Recommended Posts

hey guys i started this tattoo cover up i used to have big letters in black going down. i realize the tattoo wasnt going to be great since its a covered up but i lost faith in the guy who started and insisted he can finish better. what are my chances of making this look decent?to me from far or even close just looks like a black patch ... would i be able to add an skeleton face any how? thanks for the help.

I believe there's almost nothing a good coverup artist can't make shine. There are artists out there who specialize in coverups, you know :) 

I'll use electriclinda here in Norway as an example:

Anything's possible!

I totally agree. Anything is possible. Just depends on the research you're willing to do, the money you're willing to spend, and the traveling miles you're willing to cash. Don't let anyone deter you--because it will happen. And don't stop until you find what you want. If I had gone off the "advice" of a couple of posts here, I would have been extremely upset. Instead, I found a rose in concrete. Best wishes!!

Hi there!

Sharing my experience on laser removal. I started the process last year on a small wrist tattoo and I've had seven treatments with a Q-switched laser. It's a crappy tattoo done by a crappy artist...live and learn. In my situation, the tattoo is barely budging. It's lighter for sure but still not light enough for a coverup. To date, I've spent $600 on removal. The tattoo was done deep with a weird black ink that's being super stubborn. In February, I have an appointment to hit it with a Pico laser. Maybe by this time next year, it will be solid for a coverup with medium to lighter colors.

Just a reminder that it's going to be a journey, not a quick fix!

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
