The Art of the Coverup.
Cover up tattoos do require a little more creativity
and as such it's best to give a general idea of what you'd like and let me have an element of freedom to work the old tattoo into the new one, rather than trying to be too exact about a specific picture. Old ink cannot be removed by tattooing new ink over it, in other words, the new image must use parts of the old image to disguise it rather than just being placed over the top.
Be aware that the new tattoo will need to be Bigger than the old one and in certain cases it may be best to have the old tattoo lightened with laser removal. (Please note that Epona Tattoo does not offer this service).
It is usually best to have a consultation appointment to discuss the designs and I will need photos of the old tattoo and pictures from yourself showing the sorts of tattoos you do like. These can be emailed through to me when you make the appointment for the consultation so that I have a chance to prepare properly and think through your ideas.
Please check out the cover up tattoos below to see how I've already turned unloved ink into tattoos that make the wearer feel happier. If you have any questions please feel free to
