barb wire armband cover-up by newtskewltattoo barb wire armband cover-up by newtskewltattoo
This is a cover up of a barb wire armband I'm in working on. I need to go back into the wings and bring the purple out a little more to make a better cover, and I'm also going to be adding veigns through the wings to take away from the line work showing through still...

Thats so cool... I have always had a facination with cover-ups. I love them. I love how someone can take an ugly tattoo and make it into something beautiful. If I ever get the chance to learn to tatoo, cover-ups is what I would specialise in.

it's deffinately a chore to figure out a good cover-up... it's pretty difficult to work with the lines that are layed down already. And people are impatient and just want a tattoo sometimes....which is why they need a cover-up in the first place. Good isn't cheap, and cheap isn't good...

I still plan to bring the purple a further down on the inner part of the wings and also add veigns to take away from any line work still showing through.

Covers it up pretty well :P Although I would have had the wings a dark purple to dark blue gradient so there wouldn't be any tattoo showin under it after it's healed, but whatever, the client may have wantedit that way :P Looks pretty cool all the same :D
