Touch-up vs. Reworking/covering-up a Tattoo

Friday April 09, 2021



   Do you know the difference between a touch-up and reworking a tattoo? A touch-up is essentially tattooing over your existing tattoo by adding small details or adding a bit of color to the existing tattoo, and perfecting the lines. Touch-up is typically a quick procedure that doesn't require too much time in the chair. Touch ups are routinely used as a way to correct new tattoos if they’ve healed a little poorly, but they can also give new life to an old tattoo. Over the years, your tattoo will gradually fade. A touch up can make an old tattoo look fresh by making the colors pop and the details stand out like they used to.

     Not every tattoo can be touched up so that may lead to the need of completely reworking or covering up the tattoo in order to bring new life to it. Artists will typically have different styles or ideas and this can result in tattoos looking different after being reworked. If the artist feels the tattoo can not be properly fixed, they may suggest a cover-up. A tattoo cover-up is the act of tattooing over a previously unwanted tattoo with a new tattoo. You want to make sure that you choose a design that will go well with the tattoo you are wanting to cover-up as well as using the same color scheme or going black/gray for a better cover-up. 







Our Process Of Getting Your Tattoo Booked

Tuesday April 06, 2021

Do you have a tattoo design in mind but don't know where to start? We are here to help guide you through the process of how our shop operates. First thing you want to do is gather all the important information regarding your tattoo. You'll want to include: what tattoo you want, what size (in inches or comparison to an object), placement (part of body), color or black ink, and what art style (traditional, realism, illustrative, etc). After we receive all of this information, we match you up with an artist that specializes in that type of art style and obtain a quote on how long it will take to finish the tattoo. Once the quote is obtained we present it to the client and go into details regarding the total cost of the tattoo, how much money needs to be put down to secure the spot as well as the availability of the artist. Once the client agrees to terms and conditions they feel out the Lucky Bamboo Tattoo's Artist Design Fee terms of Services which goes over the important information regarding rescheduling policy and circumstances of where the client would voluntarily forfeit the fee if they don't meet the criteria of the agreement. After that, we take the Artist Design Fee and schedule the clients for the alloted time that the artist quoted. The final step is to make our client's tattoo dreams come true by designing one of a kind tattoo that they will proudle wear for the rest of their lives.
