Cover up Tattoos

Cover ups are tattoos that go over another tattoo and hide the old tattoo.  There are a few ground rules for cover ups.

  • The only thing that completely covers black is black.
  • You can’t cover a darker color with a lighter color.
  • Cover ups need to be larger than the original tattoo.  Usually, significantly larger
  • Tattoos do not change the texture of the skin so if there are any scars they will still be there after the cover up is done.
