Revolver Tattoo - Lachie Grenfell

Filling gaps between several other tattoos, is a tricky task some times. Too many Melbourne tattoo artists get lazy and just run their tattoos over the surrounding ones, rather than redrawing it, so that it fits properly.

Stray Cats Cover-Up Tattoo

Although this is not exactly a cover up, it is what we would call a "blast over". The idea of a tattoo like this is to do a strong tattoo over the top of a weaker tattoo, simply to draw attention away from the old faded tattoo.
