Tattoos always seem like a good idea when you're getting them done. They seem more like a pain in the tush when you need to cover them up for a job interview, formal event or any occasion where you would rather not display your creative and perhaps controversial body art.
As many have discovered (the hard way), it takes more than a swipe of your favorite foundation and concealer to cover one of these bad boys up. Darker ink colors tend to bleed through the coverage and often times leave a grayish undertone on the skin. Tattoo coverage is an art form within itself. Thankfully, I've learned to use color theory to make tattoos a figment of your imagination.
In this case, a photographer needed to take a photo that focused on the models back. Unfortunately, her tattoo wasn't in his vision. While he could have easily photoshopped the tattoo out of his picture, I find it's my responsibility to do as much of the "photoshop" work with makeup as possible. In 10 minutes I go from Makeup Artist to Magician. Abracadabra!!!! POOF! The tattoo is GONE!
