We all make mistakes; sometimes we didn't do enough research, sometimes the artist wasn't up to par, sometimes we fall out of love. Whatever the reason, your old tattoo may need some help. Lisa loves doing coverups, they're some of the most rewarding work tattooers do. It takes an eye for what's possible and the skill to make it look good. Don't make a mistake twice, this time do it right with an artist that can confidently help you.
Covered Multiple tattoos
Several tattoos around the arm were covered, and the roses were reworked from scratcher lines.
Black tribal waves
Barcode, name, 666
First session lines and shading, second session color
Covering a Coverup
The wizard was already a coverup, so this took some work. First session lines, second session shading, third session details.
The client saw his mistake before they finished the last word. One session covered (coverup took less time than the scratcher who did the original letters.)
Photo taken after session one.
Freehanded the drawing on to the client's specifications. One session to draw and line, one for color.
Client accidentally got a discount tattoo with hidden affiliations so we lost the XIII without touching the elephant (elephant and XIII not by me)
Covering a Coverup
The tattoo on the left was a coverup too, and almost went onto one of those bad tattoo shows but wanted more control over the finished half-sleeve. One session lines, three more to finish.
Client had the original tattoo re-blackened multiple times before changing her mind. We blasted white into it a couple times when she came in for other work before doing a full blastover with a work by MC Escher.
I was a gamer before I was a tattooer, so this client had to tell me that it doesn't stand for "For The Win"! Cleaned up some bad lines and added pinstripes so he can Fuck the World in style.
This client had a bunch of old tattoos that needed some love, so we took an afternoon and brought them to life!
