Frequently Asked Questions

Cover-Up Tattoo Questions?

We’ve done our best to clarify everything below, but don’t hesitate to flick us a message if you need some more information!

Will the existing tattoo still be seen underneath the cover-up?

While our artists will always do their best to ensure the original tattoo is covered completely by choosing a suitable design to go over the top, sometimes the existing tattoo can still be seen underneath. Our artists will always advise if this may be the case, and suggest either laser removal or a different design to use for a cover-up if they believe the old tattoo will be visible. 

In some cases, the original tattoo will have scarring, while the tattoo is covered, the raised skin of the scar tissue can be visible through the new tattoo.

Is laser tattoo removal necessary for a cover-up tattoo?

Laser isn’t always required to get the job done, but without it you’ll be very limited as to what kinds of designs you can do.

CB Ink has one of Brisbane’s best in-house laser tattoo removal services for exactly this reason!

How big does the cover-up need to be?

As a general rule of thumb, we advise the new tattoo will need to be 3-5 times bigger than the existing tattoo. For the best results with a cover-up, if possible, the main part of the new design will be placed on fresh skin next to the existing tattoo and the existing tattoo will be hidden in the background shading.

Will any design work for a cover-up?

No, specific designs will need to be used for cover-ups. This will vary depending on the existing tattoo, however generally speaking the new design will need to be large, dark and bold to hide existing tattoos. Designs that incorporate fine line or lots of negative space (skin gaps) are generally not useable for a cover-up design.
