If the links don't work just google Mope tattoo and you'll see the stuff I mean

 

Thanks

Does anyone know of a good tattoo artist who specialises in coverups please? I have a bad tribal design on my shoulder that needs some work doing on it.

 

Hope someone can point me in the right direction please

Feline comes highly recommended for coverup.

I have an appointment on the 17th for a coverup and can't wait - not at Feline - in another part of the country.

Thanks for the reply mate. I'm afraid it was an 'artist' at Feline that did my current tattoo that I want covering so I won't be going back there again. Thanks for the recommendation though. :)

Dave Fox at Van Schaiks Firth Park is brilliant at cover ups. He is a great guy and a real artist.

Thanks mate, that's very local so I'll pop down and have a look at his work. :)

I have a rough idea for a tattoo I want. Would it be normal to ask a tattoo artist to draw something up? I'm happy to pay for the time taken on the pre design work, I just want to be sure its right before I have it done. Its a mish-mash of styles so would need someone with a good artistic tendencies. It won't be huge.

 

I was thinking Van Schaicks in Hillsborough or Feline off eccy road. They both look professional but any thoughts would be good.

Chap Tats on Station Road Chapletown. Mick Wigfield, fantastic tattooist and artist. Highly recommended.

I have recommended Dave Fox at Van Schaiks Firth Park several times......he is a really good artist not just good at tattoos. Go and have a chat with him and I am sure he will be able to draw up whatever you want. He is a great guy and will be willing to put in the time and effort to get it exactly as you want it.

Can anyone recommend where I can get a Disney style tattoo? I'm looking at getting a tattoo of the rose from Beauty and the Beast or something similar from the film.

Coverup question:

 

I had a full day session about 3 weeks ago to get a coverup done.

I'm absolutely delighted with the design and the quality however, about a week ago, someone who was looking at it spotted it was a coverup. The old tattoo is showing through. I sent pictures tot he studio, but they said it looked fine and if I wanted the area blackened, I could have that done.

 

I don't want it blackened, but I want it to go away.

 

Do you think the studio would charge me more for getting more work done, or do you think that as I paid for a cover-up, it should be covered?

 

I don't want to ask the artist directly yet, because I don't want to fall out with him - I want more tattoos from him.

Do laser removals leave really bad scars ? I really want to get rid of one of mine (it is not very big) but am scared the scar will look worse than the tattoo itself !

 

It depends. There are different levels.according to the individual, size of tattoo etc. It can also take quite a lot of sessions to fully remove one. A friend of mine had it done and it didn't really work. I knoe you can buy make up that will cover tattoos
