Mark check out Tim Pangburn (Tim Victim)cover up work to see what is possible in cover ups. Don’t settle for some crappy cover up.


Wow. I had no idea that such things were possible with really dark tattoos. I’m guessing that most artists wouldn’t be able to do this stuff? I live in scotland, and I’m trying to find someone with plenty of experience. So far I haven’t found anyone with cover work comparable to this.



You can always get a few laser hits to lighten it first if you wanted something beside tribal.
That said if you like tribal then get it done – there are plenty of decent artists who could do a nice design that you like.

The key is what makes you happy not what we prefer.

If you want something other than tribal and want to stay fairly local my advice is get the orig lasered and start afresh.

Take care

The only difference between a person with tattoos, and a person without is this. The person with tattoos does not care if you do not have any.

Thanks. I’ve seen a few places advertising laser, but I’ve never been sure whether to trust them. Is the idea (for a black tattoo) just that you can lighten it and then be able to cover with something other than black? Do I need to know anything in order to choose the right place, or will all laser treatments be the same?
