Doing a good cover up is not easy. On many cover-ups you can still see a little hint of the old tattoo behind the new one. That is normal. Some cover-ups are over very dark or heavily scarred tattoos. There is nothing that can be done for the texture of the scarring in the old tattoo but the old tattoo design won’t be legible.A cover-up is an entirely different kind of tattoo than a tattoo on blank skin.

Meet Roman, an artist from Moscow, Russia who makes cover–ups which look better than simple tattoos.
