its a good tattoo, personally not a fan of it being a cover up though since i can still clearly see the other tattoo under the new one :/

It's beautiful! The blue covered really well! Maybe another pass on the trunk to get rid of that little extra visible bit, and it'd be perfect...=3

try a washed down tribal black, even deep red [eternal is really great], and some darker browns would looks awesome in it too.:D good luck i know cover ups can be a punk to do, but that looks amazing so far

That new tattoo is fantastic, my favourite part is actually how it looks like the little tendrils of hair falling onto your neck kind of blend in with the branches. :D

Tattoo looks amazing but the cover up itself didn't really work all that well..

well if you saw her walking down the street with her shirt off, not knowing there was something covered, the first thing you'd notice would be the larger more detailed colored image. and judging by the blindness of most ppl, 80% roughly, would never know there was something underneath. only on closer inspection is it noticeable by 20% of the population. i told her this before we started working on her coverup because i wasn't going to tattoo a huge black tree on a huge black tree to "accomplish" the cover up "successfully" but thanks for the incite.

This is a very good point, and I wasn't trying to criticize, I just believe in if you are going to do something right do it all the way. And honestly, to me the first thing that stood out wasn't the tree but the birds, they weren't blended in quite as well, at least I assume they were supposed to be since one is in the middle of a branch. But really I guess it comes down to if the owner of the tattoo is happy then there is nothing to complain about.

i still have one more session on the tree to blacken areas up more. my goal wasnt to cover the birds with this tattoo, only the tree. I am going to be doing an addition onto the tattoo to actually cover them up fully. but thanks i knew that ppl probably wouldn't realize this when posted it, and i didnt want to type a whole monologue about what i did.

Yeah it's really hard to cover up a black tattoo. She might wanna let it heal and then go back for some more colors and shading to try but I think that might be as good as she can get.

:iconshadowx90:
shadowx90 Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012
Yea, I agree, they could have tried some fading or removal procedures first though. I mean when you notice it kinda ruins the composition and I know that she spent a lot of time and money on the cover up so for her sake it's a shame.

just depends on the artist and their skills as well as the customer's resources. Over all a black tattoo is gonna be a pain no matter what is done.
