New Cover Up - Eagle

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I recently had a tattoo covered up and wanted to get your thoughts on the cover up. The artist that did the cover up does very good work in my opinion. The original "USMC" tattoo was very crooked so I wanted to get it covered. I also went through 4 laser treatments before the cover up. Let me know your thoughts. I've attached a before and after image.

The laser treatments definitely hurt worse than the tattoo but they're really quick. There was actually quite a bit of color in the USMC tattoo. The only black was the actual lettering. The color is definitely harder to laser than black from my experience. What do you think of the cover up?

you can't see the old tattoo in the pic,but it could be a lot better.I only see one talon,and you can't make out the wings that good.Go to google images and type in Eagle Perched,and take a look at those compared to yours.

The other talon wasn't in the shot because of the angle I had to use for the picture. What would be a suggestion if I want to make the wings more pronounced? Would some highlights work?

Thanks, I think it's pretty sweet as well.

No, I was just wanting to show everyone and see what they thought. I thought the artist did a great job covering the old tattoo.

    • Hi, posting here since the advice forum was blocked. I'm seeking advice on a tattoo for males to cover a scar going around my entire waist. It's very hard to find anything suitable for males. The best I found was this image. I can't even tell if it goes all around the waist but it's absolutely beautiful.  If anyone can tell me if this is some specific style of tattooing.  The images are so vivid,  I would honestly like to replicate it but don't even know what to search for. Can't quite find the words to describe it. I appreciate the help. I tried an image search and couldn't find anything like it. Nor can I make out the details.     
    • I had a tattoo on my calf last Saturday, so just over a week ago. It was a 6 hour tattoo so quite big. It's been painful to walk, stand etc and has swollen if I've been on my feet - which I have been as I've been at work. The healing wasn't looking like my other tattoos, but have held off as I just thought where it's a different part of my body and a longer time having a tattoo that it could be why. I was still having plasma leaking from it yesterday. I finally phoned the non emergency number here and they didn't seem worried, told me to go to my own doctor in a few days. It started feeling hot to touch and I could see some pus. So I went to to A&E and although they don't think it's infected, they've given me antibiotics to be on the safe side, have wrapped it in a dressing which I need to go to my local nurse and get changed on Tuesday.  The reason for this post.........the nurse said it looks like it has deep scarring. Is this going to effect the overall look of my tattoo, I'm gutted this has happened. Does anyone have photos of tattoos after infections or after deep scarring has happened? 
    • I went to A&E in the end as it was starting to feel warm to touch too and had some yellow pus. They don't think it's infected, just very irritated but have given me antibiotics to be on the safe side. It's also in a dressing now which I need to get changed in a couple of days. Pleased I went with my instinct and went today rather than waiting. Thank you for your comment. They've said that some of it looks like I have deep scarring 😢 hoping my tattoo doesn't look shit once it's healed.
