Beautiful as they are, visible tattoos can be hard to hide.
You may want to hide a tattoo for work, a formal event, or because you don’t want to see it anymore. Lucky for you, the easiest way to hide tattoos temporarily is with a skin tone plaster.
Tattoo masking plasters are made to look like fake skin and help cover up tattoos of varying sizes.
Sometimes, you might wish your tattoos would disappear for a little while. Sometimes it’s hard to find a good tattoo cover-up tape on the market.
You don’t have to worry about that with Pearl Lemon Tattoos because we’ve got it covered.
Body arts are meant to be shown, flaunted for everyone to see.
However, there are occasions when you’d rather hide the art than cause unnecessary commotion and/or missed opportunities.
Perhaps you want to hide your tattoo for important events in your life; say, maybe you’re getting married and want to hide your ink for that special occasion.
It could be because you want a more traditional wedding or because your tattoo is in an area that isn’t usually covered by clothing, and you don’t want people to see it.
You might also want to hide your tattoo for other events, like christenings, competitions, and pageants. In the end, you might worry that your tattoo will be seen at the big event, and you might want to hide it, which is entirely normal.
Once upon a time, tattoos were gravely frowned upon in the workplace, but as time went on, they became more and more accepted. However, some companies still don’t like tattoos and don’t think they should be allowed in the workplace.
Traditional jobs dealing with customers often look down on people with tattoos. Tattoos, on the other hand, are more common in creative fields.
However, not everyone gets the opportunity to work in the creative field, so for those who would still want to embrace their body art but are stuck in a traditional workplace, a temporary tattoo cover-up, such as a tattoo plaster, will definitely help.
When you get inked by a not-so-good tattoo artist, chances are your tattoo barely resembles the design you chose or will look like someone just played with your tat.
If this is the kind of tattoo you have, we totally understand why you want it covered.
After all, no one wants a half-baked and ugly tat to look at.
There are alot of variations when it comes to tattoo plasters, so if you want to know which ones are the best for you, check the variations we have below.
And remember that when using a tattoo plaster, you should always follow the directions on the package to get the best results.
Most of our tattoo artists suggest using an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal plaster. This helps keep the tattoo free of bacteria that can cause an infection.
Ask your tattoo artist which product would work best with your skin. If your skin is dehydrated, you can choose a moisture-wicking tattoo plaster to keep the wound moist.
The best tattoo plaster can stand against water and sweat. Because of this, this plaster is excellent for people who play sports or do other competitions and would instead get their tattoos hidden.
The best tattoo plasters don’t cause allergies and are suitable for people with sensitive skin. This is an excellent choice if you want to skip the aftercare steps for a tattoo so that the wound doesn’t dry out.
How big your plaster is will depend on the size of your tattoo. You can choose a circle or oval-shaped tattoo plaster if needed. This plaster typically stays in place.
Many bandages say they will do their job, but in the end, they don’t because they make you even more comfortable than when your tattoo is exposed. Get this tattoo bandage that fits well, is comfortable, and will protect your tattoo.
If you still can’t decide but agree with what’s listed above, tattoo artists from Pearl Lemon Tattoos can help you!
We have tattoo plasters that cover up your tattoo without damaging it and making you uncomfortable. Shop now.
You’ll put them on your tattoo by cutting them in half and sticking them on. After firmly putting the tattoo-covering tape on your skin, wait about 15 minutes and then carefully peel the sticker off.
A new layer of skin colour will be added to your tattoo. This method can hide a tattoo for up to 5 days.
Choose tattoo stickers from a reputable company if you don’t want to hurt your skin or cause other problems.
For the adhesive tattoo plasters, you need to be very careful. Work slowly and carefully because if you aren’t careful, the covering might stick to the skin, which could cause the ink to leak out.
If you can’t get the plaster off, you can try to remove it by running it under lukewarm water; however, this might not make the plaster reusable.
Bear in mind that before you try to remove the plaster, your hands must be cleansed and washed with antimicrobial soap to avoid infection.
Fortunately, there are a lot of ways to cover up a tattoo. If you don’t want a tattoo plaster, other people also use methods to temporarily or permanently hide their tattoos.
Feel free to try out a couple of ways to cover up your tattoo before the actual day it’s needed to be hidden.
Plan ahead so you can focus and figure out how long it will take to cover up the tattoo and pick which method suits you best.
Pick clothes that will cover up the tattoo.
Wear long sleeves or long pants if your tattoo is on your arm or leg. Try on clothes and look in the mirror to ensure that even when you move, the clothes cover the tattoo entirely.
Make sure people can’t see your tattoo through your clothes. If the tattoo shows through your shirt, wear a second shirt. Don’t push your sleeves up out of habit if that will show your tattoo.
Use makeup to hide the tattoo.
You can buy a concealer in any drugstore or beauty supply store that matches the colour of your skin. After you’ve washed and dried your skin, put the concealer over the tattoo. Blend the concealer all over the tattoo with a makeup sponge. Use a makeup brush to apply a neutral pressed powder on top of the concealer to set it.
Put bandages on.
You can cover your tattoo with a few bandages if your tattoo is small. Remember that this may still draw people’s attention to the area and make them think you’re hurt. Be ready to answer questions about how you got injured. Large bandages, which you can buy at drugstores, can be used to cover up a large tattoo. Be careful when putting bandages and medical tape on top of body hair.
You can also buy an actual plaster that has the same colour as your skin for an effective and easy way to cover your tattoo completely.
Cover-up tattoos are basically new tattoos that are put in the same spot as an unwanted tattoo. This hides the unwanted tattoo. It’s important to remember that the cover-up has to be bigger than the original tattoo. This is an excellent alternative to removing a tattoo because it can often be done much faster and cheaper.
Cover-ups can be used for a lot of different things. Some people regret doing a piece and want a quick and easy way to get rid of it. Some people also have bad tattoos that don’t last long and start to fade significantly. Instead of getting the tattoo fixed, they would get a new one to cover up the bad one.
Covering up your tattoos for a while is understandable. After all, there are various circumstances that a tattooed person can face when it comes to flaunting their body art.
Whichever reason you may have for covering that up, we’re here to help.
With tattoo plasters that temporarily cover up your ink, you can easily do what you need to do without a visible tat.
So what are you waiting for?

It takes a lot of time and patience to cover particularly large tattoos, but if you believe that the tattoo doesn't go with the look you're trying for, it's worth it.
If you're using a tattoo plaster, however, keep in mind that the tattoo plaster can only cover up to its size, so if you're covering up a somewhat bigger tattoo, consider getting a tattoo plaster that's bigger than the actual tattoo or putting multiple plasters on one tattoo.
You can leave your tattoo plaster on for 3-4 days, but we recommend not going past five days to keep your tattoo art pristine.
Before putting on a tattoo plaster, ensure the skin around it has been shaved. It might be unpleasant to take a plaster off of hair.
Also, make sure the tattoo is clean and that the area is dry. Don't use anything with isopropyl alcohol or glycerin to clean the area; just an anti-microbial soap that your skin trusts and dry it thoroughly.
