I want to cover this with something. It's on top of my foot.

Any suggestions, type, color, don't do it at all?

I worry about the blue bleeding through.

Everyone told me the colors would fade, but it's 6 years old and still pretty bright lol

You're going to have to go to a tattoo artist who is expiriencied in cover-ups. They will have to work with the black lines to come up with a design that will flow with the previous lines. You don't want a big black tattoo on your foot.

Good luck.

If the artist is experienced in cover ups that won't happen. I'm against just a big dark tattoo. So obvious. And not very attractive

Shouldn't be terribly hard to cover, really. Your best bet is to research some local tattoo artists and work with them on a custom piece - the best ones won't just 'cover' it or plaster a bunch of thick dark colors on it, they'll incorporate what's there into the new design. Flowers or butterflies are usually a good choice for coverups on tats like the one you have - they can be fairly detailed and brightly colored.

ETA: If you're worried about blue bleedthrough, mebbe a blue flower? :)

Yea, that would be gross. I wear sandals a lot too.
I was just curious if anyone had any experiences with it

I looked into removal, but it looks like cover up is WAY less painful

I would love some type of Celtic knot. Dark green, black outlines

That actually sounds like a really good idea. The angular lines and the darker color should work really well over what you have.

Research artists in your area that specialize in cover ups and schedule a consult.  The artist can design something that will work to cover the design and suit your personality.
