Dia De Los Muertos Cover up by SpikeJones67 Dia De Los Muertos Cover up by SpikeJones67
This is a cool cover up I got to do today, too bad the pictures came out crappy.

Original art, do not steal, dickhead.

Yeah he had an old tattoo that I "covered" with a new tattoo. That's what we mean when we say "cover up."

Do you have to work with the existing colors, then, or do you go through a removal process first and cover up what's left?

Yeah, essentially you're hiding the old tattoo with the new one. It depends on how faded the old one is, but typically we cover the old one in dark and color shading in the new one.

Lovely work again Spike!

She has just the right amount of seductive, sultry allure in those eyes and lips. The green background really give a boost to those purple hair tones too!

In fact I'm loving the colours in the recent images you've been posting too!! Keep up the fabulous work! :D

Thanks Johnny! I've started putting more backgrounds on my tattoos (at least the bigger pieces), I find that just the right amount of contrasting color makes things pop. Haven't had a lot of time to do art lately, but some of the sketches I'm trying to find time to finish (like the zombie geisha for the shop tee shirts) should have some badass colors I think you'll like.
