About this Class
Cover up tattoos are super complicated. They require an artist to visualise a design that will be able to overshadow the tattoo that needs to be covered.

The act of tattooing over a previous tattoo with a new and modified tattoo is called a tattoo cover-up. It is one of the two options of removing an unwanted tattoo; the other being laser removal. Most clients go for a cover-up tattoo because it is cheaper than tattoo removal.

A tattoo artist's biggest challenge is mastering the art of cover-up tattoos. It takes immense skill and creativity to come up with a design that's suitable for the cover-up as well as liked by the client.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to do a large cover-up tattoo from scratch.
