Cover-up the old stuff

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.

Weekend with anchors & watercolours

A busy weekend.

Started with this nice & minimal anchor.

This guy is a guitar player in several bands and also an guitar technician, just opened his shop as well: urvamusic.com
Has and G-clef & F-clef. I wanted this piece to be something different, not “just-another-lettering”, so I added some watercolour feel to it:

 

A piece with the pink sky. Going to add some more contrast to it after a while, will post a new photo when finished.

Primary colours, nice & minimal once again:
