Tattoo reality shows have been around for a while now and have helped bring an oversimplified, commercialized version of tattoo culture into the mainstream. Some of these shows have been better than others – the information they provide varies in accuracy and the quality of the tattoo work done on these shows is at times sub-par. The newest trend in tattoo reality shows has been presenting to the public the world of “tattoo cover ups,” in which participants with less than satisfactory tattoos can come onto the show to have the “experts” in tattoo cover ups draw up a new design that will mask their poor tattoo work forever. At Majestic, we actually appreciate these shows for the reason that they are helping bring awareness to the public that people should not have to settle with low quality tattoo work with the amount of talent and expertise available in every city across the country and even the world. It encourages people to truly think twice before they go to an inexperienced artist or try to save money on tattoos; it simply isn’t worth it. Tattoo is one industry where you really get what you pay for.
Ink Master, Tattoo Nightmares, and other tattoo TV shows are inspiring more and more people to look at their own tattoos and wonder if there is a way to rework or refashion them to make them fit in with the high quality of tattoo work that is worn by so many others. If you live in the NYC metropolitan area or ever come to visit New York City, and if you have thought twice about that tattoo you got when perhaps you were young and didn’t know any better, contact Adal to see how your tattoo can be covered, revitalized, and made into something you will be proud of and that will turn heads. View the Cover Up Tattoos page for some examples of cover-ups Adal has done throughout the years.
