Tattoo cover up?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a good tattoo cover up cream that doesn't look absolutely awful? I've seen Dermablend & Rio Camouflage, but not sure if either of them would be any good. Has anyone used any?

Ta.

for tattoo coverups, i find that dulux works, but if you're not bothered about the shade, sandtex is the business because it's rugged and hard wearing. that's important if you spend a lot of time, for example, standing on a harbour wall with your skin exposed, because the sea will just fuck your paintwork right up.

either way, use a brush, not a roller unless your body is flat and has a large surface area.

Why do you want to cover them up?

I've seen bridesmaids use cover up cream for tattoos before a wedding... don't have a clue what they used i'm afraid. It didn't work that well though, as the photographer had to use different angles and props to disguise them.

Well don't ask strangers for advice then be a total bitch.

i'm not entirely sure what point you were trying to prove there, as that didn't make much sense in context, but i guess it doesn't take much to be a total bitch around here. i didn't entirely mean to sound so harsh, though it was a little frustrating to have that as a response.

i'm going to be a bridesmaid and it seems as though it'll be imperative that i cover them up.

That's a shame, they're part of you and should be appreciated as such. I guess you can't argue (unless you don't value your life :D) with the Bride though.

Can't help with the cover-up ideas unfortunately. I can't imagine any of the things on the market being too successful though. :(

Those are nice :)

I must say that anyone telling me to cover mine for something like that would be told to take a running jump. :swearing:

That's a shame. Those tats are really pretty. The ones by your eyes could easily be concealed by your hair I'm sure. If your dress is floor length that'll hide the ones on your feet. It's the ones on your arms that I'm guessing you have to cover.

Sadly I cant recommend anythign from experience but this might be of some help:

It's suggesting DermaBlend and seems to be getting some good feedback :)

The look fairly discreet and tasteful to me, I don't see why you have to cover them up.

Yeah, that's what i thought. They're well done and look nice and not overly "in your face". Ah well, Bride's day n'all :down:

yip I'm with thats part of you and who you are, covering up may make it look like a bad make-up job no? Never seen one covered (well not that I know of)

Can she not get a dress that covers up the bits?

I can't see you pic's btw...it's a red box :(

EDIT** have managed to log on and see the pic's, nice tats....I'm keeping a musical theme with mine, but was wanting a love heart outline too....Dont' worry I won't copy tho!

Because some guy just tryed to offer you advice and you came back with a really ungrateful sarcastic comment.

Obviously the mods and two other members disagree with me for sticking up for a guy who was trying to help you out.

hm.:up:

fair point. turns out that stuff would be wholly unsuitable for the purpose suggested so i can only apologise. the neg rep was absolutely valid and i want to take this opportunity to apologise for any offense, hurt or distress i might have caused.

in future, i can only urge that people don't take any such advise literally without first checking for yourself whether something like that is safe.

yeah, i saw some reviews for dermablend, but it had some pros and fairly big cons - one being that some of the people reviewing it couldn't get a shade light enough. i have pretty pale skin which could be a problem - could always get a fake tan, ha. this is quite the pickle.

Tats oot for the lads.

The look fairly discreet and tasteful to me, I don't see why you have to cover them up.

i don't think it's those ones she's worried about, though i could be wrong. i'm getting a half-sleeve started in the next month, so i can kind of see her point. it's very lovely, tasteful and girly though.

ho ho ho.

My bad. I misread the original quote.

I hold my hands up and apologise.

shame you can't take back the negative rep you gave, eh ;)

What sort of thing are you getting done sleeve-wise?

If i was you i'd speak to the bride and try and see exactly what she has a problem with etc.
