When you’re in a relationship, it probably feels like you guys are destined for each other, and will be together forever. But what do you do when love ends? Easy, you each just take your stuff and go your separate ways. There are some cases, however, where getting rid of a pesky ex isn’t so easy – when they’re etched onto your skin forever. And that’s precisely what coverups are for.
We have collected a list of clever ways people cover up tattoos that were dedicated to their exes, so continue scrolling to the tattoo gallery below.
Here is our list of funny covered tattoos
The best tattoos are those that can be hidden. A cover-up artist must consider the old body art, and whether it will blend in or stand out as something different from what’s going NEXT DOOR!
Some people might think tattoos are just for rebellious teens, but the right design can help you express yourself and be more creative. For example: if they have a favorite color that doesn’t fit into one category (like an orange cockatoo) or want something traditional yet unique like roses with leaves made out of rice paper-in both cases these would make great tattoo ideas!
It’s always more difficult to cover up a tattoo than it was before. But don’t worry, warm colors work really well for this!
Black and dark ink is what makes an old piece look newer – just make sure not to go too bright or else there will be some semblance of your former self visible through the new color scheme on top of its original form.
Well, the old tattoo was pretty small so you can imagine it took some effort to cover with this new design.
The new design and how much room there is above your old one will determine just how large of a cover-up tattoo you’ll need.
The artist may also suggest a few sessions of laser tattoo removal to lighten the old ink before attempting to cover it up with new artwork.
The necessity for laser tattoo removal usually depends on the age of the old tattoo, how dark its colors are, and what colors the cover up tattoos will consist of as well as the complexity of the cover-up design.
Now that the ink has had time to settle, you may be able to see some of your old tattoos peeking through. Just give it another few passes with the needle and they should disappear for good!
