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!

    • I am wanting a colorful big lotus on my shoulder (will be my first tattoo), and am finding artists that I like although their work is almost all in black. Is an artist who is talented in black not necessarily skilled with color?   Also, I am in Colorado and would definitely appreciate artist recommendations 
    • I did reply to this but for some reason it didn’t work.... so excuse me if for some reason I’ve posted this story twice.    a similar thing happened to me, but with my grandad. He unfortunately had a stroke and lost his marbles - previously a very proud man (an architect) and wasn’t overly fond of tattoos however.. I got a fairy tattooed on my shoulder about 10 years ago representing my grandparents because I went fairy hunting with them as a young child and it was such a special, magical time in my childhood that I wanted to keep a reminder.. anyhow. After he had his first stroke (unfortunately he had numerous) I showed him, he had tears in his eyes and stroked her gently and told me how beautiful she was. It really upset me but in a good way, because I knew at that moment it meant something to him too.    I also have “tomorrow’s another day” tattooed on my collarbone because it’s a saying my dad told me growing up (he suffered with depression, as did I growing up) so it was a constant reminder to try and remember that although today may be shit... tomorrow will hopefully be better. 
    • @oboogie that’s adorable. I want an old lady to touch my arm haha @Hollie yeah that seems to be the general consensus- doesn’t matter what people think as long as yr good with it. I think I was just seeking affirmation that it wasn’t a ‘bad tattoo’ / ‘done poorly.’ Ya know that pesky self doubt that a creeps around the brain!
