It can be very disappointing to see a tattoo fading over time and not looking its best. It can also be upsetting to see a tattoo that you got many years ago that you have outgrown. No matter what your reason for getting a cover up tattoo, we can help you rework the old tattoo into something amazing.
What Is a Cover up Tattoo?
A cover up tattoo is a procedure that replaces an unwanted and previous tattoo with a brand-new one. The tattoo artist can help you pick out a new design if you don’t already have one in mind. If you already have an idea of what you’d like, feel free to discuss it with us. As long as we can work it over the old tattoo that is currently in place, we will be able to create a masterpiece for you.
When you receive the initial tattoo, the ink is set 1 millimetre below the skin surface. When you get a tattoo as a cover-up, the ink is once again placed a millimetre below the surface. When the two colours meet, they combine and a new colour is created. In most cases the darker ink will be the dominant one, so you can expect your tattoo to consist of dark colours in most cases.
When you present the tattoo that you want covered, our tattoo studio will decide how to best incorporate the new design over the old one and which colours would look best. The tattoo artist will have to formulate a specific strategy that is personalized based on your old tattoo. In some scenarios the areas that aren’t attractive in an old tattoo will be covered with interesting patterns that highlight a new design.
A tattoo artist may also recommend getting a larger cover up tattoo and may suggest that it be at least 30% bigger than the older tattoo. This is often the best way to camouflage the old tattoo to get the best results.

The Motivation behind Getting a Tattoo
Getting a tattoo allows a person to modify their own body, since ancient times. In fact, many indigenous people consider it to be a custom that is done on women, men and even children. A tattoo could represent a form of power, spirituality and in some cases gender.
In today’s society getting a tattoo can be considered to be a form of personal self-expression. Every tattoo has its own meaning and its own individuality. It’s something that a person has chosen from his heart to display on his body for one reason or another. Usually, the tattoo has a much deeper meaning associated with it than what is merely on the surface. This is why it is so important to work with an experienced tattoo artist that really gets what you are trying to say other than just what you want to be displayed.
In some cases, the motivation for a tattoo can come from something a person feels very close to, something a person believes in or something that he may idolize. When you consider all of the different things that can be tattooed onto the body, the person must have a special connection with the thing he has chosen as his own personal tattoo. You can bet that there is a story behind every tattoo you see.
A tattoo can also be placed in memory of someone special. Some people say that getting a tattoo ofsomeone they love that has passed away makes them feel that this person remains with them in spirit.
A tattoo can also be used as a way to showcase the body and make it look more attractive. This can be especially true for people such as gym trainers and athletes. A person that has built up his forearms and biceps will find that that tattoo he chooses will automatically be highlighted by the larger muscles.
Everyone has their own motivation for getting a tattoo but the thing that rings true for everyone is the chance to show some form of individuality to others in the form of art work using their skin as the canvas.
