1. Nature Always Prevails
From red devil baby to awesome scorpion. This shows what a little imagination from a skillful tattoo artist can do. The next time you think about letting your next door neighbor practice his skills on your leg, think again.
2. Blast From The Past
Check out this gnarly T-rex tattoo. It's always good to know that once you grow out of that mermaid and stars phase you can upgrade to something a little more age appropriate. Like a...book readying dinosaur!?
3. Holy Hawk
Jesus did a lot of things...including turning into a hawk. This cover-up used creative shading and a real eye for space management to transform a not so good tattoo into something truly amazing.
4. Tribal Tattoos Use To Be Cool
Or at least this person seems to think so. Probably a cover up that a lot of people can relate to. A some what plain tribal tattoo is transformed into a beautiful work of art. Great example for those heavy toned cover up jobs.
5. Sorry George
From boyfriend to distant memory. Probably one of the more common cover up jobs. When things just don't work out the last thing you want is a constant reminder every time you look in the mirror. Flowers make everything better.
6. Evolving Gypsy Skull
It goes to show you what a little planning or lack there of can do to the creative process. This well thought out gypsy skull design gives the owner what he was probably looking for in the first place. Think before you ink.
7. Big Black Bird
Not all tattoos have to be covered up completely. This black bird transformation shows us that a little leftover ink can add detail and dimension to the new design.
8. And Then There Were Two
Dolphins are among the most popular tattoos with women. Especially when they're good. So if that spring break dolphin tattoo you got in college is in need of a facelift, look to this colorful adaption for inspiration.
