Covering up an old or unwanted tattoo can be tricky. Depending on the size of the tattoo, as well as the colors involved, the process is one which needs to examined by a professional. It also depends on what you want to do. Do you want to go from a color tattoo to a black and grey piece? Or do you want to cover up an intricate design? All these factors determine the ease (and the price of a cover up), and you also want to make sure the artist has experience doing cover ups. If they say they can do it, but don’t have any samples to show you then it’s up to you to take the gamble.


Las Vegas tattoo artist, Andy Pho, happens to be a cover up specialist and he’s been doing so for years. Here’s a few examples of his work and remember…it’s a tedious process which needs to treated as such. Sometimes they may even suggest using laser tattoo removal to lighten the colors, so it’s in your best interest to seek professional consultation.
