Look, this is for the rest of your life. Why compromise for the sake of a holiday that's going to be over in a week or two?

Is it a great tattoo? No. But it's not going to be the worst tattoo on the beach by any means.

Just persevere with the laser, give it a year or two and get a fantastic coverup from a great artist that you'll be proud of wearing for the next 60 years, not just bodge what you can do with what you've currently got for the sake of a holiday.

You can also buy specialist make-up to cover tattoos, never used it myself but I think one of the most popular brands is Dermablend, link attached. Could be a good temporary option for a holiday but again, I have no experience with it so don't know how good it is.

Thanks for your replies

I think I am just going to get it reworked rather than covered up

Just to say as well: if you are planning on getting a tattoo immediately before going on holiday (and by immediately I mean within 3-4 weeks of going away), and not giving it time to heal before you go, then either be prepared to keep it covered for the entire duration of your holiday anyway (plus no swimming, etc), or else get ready for the mother of all bad heals.

So you're not curious then?

Did you get the coverup? Did he try the makeup? Did he go with the UV sleeve? Did he ruin his holiday thinking about it or was he able to let it go an enjoy himself?

This was a pretty big deal for a while and we didn't get any closure.

He hasn't been active since 14 July 2018. Should we call the police?
