Tattoos are a form of self-expression and a way to exercise individuality. A tattoo is a commitment to a piece of art that could be on your body forever. If you have a tattoo on your wrist, there will be occasions when a temporary cover up is necessary, such as before a job interview, corporate meeting, or a formal event. You can take some quick steps to cover your wrist tattoo.

You can cover a wrist tattoo in a few easy steps.

Step 1

Dispense a dime-sized amount of makeup primer onto your fingers and apply a thin layer of it over the tattoo on your wrist. Wait five minutes to allow the primer to dry.

Step 2

Apply a waterproof concealer directly onto the tattoo. Use a makeup sponge to blend lightly and apply additional layers of concealer until the tattoo is covered. Wait five minutes to allow the concealer to dry.

Step 3

Dust translucent loose powder over the concealed tattoo with a loose powder makeup brush. This will set the concealer, perfect the application and give you an airbrushed finish. No matter what type of makeup you use to cover up a tattoo you will need an application of powder to set the makeup.
