minerva in Tattoo Ideas

Cover-up tattoos are tattoos used to cover a certain area of the skin that has a scar or an old tattoo which the bearer wishes to cover.

Unfortunately, people still get bad tattoos. Some get them removed through laser removal (which is expensive and damaging to the skin) while others choose to cover it up with a better tattoo. So if you, dear reader, have an old tattoo that you wanted to get rid of, we encourage you to take a look at these 16 amazing cover up tattoos to give you good ideas.

Remember, not all tattoos are good for cover-up. So you gotta find the right artist and discuss with him further on this matter. You wouldn't want a bad tattoo the second time around, would you? So let's all find inspiration from these 16 amazing cover up tattoos.
