Welcome to Redo Your Tattoo

Do you have a tattoo that you are not happy with? Let Ainslie Heilich transform it by either reworking it or covering it up fully.   He has been tattooing for well over a decade and specializes in even the most difficult challenges that other tattoo artists won’t touch.   As a co-owner of Vintage Karma in Tuscola, IL, he has a large loyal following. He has dedicated himself to providing the best tattoos in a variety of styles and people travel from states away for his work.

By necessity, other tattoo artists will often begrudingly perform coverups or reworks of existing tattoos. Often making the “improvement” fall short of the clients’ hopes or failing to effectively disguise the old tattoo. You don’t have to settle for “a little better.”  You can trust that you are in good hands.   Let Ainslie give you back a part of your body that you are not happy with.

Why a coverup?

“Tattoo removal” ointments, creams, and balms do not work and are little more that snake oil that will not lighten and potentially cause damaging scarring.

Laser removal is a lengthy (requires many sessions), costly, and extremely painful process that can cause damaging scarring and burns if performed by a undertrained technician.  *

Covering up a tattoo is quicker, cost effective, and less painful option than Laser.  It is also a way for you to express yourself through an artform that is increasingly becoming more socially acceptable.

*For someone who needs the tattoo totally gone for work, social, and personal reasons (like facial tattoos), Laser is the best recommended option.  Just make sure you find a reputable specialist.
