Cover-up is a much more COMPLICATED process than starting a tattoo from a scratch.
The PROCEDURE looks quite simple: your previous and unwanted tattoo is replaced with a new one.
However, most of the time it is not as easy as it could be seen! 🤔
There are a lot of reasons to cover up a tattoo: poorly executed piece, unsatisfactory sketch, or change in the worldview of the owner. In such cases, COVER-UP and CORRECTION would be the best options to fix your old tattoo. 👌
Cover-up is a very important and crucial decision for BOTH customer and artist; therefore, in order to achieve the best results, you need to make sure that the tattoo artist is HIGHLY QUALIFIED to perform the job. 💪
— It is essential to follow the COLOR PALETTE from the old tattoo when covering up; if not, the old tattoo could be noticeable after. 🎨
— You CANNOT cover-up a DARK tattoo with a LIGHTER ink! ❌
— A new tattoo needs to be BIGGER than the old one. 👀
— An artist needs to have good IMAGINATION in order to choose the right cover-up style for your old tattoo. 😎
— DO NOT CONTRADICT your tattoo artist if (s)he says that the style you want WOULD NOT FIT! 🤭
When CHOOSING your tattoo artist, ask for a portfolio and a consultation.
You can make your decision based on the previous work; and you will be consulted and assisted by a PROFESSIONAL. Listen to your tattoo artist! 👂
