    Default Tattoo cover up ideas

    anybody got any ideas for a tattoo cover up for me?

    i got this done when i was 9 years ago when i was 18 and i now hate it, i'd ideally just like some tribal thing to go over it, down my arm, chest, back and a bit on the neck but the shops i've been too said a tribal would look daft as it would have to be fat to cover it....

    .....i need some ideas peeps..... and i'm not too stuck on japanese dragons and fish

    sorry about the piq quality but iphone cameras are crap lol

    What happens in another 9 years when you realise the cover up looks fucking ridiculous too? Amputation is the way forward.

    Fat tribal can work, have a look at Kerry Kings for instance (it's almost the same as George Clooney's in From Dusk Till Dawn).

    see now i think that fat tribal looks ok, i really want tribal not some japanese fish or dragon..... think i'll put that pic onto a usb and take it to a shop.... cheers mike

    i looked into laser treatment and it costs 60 per session and for a average professional tattoo can take anthing from 5-20 sessions.... maybe more.... so if it takes 20 sessions as the colour is still good x 60=1200 = bollox to that lol

    well hello biffo

    i would prefer tribal tbh bud, not really fussed on pictures or portraits, however i would have one if i saw one that i liked...... one tattooist mentioned getting something like a celtic cross to cover it then tribal coming off it?

    Lasering depends on the type of machine the shop has. lots of places are using cheap junk from china now and it takes forever to remove tattoos.
    It's hard to tell from the pic, but it looks mostly black ink with a bit of red. Well black is the best ink to get rid of. Even one session with a decent machine would lighten up a mostly black tattoo quite a lot and give you a lot more choice on coverups.
    I think Ultimate Skin in leeds has a good laser. There's a shop in York which has a shit hot one for removing black ink.. I'm pretty sure it's Ruby Arts. But can't quite remember.
    The guy who owned the last shop I worked at went there for his removal and almost all the black was gone in one session!

    as for actually covering it up... although you can cover old tattoos with a lot of things. Unless you are going darker, the old tattoo WILL eventually start to show through as the new one ages.
