Any tattooer that knows what they’re doing can tell you that coverups can be tricky things. It truly takes skill to execute a coverup piece that looks good — and not completely obvious.
There are many great things about this piece done by Molly. Including this (words straight from Molly’s fingertips): “This is a cover up of a very large, thick, tribal arm band on Adam’s forearm. The top part is all healed and the lower half is fresher.”

Just last Sunday I got to tattoo this black and grey warthog skull on my buddy Trevor's arm. Trevor is one of my favorite Salem locals, a super metal dude with a big beard who rides around in our bike crew every day and I was psyched to get a chance to start some work on his arms.

Best friend to everyone, Jay Ski, just finished up this tattoo. Traditional style gypsy holding a skull and a candle. Although Jay's obviously a champ with the super traditional stuff, he can also step up to tackle realism, portraits, you name it! Check out his portfolio and give us a call in the shop (978.744.9393) or stop on by (186-3 Essex Street, Salem, Massachusetts) to book up some time wit
