Hello! New here and need cover up advice.


Recommended Posts

Hi all! I am now 30 years old and got my first tattoo on my 18th b-day and it has been an addiction every since. With my first tattoos I went with a local artist (the ONLY artist in my area) actually he did my first 3 at the time i though he was awesome then I met my current artist and he is AMAZING! He has done my last 4 and we are currently working on my cover up. I am having a hard time deciding though so I figured I would turn to you for help. He will be covering up one of my old tattoos (its about 8 years old) but it is big and on my forearm. I am attaching a picture of the tattoo in it current state (it has faded BAD) any advice would be great. I am in love with American Traditional and would like to go with that but dont know if it can be done. The biggest problem we are having right now is I moved out of state where my artist is and he will be in Chicago for a convention and that is where we will be doing the cover up So i really need your help! Thanks!

    • ... and xanax is on hand. Lol. My tattoo artist says I'm waaaaaaaay in my head. To the extremes.  It's strange. I feel fine with forearm tattoos tho. I do feel the couple I added yesterday helped a little, but I never wanted a "big" tattoo and it's just very jarring. Anxiety is a bitch. I wish I was more like...who gives a shit. All my tattoos have "zen" images and meanings, meanwhile I'm the furthest thing from zen there is. Lol. I guess I compare and question my design and need to get out of my head. My best friend is getting her tattoo from my guy BECAUSE of this tattoo of mine. And she has a gift certificate to somewhere else,  BUT she's going to him because of my tattoo. So, that says something. Says I need to shut up take a xanax and rock the damn tattoo. Lol.
    • Lol...no sleeves for me, that would send me straight to the grave. Lol. Thanks for your reply. I gotta get thru it and own it. I just got 2 new ones yesterday and it sorta brought it all together, but I still nit pick thos one apart. And I shouldn't but I do. I may have it wrapped around or something. Anxiety is the worst. Seriously awful. Wish my brain was care free
    • Anxiety sucks. What to do? Make it into a sleeve? Add tattoos around it? Make it part of a scene? I can relate to anxiety, but thankfully I never had tattoo regret. I’m in the last stages of a body suit, so if I did get it, I’d probably need a carload of Xanax.
