Do you have a preferred tattoo shop/parlour that you trust? They may be able to suggest some good products that will cover the tattoos but also avoid any rubbing off.

I use L’oreal True Match to cover my black treble clef on my foot. I use the neutral base in my skin tone.

First I use heavy powder, then cover it with a layer of foundation. Then I powder it once again.

I reapply as necessary until covered.

Also, thick stage makeup DOES work. I suggest Milano brand (often found at beauty supply stores that specialize in African American hair, but available in every skin tone).

You could always wear a shrug or shawl if you cannot cover it up.

Hope I helped!

My friend is a make-up artist and she uses CoverBlend by Exuviance and she said it can cover tatoos. I know Ulta sells it. That’s where I got it from (I use it as concealer I’ve never seen anything like it.)

I would go to a store with good cosmetics and get a color match for dermablend, it can cover anything.  You also want the setting powder.  If the color is perfect, it will match your skin and will not sweat off or rub off.

I have a pretty big and dark tat on my shoulder that my mom for her reasons has requested me covering.  Dermablend didn’t work too well for me, but it worked better than the estee lauder max coverage.  I was given a recommendation to go to MAC.  I was told that its a process and is not something that is done quickly.  Tattoo Camo is also a good product if you can find the right shade.

I went to Nordstrom’s makeup counter this last weekend asking them for advice on this very same thing. They said to use Cover FX or Dermablend which is like stage makeup.

They put Cover FX on me and matched the color really well to my skin tone. Unfortunately they couldn’t get the setting powder color right. One shade was too light, the next too dark. I’d have to do a little experimenting to get it right.

I also went to Sephora and they recommended Kat Von D’s tattoo covering makeup but it didn’t seem to come in that many colors and the shades weren’t right for me.

But I’d visit your local mall’s makeup counters and ask them for help and have them test the makeup out on you before you buy. I’ve heard good things about Dermablend but like others have said, if you can’t get the perfect shade then it won’t look that great.
