Cover up tattoos generally refer to a tattoo designed specifically to go over the top of an existing design … or ‘cover it up’, so to speak.
The reasons to cover up a tattoo can be many – you may have previously entrusted your body art to an unqualified or unprofessional artist, or you may have chose a design that brings back painful memories of a particular person. Either way, at Magnum Tattooing in Grand Rapids you’ll find our artists can help you find a great tattoo to cover up the past.
Styles of cover up tattoos
There are many tattoo styles to consider when looking for body art, but some more than others will be good for cover up tattoos. Certain black and grey tattoos may work well, but given the amount of natural skin cover left by these designs, color tattoos may be an easier choice.
From there, you can choose cover up tattoos of most any style, including realistic or traditional tattoos. Of course, you’ll need to choose a design size that will completely cover up the existing tattoo.
