This wiki has been updated 19 times since it was first published in May of 2018. Even if you love your ink, potential employers, judgmental family members, or your modeling and acting agent may not feel the same way. Perhaps you're tired of those tattoos, but you can't afford to have them removed. Whatever the reason for needing one, we found a varied selection of concealers that can make your artwork vanish in a flash. We included both physical sleeves and cosmetics options. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

June 16, 2020:

Finding the right tattoo concealer can take some work, as you'll need to match your skin tone so that you avoid any noticeable light or dark patches. That's why we've chosen a range of options, most of which come in many colors to suit a range of users. We ultimately opted to remove a couple of choices due to relatively poor results, including Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty and Amazing Cosmetics Corrector. But we still think that Make Up Forever Extreme is a great option for all-day coverage — as long as you don't mind the high price tag.

For truly skin-specific results, we added Glossiva Advanced. It arrives with two colors, a light and a dark, which you can mix together to match your skin color. Not only that, but you'll get cleansing oil and a pad for application, although you might find that a high-quality makeup sponge does a better job. If you need an option that contains sunscreen, try Dermablend Professional, instead. It rubs off more easily than some, but it comes in a wide variety of shades, isn't overly pricey, and is completely non-comedogenic.

Finally, if you want to skip a liquid choice altogether, there's the Tatjacket Full Sleeve. It won't match everyone's skin, but it does come in a bright white version; this will make you look like you're wearing a shirt, but without adding heat or bulk. Plus, they're reusable, although perhaps not the best for a lot of movement and physical activity, as they can slide down the arm.

Special Honors

Unique Sewing Boutique Nude Offered in a large range of sizes from 1 to 15 inches long, the Unique Sewing Boutique Nude are a mess-free way to cover up a tattoo in a flash. They're reasonably priced and completely reusable, but they'll only match light skin tones well.

Jordane Total Tattoo Cover Jordane Total Tattoo Cover dries in a flash, and is completely waterproof for all-day convenience. You'll find several color palettes to choose from, each of which is creamy and a cinch to blend onto any part of the body.
