How To Add To Tattoo

Recommended Posts

Hello! Okay, so I got this tattoo as a cover up a good couple of months ago, and have been trying to add to to it so that it doesn't look a "giant ink spot" as everyone likes to point out. We've tried using white ink to define the curls in her hair, but the ink didn't stay very well and it didn't end up looking how we imagined (we were attempting for it to define the afro a bit). So now I'm out of ideas, and in search of some new ones, so if anyone has any please share!

Thank you a ton!

or make a big, black band around your leg. 

Is an actual shop doing that to you?

OUCH. True, but OUCH.

In all seriousness, don't do death by a thousand pin pricks. Get it lasered and find someone else to fix it right. Putting a big splotch of black on your leg is not how a coverup is supposed to work.

That thing is like a panther in a cave eating a chocolate bar. Good luck, the idea is actually kind of cool, just not well executed.

    • Thanks @Gingerninja !    
    • 1) You can shave or they can...I always shave myself. 🙂 2) Yes (kinda). Bring your music and earbuds. Eat. Drink. Rest up the night before. Bring snacks. Lots of sugary snacks. Six hours is a long appointment. Bring a pashima or hoodie to make yourself extra comfy. Don't forget your phone charger! 3) You are going to be stressed about your flight but you will be fine. You will be all wrapped up! 4) There will be plenty options to drink you water, coconut water, Gatorade, etc. It's not like you are pinned down.  You got this! @naturalbornchiller
    • Hello! I hope that this is the right place to ask these questions - I've already read through the entire thread and found lots of excellent information, so thank you all for that!  I'm getting my left upper thigh and half of my back tattooed in December/January, and I was wondering, if I'm not very hairy (I'm Asian so really just a tiny bit of peach fuzz), will they shave me anyway before my tattoo? I'm also wondering if anyone meditates to help deal with the pain?  This is my first large tattoo (I have 2 fairly small ones already) and after reading through the back tattoo thread, I'm a little worried.  I already meditate now and practice breathing techniques, but I want to be as prepared as possible.   I have to travel for my tattoo (1.5 hour flight each way) and for my first session for the outline (6 hours scheduled), I have booked my flight in and out on the same day - was this a silly move?   Last question that might seem really dumb - if the majority of my tattoo will be on my back, I imagine I'll be lying down on my front a lot so I was wondering if I should get a straw to drink water from?
