That depends on how big and dark you want an adequate cover-up to be. 

I’m open to anything tbh I just want it gone and to have something more feminine

That will be no small project. Take the time to meet with an artist who understands and does good cover work. The artist can explain which colors will work and how much larger the cover piece will need to be to allow proper blending, shading and design. Plan on multiple sessions.

When I hear, "I just want it gone" it makes me think they are in a hurry. Desperation for a quick coverup is a recipe for disaster.  Every coverup is harder than the last, so take your time and get it right.

Hey there...just breathe. When did you get it? Don't rush into anything. Don't let it control you. It can be fixed one way or another.

I got it January 16 :( A day after my 20th birthday

I think it's a good tattoo, so there's that. What is it that's bothering you? Don't mean to pry...you don't have to answer.

I feel masculine and ugly with it.

“Think before you ink!” 

It’s a good tattoo and a coverup will be a disaster. Learn to love it, add to it to make it more feminine, or get started with the laser treatments. Believe me, I’m the master of getting coverups, blast overs, and redoing tattoos. I’d leave that one alone!

Ah, gottcha. You'd be surprised to know how many women have imagery like this! I think it's bad ass... Take a bunch of deep breaths and do research on coverups. Where are you located?

I thought about that too when I got it but now I’m just freaking out. The negative opinions plus my own insecurity have made this a nightmare. Should’ve put it in a more private place but oh well can’t change the past. And I live in Puerto Rico.

Well, screw what people say. Their reactions tell you more about them than anything about you. My suggestion: own it. Use it to power you while you figure out your options. 

Imma try girl! I just feel like the dumbest person in the world right now...

Its also super confusing cause some people say it cant be covered others say it can others say i should fade with laser others say i dont have to others say laser is a waste of time and etc. Like theres just so much uncertainty.

Do you think laser would work on the type of tattoo i have?

Hey, if this is the worst thing that ever happens to you (or the dumbest) then you are golden. PR has some great artists and a couple of great conventions where you could find artists that travel. Do your research! Also, give that badass tattoo a nice feminine name. Hahaha!

You have a point there...and I have talked to two dudes so far and one said he couldnt cover it yet the other said the typical rose cover up and imma see others. I do agree, I love my family and even have a best friend and have uni and everything (even tho i didnt go this semester) yet I dont know how or why this has affected me so much. To the point of not eating or wanting to wake up from sleeping so I dont have to see it. I literally spend hours and hours looking at laser removal reviews and checking cover up artists and examples. I just cant find peace girl, it sucks. I know its stupid but knowing its stupid doesn’t make the feeling go away.

    • @bongsau glad to hear you're hanging in there! if  you're willing to share, I'd love to see pics of that paint job. Sounds super interesting! i went thru a broken engagement back in the late 2000s. We had just bought a condo together and she left me with a single income right when the housing bubble was bursting. Perfect timing. I also had some dark times, but good friends and family helped shine some light on shit and brighten things up. I eventually fell in love again with my current wife of nearly 10yrs. We ended up foreclosing on the condo, like many Americans, coz the mortgage wasn't worth it and my new lady wasn't digging the spot that didn't feel like her own. That said, we got to live there for at least a few months without paying the rent! hahahhahaha... it was kind nice to somewhat feel what actually OWNING a home would be like, not having to pay the bank. Anyways... i guess i'm just pointing out that cons, pros, ups, and downs come with the ticket to ride. That time taught me many lessons about myself and life, in general. Still learning with far to go! Sending the strongest good juju your way, my man! 🙌💨💞
