One of the reasons that many adults hesitate on getting the tattoo of their dreams is the fear that they will find themselves in a workplace that does not encourage or allow visible tattoos. While most employers in 2022 understand that tattoos are a means of self-expression that does not affect one’s ability to do their appreciated job, some corporations expect professionals to hide tattoos while on the job.
Whether you’re dreaming about a tattoo from Certified Tattoo Studios but worried about consequences at work or are worried about changing career paths due to your number of visible tattoos, don’t worry – it is easier than ever before to cover tattoos for an extended period of time with the use of cosmetics, clothing, and more.
If you need to cover up your tattoo(s) for employment purposes, here are a few options.
Full Coverage Makeup
One of the most obvious and effective ways to cover up tattoos is with the use of makeup, such as heavy-duty foundations and concealers. Companies like KVD Beauty and Dermablend make full coverage products that are designed specifically for the use of covering tattoos; their products are water-resistant and intended to be worn for long periods of time, so you will be worry-free during a long workday.
Blank Skin Sheets
These revolutionary products available from retailers like Amazon can be customized to match your skin tone and adhere to the skin like a bandaid. With a skin-like appearance, these sheets are used by tattoo artists to practice tattooing blank skin, but can also be used to conceal existing tattoos, especially in areas that will be partially covered by clothing as well. These sheets grip tightly to your skin, so they will last well during a long day of wear – just be warned that they might hurt a little coming off, similar to the feeling of ripping off a bandaid.
Special tattoo cover-up sleeves from companies like Tat2X are made of cooling fabric and grip the skin with an elastic band, keeping them in place for hours at a time. These are a great idea for those who would prefer to conceal their tattoos with clothing as opposed to a cosmetic product but want a little extra coverage or protection. These sleeves come in a variety of colors and sizes, so they can be customized to your skin tone and the size of the area you’d like to cover, and are safe for sensitive skin.
