    My fox is a cover up, of course it's possible



    The leaves above it's head covers a 3-4 inch tall black tattoo I had done when I was 18. Some parts were about 10mm thick to give some perspective

    I need this gone. It was bad when I had it (this is the day it was done), but it's so faded and bled out now that it really needs covering. Only problem is, those swallows (also BAD, look at those lines) are pretty close underneath. I wanted an across shoulders dotwork piece but I have no idea if that text could even be covered.

    Would depend on the design, you'd have to have something busy/heavy over the letters themselves and it could get lighter around it. Work with an artist they will really help you with it.

    Here's mine <3

    Don't see why it couldn't be covered, just depends what you want it covered with I guess.

    ^ Call me dim but... never realised that was a cover up, or if I did I completely forgot. You can't even tell it's a cover up too!

    I actually had a really good idea for a solid black cover up last night. But thanks everyone! Super helpful!

    FINALLY got around to taking some photos!

    My phoenix





    And the one I had done for my dog when she died



    And THIS is what I've designed for my thigh, but I don't know what colours to go with yet.
    I based it off some art I found online but I've changed most of it to suit my tastes because it was a bit fine-boned and I like heavy-set Gypsy cob types. Gypsies are usually tobiano or splash coloured, but I'm worried that if I decide on a very white horse, that the colour won't last, and might actually look terrible?

    Love the horse!!! Maybe a mostly black piebald? There's a filly at a farm near here that just has a teeny bit of white on her rump, and of course her feathers!

    the phoenix is great too!

    Thanks I wasn't happy with the phoenix to start with but he's growing on me, just really needs touching up, and maybe a friend. Thinking blue and green same design flipped to face the other way on my other arm? Dunno. I want something that looks nice at a distance but when you get up close is different and a bit gory but still pretty for the top of my sleeve.

    I really love a blue roan or blagdon Gypsy with white socks, feathers, tail and baldy face, would that just look grey you think? I hate that white doesn't show up well, I'm not keen on an all black horse I feel like it might come out as a big blobby mess with no definition? I haven't seen many good ones, they all look a bit odd when you google "horse tattoos"
