Easy Ways to Conceal Tattoos

If you take the decision to get a tattoo, it’s usually natural that you want to have it on show. They are creative, expressive and a fun way to decorate our bodies like our very own canvas. However, sometimes you may want or need to conceal your tattoo. This could be because of a job interview, a workplace restriction, for a formal event, or other circumstance when your tattoos need to go undercover. Depending on the location of your tattoo, it could be very easy to cover it with clothing, for example, a scarf or longer sleeves. However, if it is more visible you may need to get more creative and use more effective means of concealment. If you want or need to keep your body art a secret, there are a number of easy ways to conceal tattoos…


#1 Hair

One of the easiest and quickest ways to cover up and conceal a visible tattoo is to cover it with your hair. Tattoos on people’s necks or behind their ears have always been popular, and these are in fact some of the easiest areas of skin ink to conceal. If you have long hair, wear your hair down or in a loose ponytail down your back to ensure you conceal the tattoo. To conceal them behind your ears, pull your hair down around your face and ears.

#2 Jewellery

If you have a tattoo on your wrist then you are in luck. It’s one of the easiest places to hide,

since you could pile on the bracelets. Add a thick bangle or perhaps stacking six or seven skinny bangles. That will ensure your ink remains out of full view while your wrist is well accessorised.


#3 Tights

If you have ankle or leg tattoos and you’re going to a dressy event, you could wear opaque, black tights to cover them up. While your ink may be hidden, this is still a fashion forward look.

#4 Makeup

Another effective way of covering over and concealing tattoos is using makeup. Find a heavy-duty foundation or specially developed concealer to cover up the ink temporarily.
