cover-up tattoos by Tanya Magdalena

Some tattoo cover-ups….
Helping people move forward in their lives is one of the greatest rewards of my occupation.

semicolon_coverup_tattoo by Tanya Magdalena
I’m glad I was able to help my client move forward. Here’s an example/reason to avoid trends…this one was huge, dark, conspicuous, and no longer relevant. Mostly healed, needs one more layer in about 6 months. Cover-ups can be a lengthy, and expensive process, generally requiring more than one pass. Think before you ink.

name coverup tattoo by Tanya Magdalena
love might last a lifetime, but a tattoo lasts longer…covered-up an ex-husband’s name after the divorce of an 18 year marriage.
Lover’s name tattoos are the traditional “kiss of death” for any relationship, regardless how long the couple had been together. Just “don’t” do it.

buddha_rework_tattoo by Tanya Magdalena
A tattoo done my someone else long ago that didn’t meet the client’s original expectations. He wanted to keep it as close to the original as possible, but enhance it. I did what I could, without having any actual reference to the original image, to make the buddha happier. more defined and smooth-out some of the shading.
