Many people have tattoos that seemed like a good idea at the time and whether it was through a bad choice of tattooists, a bottle of J.D. or whatever, the results won't go away. There is a solution apart from a laser or a long sleeved shirt: 

Some bad tattoos are restorable to a proper version of the original plan and these are known as reworks, but the majority are usually only savable through cover-ups and you may be limited on the choice of design. 

Remember that a cover up cannot always be your dream tattoo as it may not be possible to fit a specific design to the old piece, this depends how dark and distorted the old tattoo is. Usually we can come up with a good compromise though and anyone needing help or information about cover ups should contact us.

Tribal is usually not applicable here unless you want a black square, but there are more options than the standard black panther or peacock of old depending on the size of the old tattoo and intensity of dark pigments.
