Using black colour is one of the easiest ways of covering up a tattoo. You can make use of other darker shades as well for the purpose. Sometimes using totally different colours on an existing tattoo gives a different shade. Usually, colours like orange, red, dark magenta are useful in covering up a tattoo.

Use your hair
