Cover-up tattoos are meant to hide a tattoo mistakes. We all make mistake in our life, and it might be time for you to consider getting one of your tattoo mistakes permanently fixed. Many things can lead to you wanting to cover an old tattoo but some of the most common are names of ex’s or images that no longer have meaning in your life as you move on.
It’s important to find a tattoo artist that has experience in doing cover-ups as these are often the most difficult of tattoos and as it usually takes a very skilled artist to fix a design from someone else.
Generally the artist will try and blur or hide your old tattoo under another design which sometimes can or can’t be done. I’d recommend being flexible with a design or image here, as you might not always be able to get what you want as an artist can only do so depending on what they are dealing with.
Hopefully you never find yourself in a situation where you need a cover-up tattoo, but rest lightly in knowing that we all make mistakes.
