COVER UP

OLD BECOMES NEW.

A tattoo is forever. That's what they say. However, this platitude does not really fit into today's time. At least today there are a lot of ways to deal with an unloved tattoo. Those who want to do without the painful, lengthy and costly procedure of lasering, will certainly find another way: Just as our style and the idea of ourselves can change over time, so do our tattoos.

COVER UP OR BLAST OVER?

Smartly covering an old tattoo with a black surface so that it disappears in the new motif works very well, especially with small motifs. Larger areas, however, already require somewhat more radical measures. Blackout Tattoo: The large-scale blacking out of skin areas or entire body parts are examples of relatively uncompromising and pure aesthetics in the field of cover up tattoos. Blast over, on the other hand,  abandon the claim to completely cover the old tattoo. They form much more a second layer. The color tattoo that has faded over time steps into the background and awakens to new life in combination with the more massive, black blast over.

WAYS TO SAVE YOUR TATTOO

There are many reasons for choosing a cover up or blast over tattoo. Each project is unique and there are some questions that need to be answered in advance: What part of the body is it about? How big, how old and how dark is the tattoo to be covered? How big should the new tattoo be?  What are the options and alternatives in terms of style?  To get the right answers, it makes sense in most cases to get detailed advice in beforehand. A personal meeting in advance from experience settles more than a hundred mails could do.
