Advice on a cover-up

Recommended Posts

I need to cover up the name on my ankle and I have racked my brain out trying to come up with something but I am at a loss. I thought something with music, or something related to growing as a person, new life, anything to cover the name, possibly the entire tattoo. I just don't want something gigantic on my ankle. I'm willing to extend down to my foot just need help.

get two sessions of laser treatment, to lighten the tattoo. wait 6 months to let the skin settle, find a competent artist, and maybe get a rose tattooed over the top, classic, timeless, represents love and could possibly tie to growth etc. a colour tattoo will work way better to cover this design than a black & grey one. that's what i'd recommend

This might be the only appropriate time in life to say "...what she said." ^^^

@severgirl3 you recieved good advice by @CultExciter and @Graeme IMO. I am quoting valerie in hopes you read this a few more times and seriously consider . You just got an honest opinion from one of the best tattooers out there.
