Not every tattoo represents an eternal thought. Tattoo regrets happen for many different reasons, whether it happens to be a long time after getting it done or immediately afterwards. Often mistakes made like the name of an ex, a provocative image inappropriate for the workplace, or just a tattoo you outgrew are all reasons to cover up and hide your old ink. Thankfully, that's where an incredibly skilled tattoo artist like Veer Hegde - voted one of theBest Tattoo Artists in Bangalore and India can help with a breath-taking cover-up to transform the tattoo we no longer like into something we love, with no sign of the original tattoo remaining anywhere on our bodies. Just like magic!

While it's an option to go the laser route and have the tattoo removed permanently, it's also possible to find the right artist willing to work with anyone experiencing tattoo regret to make your old tattoo into a brand new art masterpiece. It's incredible to see the transformations without any trace of the old design.

When looking to get a new cover-up tattoo, one must understand that a cover-up truly works when the new ink is much darker than what is currently within your skin.

A tiny tattoo of an old lovers name can easily be camouflaged, by a rose or lotus blossom with shadows, Although the large and dark pieces are much harder to cover cleanly by flowers.

Blending the unwanted ink into the background of a larger illustration works rather well on dark-themed tattoos. What was once an uncomfortable memory becomes the backdrop to a new half or full-sleeve masterpiece.

The use of fully packed tattoos is especially effective at hiding old ink, allowing the tattoo artist to go darker without compromising the overall beauty of the piece. Although sometimes multiple sessions may be required to completely mask the old tattoo like a quote or blacked-out birds.The best course in certain situations is to just directly blackout the old tattoo and use the negative space to create a new piece.

We've rounded up a few tattoo cover-ups done at Eternal Expression that are so much better than the original art. There are so many reasons to get a cover-up, and it's good to know that the result can look as mesmerizing as the tattoos in our gallery photos do.

Of course, it's still important to carefully contemplate any new tattoo before making it a permanent part of yourself, but when those moments of regret strike, you know there's always a way to turn it into something even more beautiful.

Cover-up Tattoo styles

Blackout Tattoo



 A blackout tattoo is when a large section of the body (typically arms or legs) are inked with a solid, opaque covering of black ink. Basically, these tattoos are created by filling in a large area on the body with nothing but black ink, like coloring in a whole coloring page black. Blackout tattoos are sometimes used to cover-up older ink, but they’ve also seen rising popularity as first-pass tattoos.

Creative Reinvention

Creative Reinvention


 Reinventing an old tattoo rather than just covering is done by adding elements or incorporating them into a new design. Instead of hiding the existing tattoo design completely, it is rather creatively modified to become something else. Reinvention certainly won’t work for everyone, but it does make for some powerful inspiration!

Blast Over

Blast Over


 Blast over tattoos usually involves bold black lines and illustrative patterns. It is especially enchanting and eye-catching if you have light or faded colours in your previous old tattoo. It can sometimes look like stained glass or a tattoo with depth!

Can still see old tattoo under cover up?
Ambigrams can have hidden meanings. A meaning to show the world and only the ones close to you. Can see or understand the hidden meaning to interpret it!
