Tattoo cover up is revealed. Step by step how I covered up the past and created a new tattoo. Maybe you or someone you know has a reminder of their past that they would rather  erase, well if it is tattooed in your skin then the best answer is a tattoo cover up. No matter what the old tattoo is the final results should be something that you would want to have and that it covers up.

Check out the results that your artist has gotten with other cover ups, those result should not be some big black blob.
