Cover-up tattoos are a great solution for dealing with unwanted tattoos. A lot of patients that want to get a new tattoo while removing an old one look to cover-up tattoos. A cover-up tattoo helps conceal an old, unwanted tattoo with a new design. Cover-ups can hide an existing tattoo by incorporating different elements to the original or by placing an entirely new piece of art on top. A great option for patients looking to get a cover-up is to first fade it down with laser tattoo removal.
Now, you may be thinking, “Why can’t I just cover up the tattoo without fading it down?” While this may seem like the easier route, it can end up hurting you in the long run. Many tattoo artists have difficulty creating a new piece of artwork on top of a tattoo due to the existing ink in the skin, especially when the existing tattoo contains a lot of dark colored inks, like black. To successfully hide an existing tattoo, tattoo artists must use twice the ink.
Fading a tattoo down can give your tattoo artist more freedom and flexibility with their design. The process is also much easier on your skin because the artist is not having to use as much ink and time to make sure the original artwork is covered up. It only takes a few treatments to lighten a tattoo for a cover-up.
