Tattoo Cover Up Ideas for Old or Unwanted Tattoos

Tattoo regret is common as we get older.  It is estimated that 50% of people that have tattoos, for one reason or another want to get rid of them.  There are many solutions for tattoo removal today—laser and creams  being the most common.  However, there are varying degrees of success with each.  Because of that, another solution is to consider tattoo cover up.

Tattoo cover ups are especially popular to change or cover over tattoos with the names of past loves.  Sometimes a tattoo that seemed so right at the time a few years later becomes something you just can’t live with.  Perhaps you have a tattoo that has faded and you feel no longer looks very good.  Well there are solutions for all of these situations in the form of what is called a tattoo cover up.

One solution to get rid of names and letters is to try and have the letters changed so they say something else.  We have heard that Johnny Depp, the popular character actor, had his tattoo that read “Winona Forever” changed so that it became “Wino Forever”.  You can really get creative with this.  So talk it over with your tattoo artist and they probably have some great ideas.

Another solution to cover up tattoos is to use a design as a cover that has a lot of intricate detail.  Tribal tattoos are often a good choice. Because of their detail and colors, they can often blend and cover old tattoos very well.  Ask your tattoo artist about placing a tribal tattoo over your old tattoo.  This solution can often yield very good success.  A good source for tribal designs and newer unique tattoo designs that would work well as tattoo cover ups can be found here.

Another solution would be to use a tattoo cover makeup.  This is obviously something that would not be permanent, but there are certain make up products that work well for this on a temporary basis.    If you chose this solution you want to make sure you use a concealer, neutralizer or cover specially designed for tattoos.  Here is a company that makes good makeup designed for concealing tattoos.

A final suggestion is to consider having that tattoo re-inked.  That would work of course if you still like the tattoo, but don’t like the way it has aged.  The old tattoo can be retraced and filled in with brighter more vibrant colors to improve its look.
