Fish are synonymous with tattoos. The koi is the most famous. Talking about koi, if you ever watched Pokemon back in the day there was a character on there called MagiKarp (Karp being the other name for a koi…).MagiKarp evolved into this bad-ass dragon thingy that was a force to be reckoned with. It’ actually followed Japanese folk lore. Pretty cool… Anywho, Dolphins are some smart ass creatures. Throughout time they have helped humans many times from meeting a watery grave. I’ve never drawn a dolphin, but when this cover-up came up, I couldn’t let it go by. The thing being covered is a rose. It wasn’t a bad rose by no means, but she felt it was time to get rid of it and move on. She told me how she went to a few shops and they were pretty much telling her no, they won’t do it and basically, they don’t have the skill to do it. Tsk, Tsk, Tsk. Skill-less bastards.

This was created with a 7 textured tight liner, 15 curved magnum, and intenze, eternal and starbrite inks.

Tip:  A successful coverup will not only cover, but redirect a viewers attention away from the original place of the tattoo so it’s no longer a focal point
