Do you have a tattoo that you wish you didn’t have?
Maybe it was not done well, hasn’t withstood the test of time, or no longer holds the significance it once did. Maybe you just simply no longer like it.
If any of these things sound familiar, you might be a good candidate for a cover up.
Things to know about cover ups
A true coverup doesn’t just mean placing any image over the old one.
Our goal for your cover up tattoo is to beautifully conceal your old tattoo making it extremely difficult, if not impossible to see the old tattoo. Because of this, certain colors and types of images may not work well as a cover up. For instance, you would not want to attempt to cover a green leaf with an image with lots of light colors. Often times, deeper, richer colors and images with lots of lines and textures make for good cover up ideas.
You may need to have a larger area of your skin tattooed with your cover up piece in order to fully conceal your old tattoo. If you do not tattoo a larger area than what was previously tattooed, there is a very high likelihood that your old tattoo will be very visible through the new one.
At American Classic, we have artists that have extensively studied the art of camouflaging and concealing old tattoos with new ones. We take your experience and your end result very seriously and are committed to giving you great results. Come see us when you’re ready to get the best tattoo cover up in the area! When it comes to planning your cover up, more is more. Our cover up artists love to see multiple references and ideas. This helps them really get inside your head and take your ideas and make them work the best way possible.
