As you might’ve already known, tattoo ink is permanent – it’s for life. But sometimes, even a couple of years can turn you into a completely different person that won’t be comfortable with the tats that you were in love with a while ago. Body ink is supposed to represent something important to us, but that thing (or person, maybe) may cease to be significant to us after a short period of time.
And what about cheesy or cheap tattoos that you were not particularly fond of even the day you “put ’em on?” It’s quite easy to ruin a tattoo: the artist could be a sloppy pro, poor ink could spoil it; then you’ve got dangerous/shitty tools (guitar strings, anyone?), plus, an allergic reaction could wreck it. So, something that should’ve been your pride and joy can just as easily turn into your center of humiliation.
Thankfully, all hope is not lost, and a skilled professional can turn a disaster into a piece of art. The next list includes 11 amazing examples of cover-up tattoos that are not only fine as hell but will also make you wonder: Where the hell did the original ink go?
