Coverup Trivia Question #3


Coverup Trivia Question #3
Can't you just blast over the old piece with skin color a couple times to lighten it?
Well, yes and no. When you apply layers of ink across multiple sessions, you are mixing pigments in the skin, so adding a lot of white or off-white pigment can limit how black you can get your lines later on. It is possible to get a lasting lightening effect by using white, but it may be a little different from what you'd expect. There's way more on this subject in Coverup: The Next Level, now included FREE in your Reinventing The Tattoo subscription, building on last year's foundation, Coverup: A Fresh Look.
