Too often in our industry, we meet clients who are less than happy with their existing tattoo work. Although Voodoo Tattoo Studio guarantees all work, many establishments and tattoo party artists either do not guarantee their work or are not capable of correcting their own mistakes.
SILLY DRAGON TO SCARY DRAGON -
Jessica is a lovely girl who got an inexpensive tattoo at a local tattoo party. Unfortunately, the fierce dragon she'd hoped for turned out as a silly and juvenile dragon (as seen in the "before" picture below). With freehand design, LEX was able to transform the offending tattoo into a fierce design Jessica could be proud to wear. Jessica's beautiful smile says it all.
Another issue of contention is the method of cover-up/repair: those without imagination (or technique or experience) often advise these clients that something big and black is the only solution in most cover-up/repair situations. For a large percentage of clients, this is just not true: clever design and placement can transform what was once not much better than a scar into a new and beautiful piece of body art.
AMATEUR TO PROFESSIONAL -
Like many clients, when Kellie was a minor, she got a tattoo (shown in the "before picture) from an amateur artist/friend. MICHELLE custom designed the new tattoo that completely obscures the old tattoo without looking at all like a cover-up.
TATTOO RESCUE -
Sean is a true tattoo enthusiast who commissioned another artist to begin a freehand tribal dragon. Willing to devote half his back, shoulder and upper arm to the piece, he was immediately disappointed with the artist's style and the direction in which the piece was headed.
THAT'S A COVER-UP?
Matt has an old tattoo he was never satisfied with, and was interested in getting a memorial tattoo for his grandparents in the form of a bass scene with their initials incorporated. This series of pictures shows in detail the cover-up process and how effectively LEX used color (instead of black) to accomplish the transformation.
TATTOO RESTORATION -
Tattoo restoration is sometimes necessary for clients with older tattoos. Tattoo enthusiasts will tell you: little compares with the euphoria of showing off a newly healed, bright, sharp tattoo. Unfortunately, over the course of time, what once looked sharp and bright can become faded and blurred. Some clients are not aware of how damaging tanning and sun exposure can be to body art. Whatever the reason, the artists at Voodoo Tattoo Studio are experienced at the process of tattoo restoration.
BETTER THAN EVER -
This client loved her unicorn tattoo but over the 20 years since she had gotten it, the lines had blurred and color faded. She told MICHELLE she wanted the design updated and to look more modern and complete. MICHELLE was able to restore this tattoo to far beyond it's original glory.
