  • Can you cover up an existing tattoo?

Our artists can usually cover up or fix most tattoos, even really bad ones, so you would never even know they were there. We are always honest, though. If we don’t think it can be successfully covered, we will let you know during the consultation and discuss your options to ensure you will ultimately be happy. Usually,there are additional charge for tattoo/scar cover up.
