Cover-up tattoo

Total: 1 hour for drawing and 3 hours tattooing
Cover-ups don’t need necessarily to be made only with Tribal. Obviously black is the strongest color to “hide” any other tones.
The request in this case was to work with this particular style.
My advice was to add some of shaded “blades” coming out and around the black design to give a contrast and of course, to distract a little bit of too much dark color in just one spot.
There’s no secret for a good cover up result. It all relies on space that can be used. Bigger, the better.
And I do my best on how much and how big can be spent on the tattoo.
The result was pleasant for both sides.
