In reality, not everyone gets a tattoo to show them off.
The body is the gorgeous canvas used for tattoos, which are works of art. Not to sound overly sentimental, but tattoos are physical representations of our inner selves and they’re cool. But because of #life, there are instances when you need to find a cunning technique to cover up an obvious tattoo.
We’re not saying you’re embarrassed or regretful about getting a tattoo. It simply means that the piece of body art cannot always be on display. You are still proud of it, and it is still there. It’s essentially your lovely little secret. With that said, here are some smart ways you can cover up tattoos on your body.
Let Your Hair Down (Or Tie It Up)
Keeping your hair down is the simplest technique to conceal a tattoo on the popular area of the back of the neck. But even when you want to wear your hair up, you can keep your tattoo concealed by wearing a loose ponytail and allowing a few strands to escape the fastener. It’ll require some work and perhaps even some product. But give it a shot.
Whether it’s a tattoo on your neck or wrist, a scarf is one of the finest ways to keep those tattoos hidden from view. You can still loop or drape a silky, light scarf as part of your outfit and no one will even notice! You’ll appear to be simply being your incredibly fashionable, accessorised self.
Makeup does more than just make you look pretty!
This trick is not only effective but it’s simple. Just grab a heavy-duty concealer available in local makeup stores and all you have to do to cover your tattoo for a long time is draw on it. Creamy makeup comes in a variety of colours and is easily blendable. So, if your hair or scarf options don’t work, try concealer on your tattoo instead.
Consider yourself lucky if you have a tattoo on your wrist. Since you can stack on the bracelets, it’s one of the simplest ways to hide it. We suggest stacking six or seven thin bangles or adding a big bracelet. That will guarantee that your ink is concealed while your wrist is heavily accessorised and stylin’. Though it can be a little noisy! An even better option is to get a tattoo that resembles a bangle!
Naturally Hidden Spots
This is an obvious choice. By getting a tattoo in a covert region on your body, the design can also serve as a cunning cover. If you get a tattoo on the top of your foot, the inside of your ankle, behind your ears or your ribs, it will likely be covered up by clothing and hidden most of the time. Another option is to get a tattoo on the side of your finger, where it will always be covered by other fingers. That is a cunning way to conceal a tattoo.
Visible tattoos on your arms and legs can be readily hidden by sleeves and pant legs. A tattoo on your upper chest or neck might be concealed with a scarf. Longer socks or boots help conceal tattoos on your ankles or lower legs. Before leaving, put together an outfit and make sure your tattoos are completely hidden in plain sight in a mirror.
Final Tip: Watch Where You Place Your Tattoo
The most obvious thing to do is just be mindful of where you want to place your tattoo. It’s advisable to get your tattoo placed in a less prominent location on your body if you know you’ll be in a job atmosphere that doesn’t allow tattoos, attending many interviews, or having strict parents who forbid tattoos. The last thing you wanna do is get called out for showing off your ink.
