Do you have a picture of how it looks now, as that pic was taken as soon as it was finished? Would give more of an idea how easily it could be covered.

When you put a better pic up I'm sure you'll get some accurate opinions...there are some excellent cover up artists on this forum.

the reason i want to get in covered up is because im unappy with the design and quality of the work. Actually even if the quality was ok i still dont think i would like it, which is my fault. I thought the tattoo looked good on paper but didnt turn out the way i had imagined. I have wanted a tattoo for a long time and now ive got one i am dissapointed. I want to be able to look at my tattoo and be proud of it not embarrassed. At the moment, if im honest i think it looks a mess. Im annoyed with myself because i should of taken more time to do research into where i should get it done and to make sure i new what i wanted before i went in to get it. I feel like i just got one for the sake of having a tattoo and now ive paid the price and ended up with something im unhappy with. Hopefully if my tattoo can be covered im gonna get something that can be admired and shows of the artists skill. I want to have a lil input into the design so the tattoo means something. I think before i just saw getting a tattoo as something to do, whereas now i have an appreciation for it as an artform.

Glad i got that of my chest

Well, at least it only took you one tattoo to some to that conclusion. It took some of us a lot longer!

Good luck with it. Japanese is one of the best options for cover ups, so that's a great start.

Why not start researching tattooers that work in that style and when you have picked someone, approach them directly about your cover up?

It's come up a lot, so use the search function, here's one to get you started, has links and suggestions for lots of the more interesting UK based Japanese style tattooers:
