I really like the use of the hair in this lady head to cover-up the old tattoo lettering.

    For me I enjoy seeing cover-ups that could stand on their own without being a cover-up. What I mean is yes the old tattoo is not visible but had you not had to have it placed where it is you would get in anywhere and anyways.

    Lets see 'em.......

    I've liked Shinges apprentice Tomo's back piece. Worked with what the guy had, and transformed it.

    [edit] Wow, so I cant speak english right now.

    Ok...I'm having one done right now...I had this taz done when I was 18...



    This is the first stage of the cover up started last Monday:





    The next appointment is the 25th of this month. I hated that taz. I'm glad it will be covered.

    As a cautionary tale against scratching, here is an atrocity I did, pre-apprecticeship in 1991, and what I covered it up with recently.

    Re: Tattoo Cover Up Pictures, Before and After

    I don't have any cover-ups on my body but I tattoo a hell of a lot of them.
    Most of the larger work that I do (bigger than 1/2 sleeve) usually incorporates some kind of cover-up.
    I started to make a point of NOT taking a 'before' picture. Sometimes I do, but I found that the cover-up requests got bigger and bigger the more cover-ups I showed. Covering a half sleeve sized tattoo with a full sleeve compromises the end product but I sometimes enjoy the challenge and the problem-solving aspect of it.

    This is one of the more tricky ones from last year or so, when I used to take 'before' photos:


    I got an email today asking if I could cover a full sleeve - with a sleeve.
