Hi, my name is Joshua South from Area 51 Tattoos and I'm here to talk to you about covering up a tattoo. The best way to cover up your tattoo is with make-up. Costume make-up is ideal for its consistency. However, a relatively small tattoo can be covered with basic cosmetic items. If a tattoo is scarred heavily, more layers of make-up will be required to cover the tattoo. You will need a cover concealer corrector stick, one in green and one in nude. Then, you will need a heavy matte liquid make-up. Try to blend the edge of the make-up gently into the surrounding skin to make sure the skin looks as uniform as possible.
