Tatjacket Tattoo Cover Up Liquid Concealer

Price: $19.99

Tatjacket offers heavy coverage that’s specifically formulated for tattoos! 

Editor Danielle St. Pierre found that it effectively hides dark ink when you combine a base concealer with two layers of Tatjacket. She was able to wear it for a full 8-hour day, and said the texture was “thick, yet moveable, which made blending very easy.”

Mehron Makeup Tattoo CoveRing

Price: $13.95

Mehron’s professional makeup products are made for the stage (they’re used on Broadway and by the New York City Ballet), so with a bit of skill, this is a tattoo cover-up that’ll give you complete and total coverage!

It comes with five shades, so to get the right match, start with the one closest to your skin tone to conceal, and then follow with translucent setting powder and your go-to foundation.

  • Lack of shade options
  • Sticky feel
  • Difficult to remove

Dermablend Leg and Body Makeup

Price: $34,00

If Dermablend sounds familiar, it may be because of a viral video where makeup artists concealed a full body of tattoos using the brand’s products! We put the leg and body foundation to the test to see if we could replicate the results.

  • 12 shade options available
  • Buildable coverage
  • 16-hour wear time
  • The formula has SPF 25

Thumbs down

  • Rubs off on light clothing

Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crème

Kat Von D’s full-coverage concealer locks down your ink with a highly pigmented, oil-free formula. While not enough to totally cover a tattoo on its own, editors found this to be an effective base layer to combine with other heavy-duty cover-up products.

Thumbs up

  • 21 shade options available
  • Easy-to-use sponge applicator
  • Washes off easily

Thumbs down

  • Not great for large tattoos
  • Won’t completely cover tattoos on its own
