Hi All from Ottawa, Canada

Hi, I'm Jerry from Ottawa, Ontario and I have 4 tattoos and one of them needs to be covered. It's a tribal sun that I have on the base of my neck. It's a crappy tattoo and my ex-wife has a matching on on her lower back. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on something good to cover it with. The tattoo is over 10 years old now. The picture I am posting is once it was healed.

Keep in mind that you will probably need to cover this with something 4-5 times the size to really hide it. And you'll likely need a design that can work in/around this tribal to hide it effectively, unless you fade it further with lasering. Luckily there is enough negative space that a creative and clever artist will have plenty to work with.

Hey Jerry, with where the tattoo is located the cover up will have to extend up your neck and down your back a little bit. Have you ever considered starting a nice back piece??

whats up Jerry, welcome.

easy - slap a big bold black rose with some spiky leafs. it will pop out of your t-shirt collar and leave people wondering. so then you will have to up the ante and get a big ass panther down your back and tiger fighting a snake up your torso. it's a slippery slope haha. but the cover-up can be easily achieved.

    • There's nothing wrong with it. Don't worry. Just enjoy it.
    • It's healing. It won't fully heal for 4 to 6 weeks. Just let it heal and don't smother it with anything.
    • Hi! So I got my first tattoo ten days ago. They are fine line tulips and they are so beautiful. The thing is, it's kinda getting darker, darkening the delicate the details of ir too. Is this normal? I always heard the tattoo Will go lighter as it heals but it's being the opposite for me. It has pretty much flaked off completely so i'm scared it might be the way this heals and thats it. Please help. Here are some pics The first is right after I got it and the second one is now.  Also something yo know I put the film to sleep for like 2 more nights after I got it which later I ask my artista and he Say I really shouldn't xD could this have some influencia on how it's looking now? Thanks for the help
