Next cover-up project begun.
Will cover this abstract red tree (the red lines) with a bunch of cute cartoon creatures, so in the end it will be a colorful halfsleeve. A lot more work going in this one, besides all the other characters there’s got to be some more layers of ink on top of the old tat as well, to cover it up nicely.
I really love to do cover-up’s. It’s always a good challenge, to work the old tat into new one, making an illusion. With the dotwork & geometry tattoos it’s even a more of a challenge, cause those designs have a lot more air in them. Although, lately I like more and more the cover-up’s where the new tattoo is just a second layer, so the old & new kinda mix together.
Anyway, did one cover-up again today, it had all my favourite techniques in it – dotwork, geometry and watercolours.
