When You Need To Cover Up Your Masterpiece It Is A Matter of Choice

If you love your tattoos more than anything and enjoy wearing them proudly – you will soon realise that there are times when you will need to cover up your lovely tattoos. Perhaps you have been asked to be the maid of honour at a wedding but the bride and her parents are a little conventional and view tattoos as being inappropriate.On the other hand certain jobs and industries require a definite dress code and don’t permit tattoos and other types of body art in the workplace no matter how talented and gifted you are – so why pass up the chance to be your best friend’s right hand at her wedding or that excellent job opportunity just because you have a little ink on your body?

How do you think Angelina Jolie’s tattoos disappear when she has to appear in certain movie roles or if she would prefer only a select amount of ink showing when she walks the red carpet? The solution is simple, really – in this instance you need to think up something temporary and not permanent removal of those lovely pieces of art you thought about long and hard of doing. After all, getting a tattoo is a pretty permanent fixture and not something you do on a whim. Take heart as there is a perfectly good solution – one that Angelina uses.

Five cool ways to cover up your art without permanent removal:

  • Choose ColorTration which is a great way to cover up your tattoos. This is a liquid make-up that is really easy to apply and is comfortable to wear unlike thick stage make-up; furthermore it is simple to purchase this product online.
  • If you have body ink chances are you have heard of Dermablend, as this is one of the most commonly known ways to cover up your ink art and is absolutely perfect to disguise tattoos that range from small to large – all you need to do is to apply the cream directly over the tattoo which takes in the region of 2 to 3 minutes for it to set. Once the make-up is dry – a setting powder will need to be applied.
  • A creamy and waterproof stage make-up such as Ben Nye Tattoo Covers as well as Mehronare – these are some of the numerous products that you will be able to source and purchase online.

When you are ready to disguise your tattoo, cover make-up is the perfect solution. Find out more about tattoos, how they are created and what can be expected by contacting my studio today for more information.
