A plus point of a tattoo on the wrist is the numerous possibilities for a cover-up tattoo. As the name implies, this is a cover-up of an existing tattoo by unceremoniously attaching a new motif over it. An experienced tattoo artist is able to seamlessly integrate the existing motifs to create something completely new and compelling.
What is important in a cover-up tattoo on the wrist?
A cover-up tattoo is a tattoo over an existing tattoo. The goal here is that the already stung motif is no longer recognizable and a completely new motif takes its place. To achieve this, a tattoo studio works with dark colors and also relies on different structures and distinct contrasts.
An important aspect of a cover-up tattoo is its size.
If tattooed in the wrist area, the new tattoo is usually three times larger than the old motif. In other words, a very clear effect is created, which naturally requires a good pre-selection. On the wrist, covering existing tattoos with a cover-up tattoo is usually possible without any problems. However, it happens again and again that the forearm must also be included to get a coherent and convincing motif. Furthermore, the new motif should match the existing motif and fit your own style for as long as possible. This can be achieved mainly through good advice and a visit to a tattoo studio with sufficient experience and a lot of professional know-how. A cover-up tattoo must necessarily be professionally applied to convince all along the line and “organic” or natural effect.Which
Motifs are suitable for cover-up tattoos on the wrist?
Tattoos on the wrist are perfect for a cover-up tattoo, because here usually worked with fine lines and therefore enough space exists for a new motif. Over the years, certain motifs have emerged as particularly in demand and are rightly considered classics. Among them falls
- a compass
- floral motifs and patterns
- flowers or blossoms like rose, carnation, lily, oak leaf etc.
- Animals like dog, cat but also wolf and eagle etc.
Who decides for a cover-up tattoo, can also first be pretreated with a laser. The advantage is obvious, because so disappear or at least fade the existing structures and the new tattoo comes out even better. Accordingly, the motto is: first laser, then cover-up tattoo, if it should be really good and the old and new motifs are not 100 percent compatible right away.
