Default Sorry a cover up question

I know people hate cover ups questions, but i really need some ideas. I had this done some years ago and really dont like it. Its on my right upper arm. I really want to cover it with either a pin up or a horror themed sleeve. The question i have is the black gonna be an issue? i.e will i need a large patch of black to cover up that design?

If you think a pin up or sleeve is out of the question im open to ides but really wanna get away from the tribal thing.

and nothing to manly I am a girl after all ^^

thank guys in advance

Pin ups are mostly skin tone, so not first choice for a cover up. That said, your tribal isn't that big, so you could maybe hide it in the hair of a pin up (will have to be face only, for that scale) or have some kind of old school rose/pin up combo.

Probably be very easy to hid in a horror sleeve too.

You could always have laser, to increase your options.

Take a look around and find the right tattooer for you. Then ask them how they would approach what you have.

Good luck!

I do loads of cover ups, I think if your wanting a horror piece that would be a gift for a tattooist covering it for you. IMO.

oooh - decisions decisions... horror or pinups - truly tricky one

what about a combo? like elvgrens naughty witches... or some zombie / bride of frankie pinups - could hide the tribal in her massive black beehive? coop-esque devil girls?... nice!

you must post pics when you decide!

Now that is a cool combo!

As its been said in the thread, nothing is impossible but as BB said laser might be an option worth thing about? The 1st thing though is as BB said find yourself a nice artist and go talk to her/him?
