I was just wondering if anyone can recommend someone who specializes in tattoo coverups in the henderson or las vegas area. (nothing on the strip)

I started my coverup a while ago (not here) and the artist is a little too far away to go have him finish, so i wondered if there was anyone good here that can finish it up.

please recommend shops and people with good reps and sanatary practice. someone with a soft hand please. the artist i was using was AMAZING but had a heavy hand. i am no stranger to tattoos but this guy made me cry like a little girl. (no joke) its about 9 hours into it so i am almost done the only thing left is to finish up the shoulder some shading and a few more vines on the lower back.

thanks a bunch.

(someone affordable would be nice too)

Okay, this guy has his own TV show about doing cover-ups in Vegas. I have no idea how good he is in real life. And, apparently, he's busy.

My friend is the manager at Hardline Tattoo on Arville. He does very good coverups.

I need a tattoo to cover up a quarter size scar from a bicycling racing crash. It is on the side of my knee. What do you guys recommend?

Tattoos are not good for covering scars. The ink does not set in scar tissue like it does in skin. You'll want plastic surgery if it bothers you that much.

A good experienced artist can make this work. The results will depend how on severe the scarring is but its done all the time.

An experienced tattoo artist won't have a problem with any type of scare. They usually welcome the challenge.
