There are hundreds of reasons for erasing a tattoo or feeling regretful for it, such as breaking up with girlfriend, wanting to do something to change or finding it so ugly and not want it to be in yours any more. Get rid of a tattoo, you choose which way? I choose Tattoo cover up and I call it by name “Tattoos of unlimited creation”
What Is Tattoo Cover Up? Let Me Tell You!
Tattoo cover up is replacing an old tattoo by a new one. In fact, covering up a tattoo does not mean that you cover totally the old one; it means you mix up aesthetically both of them. You should never think that it is just painting a new one and hiding the old one, you should think about a work of art and creation. The chief thing needing remember is that the new one should be dense enough to intimidate the old one.
Think Carefully Before Making The Last Decision
We all know clearly that having a tattoo is not easy and sweet and so does covering up a tattoo, which is so hard, hurt and expensive. Therefore, you should think carefully and deeply before making the last decision. Let think about what is your first purposes, your values and the cost for whether trying to erase previous tattoo or having cover-up. There is one thing you need to notice is that cover-up can leave shadowy or muddy look regardless of how talented your tattooist is.
What Can You Do?
After having the last decision to choose cover-up to renew yourself and be different, what you can do now is looking thoroughly your old tattoo and give me the answer if it is old and week enough to be coverable. Never underestimate in this step, which if you miss, your tattoo is just a mixture of two tattoos competing space and being meaningless. Mixing them harmoniously is what you need for your tattoo cover up.
I will tell you about the rule of color in cover-up. There are some tattooists make mistakes when do not know the fact that black cannot be covered by anything. So if you meet a professional tattooist, he will black first and color later. Unfortunately, your older black tattoo can be fading and turned into grey, which is tough to deal with and easily create shadow for your new tattoo. Somehow, you can use laser to treat this grey, which is like rubbing out some unnecessary details to have the best picture on yours.
It Depends On Your Old Tattoo And You Will Have A Suitable New One!
If your tattoo is small, you should think about a big and strong new one. If your one is so black, remember to use laser and weaken it before deciding covering up anything. You also should think about the size of new tattoo. It is obvious that it must be bigger than the old tattoo in order to have the balance between all areas of colors in your work of art.
To sum up, I want to notice you that you already had a tattoo; this cover-up is your second try, you know exactly how dreadful it is, so you must be full possession of your senses, looking for as much as information about it and making the last decision.
