A cover-up is a way to get rid of the old tattoos by completely covering it with another pattern. The main difficulty of performing the work is the presence of certain colors and images, which creates some restrictions when choosing a future picture.
The new sketch should have the same size as the old tattoo or overlap it somewhat. Its location and theme should correspond to the proportions of the area or part of the body where the old drawing is located. There are also restrictions on the use of color – the new paint can not be lighter than the one that it overlaps.
In order for the cover-up to turn out to be of high quality, the master needs to work carefully with the detailed background of the old tattoo, choosing the size, plot, style, technique and other parameters of the new drawing. It should also be taken into account that some tattoos are almost impossible to fix, for example, blackwork, completely covering the entire area of the skin with black.
