The Best Technique to Cover Up Tattoos

Later in life, many people regret their tattoos for many different reasons.  While they may not want to completely get rid of their tattoos, some decide to get cover up tattoos.  This is something that is becoming extremely popular.

While people are in a relationship they sometimes make the decision to get their significant other’s name tattooed.  This may seem like a good idea, but if the relationship doesn’t last they are stuck with that person’s name on their body.  This is one of the most popular reasons people want to get a cover up tattoo.

Contrary to popular belief, getting a new tattoo directly on top of an old one is not the best way to cover it up.  Doing this allows too much ink to sit in that area of skin.  In some cases, you may still be able to see the old tattoo underneath the new one.

For the best results, anyone who wants to cover up their tattoo should go through laser tattoo removal treatments first.  For a good cover up, at least 5-8 sessions is recommended.  This will allow some of the ink to be removed from the skin and will cause the tattoo to fade, making it easier to cover up.  Visit our Before and After page to see how well laser tattoo removal works.
