Clever Cover Up Tattoos After The Break Up Clever Cover Up Tattoos After The Break Up

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and we’d like to warn couples who are drunk on love (or just drunk) to think long and hard before partaking in the most notorious tattoo tradition: the name tattoo.

We know how it is… in the heat of the moment you and your special someone (that person you just met at the bar) become filled with passion (booze) and decide to express your love (lust) with matching name tattoos. But eventually, the magic wears off and you’re stuck with a permanent reminder of your mistakes forever… unless you’ve got money like Johnny Depp to turn that “Winona Forever” tat into “Wino Forever.” But there is another solution, that’s not as painful or as expensive as laser removal. Mind you it’s not painless or cheap, but it’ll do. Cover up tattoos may not erase your mistakes, but they cover them pretty well.

We wonder if the band underneath Janine’s name was to cover another ex-girlfriend’s name. At this rate he’ll have a tattoo sleeve in no time.


100percent tony flowers name cover up tattoo Clever Cover Up Tattoos After The Break Up


Now she’s 0% Tony. The shape of the flower petals hides the name pretty well in this case.

Lisa Rose Cover Up Tattoo Clever Cover Up Tattoos After The Break Up

Why didn’t anyone learn from Kat Von D that neck tattoos make it hard for your new partner to give you hickeys? At least this rose tattoo does a pretty good job of covering up Lisa’s name so Kelly can kiss it without getting jealous—until she gets to the OTHER tattoo at least.

barry before bird after name coverup tattoo Clever Cover Up Tattoos After The Break Up

This is actually a pretty good cover up, using the details in the branch to cover up the name. Kudos to Barry’s ex-girlfriend for coming up with something other than a flower.

Sometimes the best way to hide something is in plain sight. Since there was no way to cover this large “Cindy” tattoo, he just converted it into a tribal.

Hopefully this zombie tattoo isn’t an indication that Daisy is now pushing daisies… either way, it was obviously a messy break up.

Aw, you got a Mom tattoo? What? It was to cover up a tattoo with that skank’s initials? You’re doing your own laundry from now on.

Roses are a little cliché, but not nearly as cliché as the banner heart tattoo.

Forget trying to cover it up with something elaborate… just let everyone know that the relationship is void… permanently.

Troy Rose Coverup Tattoo Clever Cover Up Tattoos After The Break Up

Apparently we should be watching out for rose tattoos because they seem to be the ex cover up tattoo of choice. But can you blame people? The folds and shading in a rose disguise letters pretty well. She could never mention Troy and you would have no idea she was still technically married to him.

A two in one deal… she covered up Wayne’s name and those stupid flowers.

We gotta hand it to the artist here… the stripped stockings cover up the script lettering very well. Shayne, eat your heart out.

Not every boyfriend/girlfriend tattoo has to be a name… in this case it was their zodiac symbols, which even without a cover up doesn’t really have to be so obvious after the break up.

We think maybe her and Jeffrey are doing just fine and that it was just time to cover that stupid bear with something cooler.

      i saw your comment and was like, “wait, it doesn’t say USA?” and had to scroll up.
      these pictures are the reason you should never get someone’s name tattooed on you.
      well, no one you’re dating at least. family members are okay.

    Jesus Christ, I know that it’s crappy to have the name of an ex tattooed on you (how stupid would you have to be to do that in the first place?), but a lot of the replaced images are still hideous. This is why I’m never getting a tattoo.

      I second that

      a lot of the replacement tats here were worse than the actual ex’s name

      I rather get a knife and cut it off hahahaha but that’s me no pain no gain hee hee

    Sounds like stan wouldnt know a wart from his penis. To belittle peoples taste in tattoos has alot to be desired. I thought some of the cover up tattoos were great. Its not the artist fault when someone comes into their shop for a cover up. They have to work with what they are given and strive to turn something from bad to good. Caitlin if you get a tattoo use your head,get something tasteful and not something that is in trend at the time. Tattoos are forever so get something tasteful and wont go out of trend in a few months like so many no brainers seem to do. Yuppy tatts are a good example.

    Ha! The sad part is most of these tattoos could have easily been removed with laser tattoo removal for about $100 before they got their huge, multicolored tat to cover up the first mess. If its not to late and you’re reading this, you might want to consider getting it removed. The cover up will probably just remind you that you had something to cover up.

    Why bother covering up the “Tracy” tattoo? Dude had to shave off the bear pelt for anyone to see it anyway. Yikes!

    The rose and heart tattoo is a testament to love. A red rose is the most traditional way of reaching out to someones heart and delivering the message I Love You.

    I think body art is a fantastic way for artists and people to express their inner thoughts. It takes great skill to be a tattoist, not only a good drawer, but a very attentative, creative and sturdy handed person.

    Tattoos have been around for centuries, with the dynamics changing and the artwork more creative.

    People make mistakes, like the people above. However you can’t belittle them for these minor errors because i’m sure you have made mistakes.

    I have a bulldog on the top left arm (shoulder region) I got it when i was 15 and HAD to have a tattoo. Following that I have 3 others that I love! I’m now in the process of covering up the Bulldog and hopefully moving it to a design that signifies my daughter and myself. I came accross this site to see ‘what could be done’. Thankfully it looks like a lot could be done and I will soon have a tattoo that I love!

    Some of the cover-up tattoos may be worst than the original tattoos but still good laughs. A few of the ideas/stamps are pretty creative though.

    I often wonder why more people don’t just do laser for a few sessions to lighten the original tattoo(s) then goto a good tattooer to do a whole new tattoo over it as it opens up so many more options……

    This is the reason why it’s always best to follow the cardinal rule of tattoos:

    Never -EVER- put someone else’s name on your body, with two exceptions:

    Parents.

    or

    Children.

    Common Sense… So rare, it’s now officially a super power. -.-
