tattoo coverup!

Can anybody reccommend any products to help cover a tattoo? I have small tattoos on each shoulder that I am in the process of getting removed. I have to put the removal off until after the wedding, so right now they are VERY light. I want them covered for the wedding. Which products work the best?

    I know Davids Bridal sells a kit, and I think I've read that Kat Von D has one out there as well.

    Thank you! I have seen a bunch of kits but I worry about how well the make up stays.

    Are you having a MUA do your makeup for your wedding day?  If so, maybe consult with them on the best items to use to cover up your tattoos.  They may have a few tricks up their sleeves on making sure the cover up stays put.

    it is a really good thing they are on your shoulders, because then if you do makeup or airbrush it will most likely not get on your dress (depending on your style dress). However, I am in the process of removal as well, and before removal I tried every cover up imaginable. Kat Von D did not work. Cover fax may work if the tattoos are significantly lighter, but your best bet would be to get them airbrushed, this way they can cover them up with makeup and then set airbrush over them. Ask makeup artists about airbrushing tattoos. They are VERY hard to cover up unfortunately. Although, if they are light enough you may be able to just use a thick makeup like cover fax. Go to MAC and have them try and cover it up, they use a reddish liner to outline the tattoo and then use a cover up, this was the best one I found.

    Good luck!
