A tattoo of someone's name is such a bad idea for so many reasons, but just because you made a mistake that doesn't mean you have to get stuck with it forever, or pay a big bill for laser surgery. Cover up tattoos are a great way to hide your mistakes if you can't erase them, and a nice but bigger picture goes a long way.

Reminds me vaguely of my best friend's dad's tattoo. He had a Pink Panther going all Captain Morgan on a toolbox with a wrench in one hand. For some reason he later decided to change it; the wrench became a Native American flute with feathers and the panther was now wearing a chieftain's headdress. I don't remember if the toolbox was changed, but it was the most godawful tattoo I've ever seen.
Another set of friends had each other's online personas tattooed on their arms. They broke up about a year or so later and it still makes me laugh. Only one of them bothered inking over theirs to modify it, although it still looks like it was drawn by a toddler in MS Paint.
About half the cover ups on the page are pretty good.
