Rapper and producer Timati (Timur Yunusov) surprised fans by posting a video on Instagram showing his arms and neck without tattoos. Masters of tattoo parlors told "Klops" how a musician could get rid of body painting.
According to Irina Borisenko, master of TATTOO HAMMERS, Timati simply disguised the tattoos. For this he used a special thick foundation.
"Most likely, a foundation, it has been used in professional makeup for more than seven years, if not more," said Borisenko.
Artistic tattoo artist Maria Belyakova, in turn, added that Timati's post resembles an advertisement in which the legendary Zombie Fight starred in 2011. The body and face of the model were also completely covered with drawings, but in the video he appeared with absolutely clear skin.
According to the expert, the tattoo cannot be removed, it can only be lightened, discolored. As a rule, this procedure is done in order to make a new tattoo in its place. It will take at least a year to completely remove it.
"It all depends on many factors, pigments, depth. It is necessary to remove with a laser, it is very long and dreary. On average, it will take ten sessions. The intervals between them are at least a month," Belyakova noted.
Some tattoos cannot even be lightened - it all depends on the characteristics of the skin and the technique in which the work was performed. Also, the red color is not amenable to breeding.
