This free hand cover up is a perfect example of how it should be done. Very attractive with great line-work, bright and bold colours, delicate detail with a feminine touch. Done by Nina Radermeyer of Zen Ink Professional Tattoo Studio in Johannesburg South Africa.

Covering up a tattoo can often be tricky and not every artist is able to achieve the desired result. Often the cover up will look good for a very short time until it is completely healed, and then the old tattoo will start to show through again. So, do your research and be sure to listen to your artists advice and recommendations before deciding what it is you’d like to get.

A wide variety of colours were used in this piece that were well mixed together to create a smooth a beautiful design which compliments the rest of the detail in the tattoo. The jewel is the stand out part of the tattoo which is stunning.

Nina used a combination of Dynamic Tattoo Ink, Eternal Tattoo Ink, Fusion Tattoo Ink and a Professional Rotary Tattoo Pen to complete this tattoo.
