Most people with tattoos are proud to showcase their body art whenever they get the chance. On the other hand, there are times when some might feel more comfortable hiding their ink from view.

Whether it’s a wedding, a job interview or a family reunion with a judgmental grandma, there are some rare occasions when it might not be ideal to flaunt a tattoo.

I’ve covered many a tattoo in my career, with brides-to-be being my most common clientele with this request. And while I highly recommend making an appointment with a professional the first time around (they can start you off with the right color palette, brushes and sponges,), anyone can temporarily cover their own ink with the right know-how and practice.

  1. The first step, is to prep the tattooed area with an alcohol wipe. This cleans the skin and removes any excess oil from the pores.
  2. Next, cover the area with a small amount of primer. Oil-free primer helps the color ‘grab’ better. 
  3. Once the foundation primer is dry, it’s time to start concealing the tattoo. Neutralizing a black outline is the trickiest part, because the black ink often turns blue. We advise sponging on a full-coverage concealer in a stippling (or dabbing) motion. Tattoo Camo makes a very good one. 
  4. The next step is concealing the first layer of concealer, so purchase one that matches your skin color. Sometimes having one lighter and one darker works even better, as they can blend for a more natural look.  
  5. Using a flat synthetic brush about 1/2-inch wide, pat a layer of skin-tone concealer on top of the full-coverage concealer. You’ll have to play with the colors to get the best shade and coverage.
  6. To set the makeup, apply an invisible loose powder with a Makeup brush, and remember to dab when applying. Do not brush back and forth.

It takes skill, but with the right products, tools and practice, it can be mastered. This method also works well for bruises and skin discolorations,”  And, depending on how long your cover-up needs to last, you can also use a setting spray to keep color from rubbing off on your clothes.

Once you've applied the complete cover-up, you must remember that you might not get the results you were hoping for on the first try; however, if you can’t afford a trip to a professional, don’t get discouraged. It does take time, so just experiment at home until you find the right colour match and blending method that work best for you. Then, attend that wedding, job interview or family reunion with confidence.

On clean dry skin, apply Tattoo Camo Concealer paste to your tattoo (multiple layers may be needed). 

Gently cover with Tattoo Camo Setting Powder and shake off any excess.

Spray Tattoo Camo Magic Shield evenly on area about 25 cm to 30 cm from skin, creating a breathable, water and smudge resistant barrier

Simply use the oil free Tattoo Camo Remover Tonic on a cotton pad to wipe off

Helpful Hints
• Depending on the colours of your tattoo artwork, building up several layers of the concealer could be necessary to cover up the tattoo
• Smooth concealer paste over tattoo and blend edges with a sponge
• If necessary add an additional layer by using your fingertips, dabbing the concealer over the tattoo
• When completely dry, apply setting powder with a makeup brush. Shake or blow off any excess.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure you are happy with the coverage of the concealer before applying the setting powder. 
Once you put the setting powder on you CANNOT put more concealer over the top of the powder as it sets the concealer and will ball up and come off the skin.

Match Tattoo Camo shades to your skin tone, not to the colors of your tattoo. By using lighter and darker shades you create an invisible cover that masks your tattoo completely and looks absolutely natural.
