    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?

    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.

    Its just supposed to be hiding the original symbol. It is obviously just a rough sketch – I wouldn’t get that done as it is! And now I’ve realised what should have been an obvious ambiguity in my original post. I drew over it in MS Paint, so that the original symbol wouldn’t be obvious. I didn’t paint over it.

    That is interesting. Thanks a lot. Maybe I just haven’t been able to find any good artists. I’ve been to quite a few and haven’t found any that have suggestions other than tribal. That said, I actually quite like tribal. Doesn’t seem to be in fashion these days (and seems to get a bad rap from folk who consider themselves connoisseurs) but I…[Read more]

    A big black turtle? I don’t have a problem with that if it works as a cover. I like turtles…

    Would you care to elaborate on the problems with the design? I’m here to try and find out more about this stuff, afteralll. I think my options are fairly limited. As far as I can tell, I am going to be stuck with some kind of tribal. Do you just think…[Read more]

    Thanks for your reply. There is nothing wrong with the tattoo itself – it was done very professionally. The problem is that I now have a holy symbol tattooed on my foot, and I don’t like thinking about the offence it could (and would) cause to those from a culture that I have a lot of respect for. That said, a bad cover where the om could still…[Read more]

    I was really worried when I first saw this pic that my foot was going to drop off or something, but it’s purple because we had already drawn one design and wiped it off.

    Given that a lot of people have viewed this and none have given me the answer, I’ll post a pic of the original now. Its an om symbol. Got it when I was young and had mistaken the…[Read more]

    Ha 🙂 Perhaps a bit extreme. But I guess its on the cards in a way that it wouldn’t be if the tat was on my face.

  • Mark19 replied to the topic Coverup in the forum Tattoo Ideas 8 years, 6 months ago

    Ha, thanks. I think I’ve fixed the picture now
