How To Cover a Tattoo

Advanced Airbrush: Tattoo Coverage

Hiding a tattoo can be difficult, but TEMPTU’s Tattoo Coverage Kits conceal even the darkest ink in 4 easy steps.
Our Dura formula is waterproof, non-transferable and provides coverage that lasts.


Step 1: PREP

Based on your client's skin tone, choose the Tattoo Coverage Kit in Light or the Tattoo Coverage Kit in Dark. Prep skin by wiping down the area with Alcohol 99. For lasting results, avoid using oils or moisturizer before applying Dura Specialty Color.


Using color theory, choose the Dura Specialty Color that will cancel out the colors in the tattoo. Apply the Dura Specialty Color over the tattoo with your airbrush gun staying 1-2 inches away from the skin.

Tattoo Coverage Kit in Light:
  • Coral Adjuster #320 covers black and blue tones
  • Red Adjuster #322 covers green tones
  • Olive Adjuster #321 covers red tones
Tattoo Coverage Kit in Dark:
  • Yellow Ochre #324 covers black and blue tones
  • Henna #201 covers green tones
  • Cool Blue #325 covers red tones

Pro Tip:

For detailed work, or a tattoo with multiple colors, use a precision brush to apply the Dura Specialty Color.


Test the foundation color on patches to find the best shade. Apply foundation with your airbrush gun directly over the corrected layer staying 1-2 inches away. To make sure the skin is even and blended, apply past the edge of the color adjusted area.

Pro Tip:

You may need to use a warmer foundation shade on the color adjusted area before applying the actual skin tone.


Once dried, apply your favorite translucent powder over the entire area. Gently pat to set.
