Thought i'd share some tips and discussions about models with tattoos!

My tattoo cover up video - http://youtu.be/Ggj0z06wfq0

I'm a internationally published Glamour model and have 3 large tattoos. I find some clients prefer them covered so I found the most amazing tattoo cover up make-up thought i'd share with you guys as i'm often asked how I cover them.. and it's nice to be able to do work for clients who both like and dislike tattoos. I use sally hansens airbrush legs which isn't intended for tattoos but covers them amazing and is very waterproof!

Not very successful, I'm afraid - the tattoo area is a totally different colour - yellow/green - while the rest of you is brown/pink.
It's not Fine Art just because it's in Black and White.

Could tell straight off the mark you have a chest piece - word has it the Sephora cover up stuff works really well though!

I suspect there is more than just the cream going on - looks like some obvious Photoshop editing as well. Sorry but it doesn't work well enough for me. And why leave that bit on the arm showing?

Just looks like bad clone brush to be honest, you can see repeating... for want of a better word "pores".

I remember seeing this on TV, Kat VonD, impressed me at the time:

I would like to think this was posted in irony.

The cover up is so obvious, its the first thing you notice in the image

I'm pretty convinced there are no products which cover up tattoos. Why try to cover a tattoo or photoshop it anyway?...either accept the model has a tattoo or book a model who doesn't...would surely be the sensible thing to do....?
I tend to be a modest man, but then I do have a lot to be modest about.

Am I the only one that wonders if the profile is real? You know, sign up day 1, advertise product on forums on day 2....

If I am presuming rightly the tattoo is under that big yellow blotch on your chest. In which case it hasn't worked, well slightly incorrect it has worked as a cover up but it's failed miserably in the respect of hiding it. Anyone but and blind man on a fast horse can see that you have a big yellow patch of make-up where there should be beautiful skin. It looks both odd, unflattering and to me the shot would be completely unusable.

I'm not necessarilly against models with tattoos, but for any commercial purpose outside advertising tattoos or tattooists.  Any cover up MUST be exactly that, seemless and invisable, or the completely the opposite, like for instance, clothes??
