How To Cover a Tattoo
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.
Step 2: CORRECT
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.
- Coral Adjuster #320 covers black and blue tones
- Red Adjuster #322 covers green tones
- Olive Adjuster #321 covers red tones
- Yellow Ochre #324 covers black and blue tones
- Henna #201 covers green tones
- Cool Blue #325 covers red tones
For detailed work, or a tattoo with multiple colors, use a precision brush to apply the Dura Specialty Color.
Step 3: CONCEAL
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.
You may need to use a warmer foundation shade on the color adjusted area before applying the actual skin tone.
Step 4: COMPLETE
Once dried, apply your favorite translucent powder over the entire area. Gently pat to set.
