Anyone who has frolicked across the tattoo business is aware of there’s a little bit of a stigma behind name tattoos. Whereas many people respect the romantic gesture, most of the time title tattoos are typically the kiss of demise for a relationship. However, as a smart man as soon as stated, that’s why the good lord gave us cover-ups.
Travis Barker, recent off his engagement to Kourtney Kardashian, determined it was time to cowl up the title tattoo of his ex-wife Shanna Moakler over the weekend. The Blink-182 drummer and pop-punk kingpin turned to celebrated artist Scott Campbell for the duty, and as anticipated, Campbell did an exceptional job with the cover-up/blast over.
In an Instagram submit of his personal, Barker touted Scorpio season because the inspiration for the scorpion tattoo. Now, I do not know a lot about astrology, however I am fairly positive that scorpion goes to look fairly kickass no matter the place the celebs are aligned.
The second tattoo, a lipstick kiss, wasn’t simply pulled from one among Campbell’s flash sheets. Nope, as a substitute Kardashian received in on the artistic course of, threw on some black lipstick and made her mark. The mark went to a stencil, the stencil went on to Barker’s arm, and VOILA! The tattoo was full.
Right here at Inked, we’re big fans of the blast over method. It saves you from lots of very uncomfortable laser periods to lighten the tattoo for the standard cover-up. However largely we like the best way the tattoos beneath proceed to peek out a bit of. There’s one thing about the best way the tattoos have been lined, however not fully eliminated, that provides a way of intrigue to the piece. When carried out properly, there’s actually nothing higher.
Campbell did a beautiful job with the 2 items and we assure Barker and Kardashian are proud of the brand new additions.
