Turning catastrophes into ‘masterpieces’, Mark Levitzki, owner of Skin City, has been a tattoo artist for 12 years and he’s covered up or removed many undesirable tattoos.

Skin City was started three years ago and since then Mark says he has fully established his own style.

“I’ve done around 2,000 tattoos and about 50 cover-ups. I lost track after the first thousand.”

Cover-ups and full removals are becoming more and more popular as people who were permanently inked when they were younger seek to erase the evidence of their past

Here, Mark explains how he does it.
