I have a tattoo that I got many years ago. Needless to say, it have faded really bad and frankly it looks like shit. I am also having dress regret, and have now decided that I would rather deal with the tattoo being visible instead of trying to hide it.
I am thinking of getting it covered with another tattoo. Have any of you had a tattoo covered with another tattoo? Mine is on my chest, so it will be visible on my wedding day. My concern is making it look worse than it currently looks.
I have not had any tattoo’s done in over 20 years. And I am not familiar with what is available today. I really don’t want to get into something that is huge and worse than what I currently have.
If you have any pics please share. I don’t know what to do.

Have you tried any of the coverups? I’ve heard a few work very well.
My husband had a tattoo covered with another one. A skilled artist should be able to give you something you like and totally hide the one you don’t. It doesn’t have to be bigger, it can be the same size.

if you’re interested in covering it up, then it being faded is a great thing. There are tons of wonderful artists who can do coverups today, and I think you’d be surprised at your range of options of things to do. How big it needs to be all depends on what your current tattoo size is, and what you’re wanting to change it to.
I would rather show off my beautiful tattoo in whatever wedding dress I wanted, than try to hide my old tattoo simply because I don’t like it with a dress that Im not in love with. I would start by trying to find local (or a reasonable drive away) artists online, look at their pictures/portfolio and find someone with a style that resonates with you.

A temporary fix would be to get tattoo concealer for the day of the wedding. That way you are not rushing to cover up you old tattoo in time. My last tattoo I got ( I have 7) the tattoo artist was telling me all about special makeup you can buy to cover up your tattoos for the big day. Just an option.
