Will gray ink cover a tattoo?

I would like to cover my tattoo and need to know if gray ink will do it.

That depends on the colors of your tattoos. Most tattoos need dark colors to cover them, and black is the only option in many cases.

Not likely, depends how dark the other ink is. Using only gray ink wouldn't be wise, black would have to be used as well. Go into a shop and ask.

Any color of inks will cover a tattoo, those colors include gray. Gray ink will cover up your tattoo as any other colors. I had a tattoo that I had regret for and I used gray ink to cover it up because my skin is now wrinkled as I have aged.

It all depends on the color of the ink. If you have a black tattoo like I had, the gray will not cover it. If you were to have a color that is lighter than gray, it may cover it. The best solution is trying to use a darker color of ink than what you already have inked to you.

First of all, it mostly depends on the color of your tattoo. If for example, your tattoo is black, you most certainly cannot cover it with gray ink, the best you could do is remake the tattoo. However, I believe that gray ink isn't capable of covering any tattoo fully, since it isn't a very strong colour.

Nothing covers a tattoo. My niece had a tattoo on her back and she did want it covered when she got married. We tried everything, make-up, ink, power paste and nothing worked. You will probably need to have burnt off.

It depends on the color of your current tattoo. If the gray ink is darker than the colors you have then it will cover it up. Most of the time black or dark blue is used. If the cover-up is temporary you could always get creative through the use of accessories or even a big gauze bandage :-)
