It really depends on the tattoo you are trying to cover. This one was fairly easy since it was small and faded and the client agreed to go big. The bigger the new piece is, the simpler it will be to cover up. This is definitely one of those go big or go home sorta situations. Careful shading and bright colors and busy details to draw the eye away make for great covers.
Well the one I was thinking of covering is really small like maybe a bit bigger than a tonnie and it's on my thigh so I'd be down to go big. But it's kinda weird cause I'd feel bad for covering it QQ And it's kinda tricky cause I like the tattoo but it's just the lines are so wonky and it would look weird. Do you think if I link the pic you could give me your opinion?
[link] K there's the link x) I want to have a starry sky themed leg piece so I'd like to keep it a moon but I was also thinking of adding a swirly star background around the edges to fix the lines and add a little bit to it.
I think that's doable. The original isn't -that- bad, trust me, i have seen much worse that fixed up nice. Find the right artist, explain your idea, and I'm sure he/she would have no problem fixing you up. I know I could have fun with that.
