Too Small – As a general rule the a tattoo that end up being be “covered up ” by another design will end up being larger than the original piece. If initial company was established tattoo is two inches by 2 inches than the cover could no when compared with 4 inches by 4 inches and ideally would be much larger. Making the new tattoo design larger than the old one allows the artist room in fresh design to hide the old tattoo with out losing the integrity for this new design.
Too Light – Tattoo inks are applied in a scale from light to dark. While tattooing a darker color can stain a lighter color, so the waterproof tattoo cover up artist while coloring the tattoo begin by doing all the dark colors first than the light colors. This also will apply to the tattoo cover up, a tattooed color can only be covered with a darker color my.e if you have a red tattoo it will eventually need to be covered by black or blue, not yellow or orange. Choosing the right colors is a big part of getting a cover up that will look good after it has healed.
Too Detailed – Probably the biggest complaint about finished cover up tattoos is that you could still see at first the company tattoo threw the new design. Some of the reason this happens is the design chosen as a protective cover up was to detailed from the start. The idea along with a cover up is to hide the original design while keeping the integrity for this new design. Can buy the ways and also by using be done is scaling back regarding the detail of the tattoo, replacing detailed line work with thick lines and bold fields of color will help cover the original design while keeping the new tattoo clear and readable.
