Cover ups are all different. We will gladly meet with you for the purpose of trying to figure out how to cover your tattoo with a new design. If its not within our skillset to make the correct changes for a successful cover up or we can’t come to an accord on how it needs to be done, then the work will be turned down. cover ups are some of the most complicated type of tattoos.
Expectations should be realistic. The fact is that sometimes even though the coverup was done successfully, the old tattoo contrast may still show through the new tattoo. We are honest and will always make our best efforts to communicate well with our clients.

Remember that communication is key and will make all the difference in the outcome of the design.
