So, to simplify the problem of a lot of people, we have come up with the right measures through which you can hide your tattoo. As opposed to the permanent removing procedure of tattoos, these are only the temporary ways to camouflage a tattoo. You just have to follow them correctly, in order to effectively cover up your tattoo. You can hide your tattoos through:


The best way to cover a tattoo is through make-up. Make-up helps to conceal a tattoo, like it was never there. Although make-up takes some time, yet it is very effective in camouflaging tattoos. You just need patience and dedication to apply it on a daily basis. With our tips, you can properly cover your tattoos in just a few minutes. So get started with it:

  • Make sure that the tattoo has fully healed before applying make-up. Normally a tattoo takes 30 to 45 days in healing.
  • Before starting with your make-up, cleanse your tattooed area properly as dirty skin can cause rashes and infections. You can use a wet wipe or a face wash to clean the area. With this, the skin easily absorbs the make-up.
  • Start with applying a light concealer. Make sure that the concealer is a few shades lighter than your natural complexion. Use a make-up brush or sponge to apply the concealer. Once you’ve done this, wait for a minute or two and let it dry.
  • Use a foundation that perfectly blends with your skin tone. You can use any type of foundation, whether a cream based, liquid, or spray foundation. After applying it, use your fingers to spread it evenly. At the end, use a blotting paper.
  • Apply a coat of translucent powder with a large powder brush. This will provide a matte finish to the tattooed area.
  • Finish the make-up by squirting a hairspray over the translucent powder. This will set the make-up in place, so that it does not spoil your clothes or any other thing. Before touching or covering it, make sure that the make-up has fully dried.
  • To be on the safer side, do a trial run before the actual event. This will give you an idea of how to apply make-up and inform you if it matches your skin tone or not. Also, when you would have tried it beforehand, you will be able to do it much faster.
