Tattoo removal can be a long process. Sometimes there are life events that require you to hide or conceal your tattoo, such as a job interview or fancy party. There are many creative ways to hide your tattoo whether you are going through laser tattoo removal or just want to conceal it temporarily. These are a few methods that we like the best.
This one is pretty obvious but very effective. Clothes can hide most tattoos on the body. Long sleeves, long pants, turtlenecks, scarves or legwarmers are all great options for hiding tattoos, especially during Milwaukee winters. This option isn’t so great once summer rolls around and it is too hot to wear layers.
Makeup can do a really great job of covering up tattoos. There are many different kinds of makeup specifically made for tattoo coverage that stay on all day and won’t rub off on your clothes. You can go to a makeup store to have the makeup specifically matched to your skin tone. There are plenty of tutorials online showing how exactly to cover a tattoo using makeup. Makeup can be great for covering tattoos on occasion but unfortunately is not a permanent solution.
Bandages are another obvious but effective short-term solution that work well depending on the location and size of the tattoo. If you have a smaller tattoo on your wrist, for example, a bandage would probably do the trick. This method probably won’t work as well for large tattoos, face or neck tattoos. Like makeup, bandages are great on occasion, but won’t work well for a long-term solution.
Jewelry can work for smaller tattoos on the ears, fingers or wrists. Large earrings, a ring or a cuff style bracelet could cover a small tattoo. Experiment with different styles of jewelry to find the best cover-up option for you.
