Newbie...Tribal chest cover up

Recommended Posts

You have an already huge piece of black. I don't see much hope in a cover up unless you consider tattooing the entire front side of your entire torso. Which would look killer.

That's not gonna take care of it. And you're gonna have a huge tattoo no matter what. Why don't you go see the person that did that hannya? Best advice for this job is to walk into a shop and talk an artist.

Internet advice on this is barely helpful at best. Someone needs to spend a few minutes drawing on you with some markers.

Silhouette wasn't the proper term, I meant "negative space"...Something like this:


I like that piece, Jun Cha on Matt Kemp I think..

as much as I like the tat it wouldn't work as a cover up as your artwork is already so black..

'white' tribal is probably the worst thing to try and cover up, if I was you, go the laser route, then go for the cover up..

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
