Okay, first of all you might be wondering what on earth are these “blast over tattoos” we speak of. We really want to show you the rest so we're going to keep it short. Blast over tattoos aren't your typical cover up tattoos. They do cover up a layer of tattooed skin but not entirely. It's meant to tattoo over an existing, faded layer of tattoo but not necessarily cover the whole thing up. That's what makes it interesting, tattooing over tattoos.
Blast over tattoos prove that not all “cover up tattoos” are meant for shitty tattoos. Sometimes, we just happen to run out of space. And it doesn't mean we have to stop, either.
