Think I Could Cover This Tattoo Up?

Recommended Posts

A week or two ago I got this tattoo of ocean waves and the artist did not do a good job on the waves. I am interested in getting a cover up and was wondering if this is doable? Obviously the colors would need to be darker and even then maybe black/grey?, not sure if this is possible. Thanks.

covering the new one with something like the 2nd photo? No. 

Covers work best when it can blend into a larger piece. If you're wanting to stay small you're going to need to lighten it with lazer (after at least a fair amount of healing time).

    • I think it looks amazing!!! I actually really really love it. Don't worry, it's easy to have tattoo remorse. Especially for bigger pieces-- really, you just need some time to adjust to the change. Hopefully soon you will start feeling it as part of yourself!
    • funny thing with me, in the 80's when I started getting tattooed, I started on my lower arms, from my biceps to my wrists first. LOL now they are everywhere on my body, actually in the last 10 years or so of getting tattooed I have been placing them in the most visible spots I can find, now running out of visible room. I'm lucky,my work is 100% good with visible tattoos and I love showing them in my work and personal life, many of my coworkers also have tattoos. I love the attention I get and conversations I have because of my tattoos.
    • Yep. It all depends on how the artist's design fits in/around your existing work.  In any case many laser techs charge by the minute (with a minimum), and both of those old ones aren't very big - so hitting the black shouldn't add much if any extra expense overall for each session. They are dark enough that you'll likely need 3-4 sessions to lighten it up a good bit.
