Cover Up Tattoos

If you want to cover up an existing tattoo we can create a unique design to feature over whatever tattoo you had before.

If you would like to get a cover up tattoo please come into our studio. Cover up work needs a lot of special attention and consideration - and we need to see the existing tattoo in person. We can then advise you from there.

FAQ

+ WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AS A FIRST TIMER?

When you arrive for your tattoo I will prepare the skin, which involves shaving and sterilising it before applying the stencil. Then I will set out the work station. Each client gets new ink and needles and all the machines / bottles etc. are bagged up to prevent any cross contamination.

You will then be sat in a position that is comfortable for you, and allows me easy access to carry out the tattoo. Most tattoos take less than an hour to do, however if you are looking to get a tattoo needing multiple sessions you can choose the length of time you want to sit for. Most clients opt for two hour sessions.

Everyone gets a little nervous prior to their first tattoo, its completely natural to fear the unknown. Don't worry about this, nobody is going to laugh at you. I will do my best to put you at ease. The pain is nowhere near as bad as you imagine it to be; if they hurt that much I wouldn't be covered in them. Most people would say the pain is about 3 or 4 out of 10.

On the day of the tattoo, it will benefit you if you have a good breakfast. Drink some fizzy pop and eat a banana or two to get the blood sugar levels topped up! This will reduce the risk of feeling faint.

All in all, it is nothing to get worked up about. Enjoy the experience as much as possible, and when you walk out the door with your new ink you will already be thinking about the next one!

+ HOW MUCH DO TATTOOS COST?

The price depends on the design and size - we offer competitive tattoo prices and can provide a price on any given design or cover up tattoo. Please Contact Us for a tattoo price or advice.

+ WHAT TATTOO AFTERCARE GUIDANCE DO YOU GIVE?

Remove the cling film after two hours and wash the tattoo under cool, running water. With a clean hand, gently rinse the skin to ensure there are no traces of blood.

Pat dry with a paper towel and apply a small amount of Bepanthen (supermarket baby care aisle).

Repeat 3-4 times a day for one week.

DO

Shower instead of bath for 2-3 weeks as this is more hygienic for the tattoo as it heals.

Use Vaseline or baby oil after the first week to help keep the tattooed skin moist.

If you think your individual working conditions may cause the tattoo to get infected, cover the tattoo with a breathable gauze pad.

Wear loose, cotton clothing to prevent friction on the tattoo.

DON'T

Use sunbeds for at least 4 weeks after having a tattoo. This dries your skin resulting in a faded tattoo and UV rays can damage the skin around the healing tattoo.

Swim, use saunas or Jacuzzis for 3-4 weeks after having a tattoo as germs and bacteria can infect the tattoo.

Use scented moisturisers or creams like Prep-H etc, many actually draw the ink out of the skin as opposed to protecting it which will result in a faded tattoo.

Scratch your tattoo as it heals as you will pull the ink out and could cause infection.
