The older tattoo was simple comedy and tragedy masks. The tattoo was not well done and need to be upgraded. Keeping with a color theme that will add to her lower back tattoo, we came up with these colorful roses.
Another successful cover up! There is no sign of the old tattoo.
American eagles are great tattoo themes. This small tattoo of a soaring eagle was poorly thoughtout and done. Thinking out what the finished tattoo will look like and age on your body is something important to consider. Working with a good tattooist a plan should be drawn up and then tattooed.
So with a plan of covering up the smaller tattoo with a freshly styled patriotic eagle tattoo. Going with an old school style with bold lines and solid colors this design covered the old tattoo.
The finished eagle tattoo has a whole different atitude. Proud American!
Classic old tattoo ready to be covered up. These original tattoos were done way too small and lacked definition.
Keeping with the flowers to make a cover up work we selected roses I added the banner and parents name along with the year of their marriage.
So it seemed like a good idea at the time, but no matter what you tattoo on your skin you can always have it altered or covered up. Recently I covered up some names and some old tattoos that have out lived their glitter.
The after tattoo is complete and there is no sign of the old tattoo. Flowers on the lower back is a much better tattoo designs. So think before you ink. A well placed tattoo can be changed in the future when it has out lived its charm.
This was a first for me, using celtic tattoo designs to cover up an armband tattoo. Tattoo cover ups are always a challenge, not something to take liightly. Plan out your next tattoo and avoid the need for a tattoo removal or cover up.
The great American eagle cover up? Sounds like a political cover up, but it’s not. Here is an example of my work covering up a branding on his left and a band log on his right side of his chest.
The finished tattoo cover up. Let me know what you think.
