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.

    • Update: The weird pinpricking lasted about two days and went away on its own. Tattoo is on track and healing normally. My doc said it was likely some sort of auto-immune response, as I don't seem to be allergic. Not sure if it will happen on future tattoos, since it had never happened to me before. 
    • hey all! i just got my fourth tattoo 4 days ago, and it’s the first one that’s visible to me 24-7 (others are on my back, my upper arm, and my inner lip). i’ve even paranoid about this healing process because i see it all the time! my lines have gotten a little bit thicker. i’m wondering if this is normal healing or if this is the beginning of a blowout. which do you think? i know that either way, it will be at least 3-4 weeks to see the final results. do any of you still get anxious when you’re in the healing phase? thanks 🐝
