PLEASE SEND A CLEAR PHOTO OF YOUR OLD TATTOO FRONT ON AND WITH GOOD LIGHTING PRIOR TO BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT SO WE CAN DETERMINE WHICH TREATMENT WILL BE BEST FOR YOU!
Note: Your old tattoo must be quite faded in order to achieve good results with a cover-up. Going over an old tattoo that is very saturated or has an extremely bad shape will give you disappointing results, so it is best to do Removal on the old tattoo first, before getting a new tattoo done.
If we are covering up an old tattoo previously done by another artist, please come with realistic expectations of what is possible to achieve. If the former tattoo is extremely uneven, dramatic in shape, or very dark, we may not be able to achieve your exact desired shape, symmetry, or color.
For Microblading: Any hairstrokes done within the old tattoo may blend in and will not be as crisp, giving an appearance of unevenness in color and the old tattoo will still show through the new hairstrokes. Therefore, specifications on an exact color after healed is not guaranteed. If there is a build up of scar tissue, the strokes may not hold as well in those areas. If you want to correct the color of your old tattoo (that has faded to red/orange/blue/gray) so it doesn’t end up showing between the hairstrokes, color correcting can be an option by shading in the area with a color correcting pigment. Hairstrokes will still not be as crisp with color correcting. Please keep in mind that the pigments we use are semi permanent and do fade over time which means that the color of your old tattoo will still be there as our pigment fades. You will need touch-ups regularly to maintain a neutralized color. Powder brows may be a better option for your cover up and we can decide at your appointment what will work best for you.
All options will be discussed during the consultation, and tattooing will not start until the final design is agreed upon.
