Cover up ?

Recommended Posts

@Scott R - are you sure about it not being a tumor? I have to remember to show that pic to my wife who loves all things relating to gross-body-shit. Hence her decision to marry me.

A wierd cover-up question...

I have quite a few covered-up "jailhouse" tattoos, and whenever I get a skeeter-bite that hits one of the old, buried ink lines, the entire OLD tattoo blows up. You can see it perfectly through the covering work, looks like it was scarified on. Lasts anywhere between an hour and a day.

No big deal, just wondering if anyone else has had/seen that kind of reaction, and what would cause it.

it does hurt, as soon as you think your adjusted to the pain it bites you again. Can't tell you if more than getting tattooed as my last tattoo was 20 years ago, worse bit for me is the itching a day or two after, it drives me crazy.

This just covered up without laser? My tattoo previous to lasering had scarring where the guy obviously went too deep and this used to blow up when hit by sun or when I scrubbed the skin but randomly since having laser the scarring seems to have disappeared. I'm not sure if the laser breaks down the dermis so it can re-heal without scarring or what but actually pretty impressed with that. Hopefully all stays well when it's re-tattooed.

Anyone else had a situation like that?

Just about all of my work is cover-up, and I have never had any lasering done. Did burn one small tat off with cigarettes when I was about 15...got in a fight the same day I put it on, it got a slice through it, and turned into a black blob. Wasn't fun, wasn't pretty, but it worked. Helluva scar, but that faded over the years, and it's covered now as well!

@Scott R

Thanks for this thread i have always been curious about the process, as i have only ever seen the after treatment effects. very cool to follow the progress, i can't wait to see what cool shit takes it's place.

i think i need to start planning to blast one of my arms and start over.

So one of my Brothers was getting divorced, and as part of the settlement, he had to pay his ex $200 to get his name, which she had tattooed on her shoulderblade, covered up. No big deal. He gave her the money, they got divorced, all is well.

A few months later, we see her at a party, and she asks do we want to see the cover-up? Sure!

Instead of covering his name, she had gotten a tattoo of a dog with it's leg lifted alongside it, pissing over it.

One of the best tats I've ever seen!

nice man, it looks like it faded quite a bit since the last session. Are you going to get any more treatments or start shopping for a cover up?

Scott you are so nearly there, yea i reckon an eagle will cover that well. Try to be patience and let your skin settle before the cover up.

You got any pits\scars from your blisters, i have a couple of pits on my arm, hopefully they will fade with time.

@bulldog I dont see any scarring in the pictures but you can start to see the original stuff before the tribal went on and it was all stick&pokes(over 20 yrs old now) no pits from blister and I dont have any acne scars or the such just freckles. I have a pretty big razor slice on one of my shoulder blades from a childhood altercation. my left arm has a tattoo over another razor slice and although solid black it took ink well
