cover up: a tattoo

hi everyone!
today i have another tattoo design to share with you. this one is a cover-up. this is my second cover-up design that i have done. cover-ups can be a bit tricky depending on the design and what the client wants. my client had a cross on her back shoulder that she wanted to get covered.
she was so awesome and super chill. she was really open to anything but really wanted flowers as long it covered her cross. since her tattoo was about 2 inches, i had to make sure whatever i designed was about that big.

she had a few constraints. she is a teacher so it couldn't spill over her shoulder onto her collar bone nor could it really go over her shoulder onto her arm so instead she wanted it to go further down her back. i had so much fun coming up with the flowers and then arranging them for her. and i think it turned out super awesome. i can't wait for her to get it done and to show you all. yay tattoo's!

>>> don't forget august 1st my pricing will be going up so snag up a slot now at the current price!<<<

  1. It looks beautiful CB! I guess a cover up tattoo comes with its own challenges as well!

    1. oh yes and she has to make sure the tattoo artist knows how to do cover ups because they can be tricky. she may need to go in a few times to get the black completely covered
