Tattoos, scars, stretch-marks etc.
Many do not want to have their tattoos, stretchmarks or scars show in their photos, but it is best to find a way to cover the problem areas with your wardrobe or accessories than to cover them with makeup.
Sometimes full body spray tanning is the best choice for doing a lot of cover-ups. You can find local spray tan businesses by Googling for them. Be sure and ask if they can cover tattoos completely.
We can do spot cover-ups of tattoos, stretchmarks and scars , however it will usually be at an additional minimum fee of $25 for the first 15 minutes plus $25 per 15 minutes of additional time, and you must have realistic expectations.
We cannot guarantee that it will look perfect under every lighting situation or that it will not rub off on your clothing or on those you come in contact with.
Because this type of cover-up will take additional time it must be booked with the service in advance so reserved booking times will include the time to do it. The larger and darker the area the more time that is required to cover it. Covering dark tattoos on very light pale skin completely can be very time consuming.
The color of scars and tattoos and stretchmarks can usually be changed sufficiently by layering foundations and coverups to closely match the adjacent skin color, however changes of lighting types, the direction of the light and the varying color temperatures of the different light sources that you will encounter during your day, including the harsh light of direct flash photography may show variations in color and reflectance on “spot or small areas of makeup”. This is because of the different way skin and makeup reflect light and react to those variables.
This is especially a problem for tattoos, stretch marks and scars where the area of the skin is raised slightly higher than the normal skin, or has a texture to it making it 3 dimensional. We cannot eliminate shadows that will come and go depending on the direction of the light…
Another consideration is the location of the cover-up. If the areas will have a lot of contact and or rubbing with fabric from your dress, veil, straps, sleeves, or perhaps more importantly those you hug or rub up against when walking together or during mingling with guests, you will have problems. No matter how well set, makeup will not hold up under sustained contact or friction without continual attention.
