Q: My tattoo has very bold colors. What should I do if the Hide Ink Tattoo Cover does not completely cover my tattoo?
A: A second application over the first is sometimes needed for full coverage if the Hide Ink Tattoo Cover does not completely cover your tattoo. You will still retain all the comfort and flexibility you had with only one layer.
Q: Why do I notice some “cracking” when I first applied my Hide Ink Tattoo Cover?
A. Depending on how close to a joint the tattoo is, some “cracking” may appear when you first apply your Hide Ink Tattoo Cover, but it usually lessens over time. If applying near a joint or other “high skin movement area”, apply while skin is in a semi-stretched position to reduce cracking.
Q: What can I do if the Hide Ink Tattoo Cover’s shade does not match my skin tone exactly?
A: Hide Ink Tattoo Covers may not blend perfectly with the skin as skin tones vary from person to person. For the most part, our covers will match well enough to provide an easy, quick, economic way to adhere to company policies for no visible tattoos on a daily basis. If you are going to use it for a special occasion, try it before-hand to make sure you like the way it looks on you. Leave it on for 24 hours and see at which point it matches your skin tone the best as the appearance may vary slightly over time. Many people who use them for special occasions will use makeup over the cover to blend it to their individual skin color. Be sure not to use "oil based" makeup over it as some oils will remove the cover. Also, the "rounder" the shape you cut the cover into before applying it, the less noticeable it is. Corners on a square cover tend to catch the eyes attention a little more than a circular shape. Please feel free to contact us with your specific situation and we will answer your questions and give you suggestions on how to get the best results from our product.
Q: How can Hide Ink Tattoo Covers be removed?
A: You can remove Hide Ink Tattoo Covers with rubbing alcohol, baby oil, or transparent household tape. They are resistant to water and most soaps to ensure that they last several days on the skin. To remove, saturate with household rubbing alcohol or baby oil; wait 15 seconds, then rub away with cotton ball or wash cloth. In the future, we will be offering Hyde, Inc. Tattoo Cover Remover for our customer’s convenience.
