Tattoo cover up

Post by billinom8s » Dec 27th, '17, 19:44

So, I've got a tattoo on my chest, now over the years it has blurred and morphed into something that is quite offensive and can give out the wrong impression of me.

So i'm taking a chance here but throwing it out there - what ideas you lot have for a tat to cover up mine??????

I would go to NR Studios and get something custom designed but I would go for something like mechanical

Was always impressed with the work


New tribe tattoos in Brixham did,

But now would more look into lazer removal rather than a cover up unless they can get something to look right

I did, just fancy something there instead of a burn mark is all.

What is it you have there, or had originally?

I was going to suggest an orbital sander but Mellow beat me to the punch.

My mrs had some blurred old tattoos changed and they look good now.

It was a bird(winged type) that was done in an Aztec block method. Unfortunately time has not been kind to it and it now looks like an SS eagle. :shock:

Is that the place you go with a small tattoo that looks crap and come out with something that still looks crap but 50 times the size of the original one? :roll:

It was bigger than I remembered it =))

Saw a good logo today for some bike clothing, with two crossed pistons. That looked quite cool 8)
