covering a tattoo
Ok for oct I need to cover two of my tattoos on my arms as they really dont suit the character I am doing.

Now I have looked online and the cover up stuff is expensive. I would rather do it with make-up and jsut seal it so it doesnt come off....but I dont know how.

Any help?

Well, I seriously have no clue without as I've not had to cover a tattoo before, but what about the snazaroo face paint. You can get in flesh colour as well (I discover only a little while ago)

But I think make-up would work as well...

... Maybe using the snazaroo then seal it? Face paint is a lot thicker

I found a piece of text on this forum which I have quoted below - I hope it's useful to you

Quote Delusional:
For those who want to cover up tattoos, check out specialist make-up shops like Charles Fox in London. They do special very heavy foundation for people who wish to cover up dark marks on the skin such as birth marks, scars or tattoos. Works very well!

Unless theyre extremely light covering tattoos with a normal foundation or make up will not work. You need a lot heavier stuff and as expensive as it is the very best stuff you can get is the specialist cover up make up. The best way to cover up though is to use a more orangy colour and cover over the actual lines of the tattoo rather then just smearing it everywhere and then lightly blend a lighter shade over the top making sure to blend it into you skin. Brush a loose powder to help fix it and take any sheen off and you should be fine all day as long as you dont have something rubbing constantly against it. I have a heavy lined tattoo on my stomach and that technique never fails to work. If I can't be bothered with make up though I buy some skin coloured medical bandage/patches which you can find in most chemists. Stick it down with a bit of spirit gum and then use a good make up which matches your skin colour to cover over it quickly and make it look more natural and of course blending it into your skin. Good luck! ^-^
