Cover Up Help

August 25th, 2011 by

Oh the lengths that people will go to in order to cash in on tattoos.  I’m not saying that I’m against the idea of helping out people with tattoos, but Long Beach, California based Tat2X has come up with a solution to a problem that shouldn’t even be a problem to begin with.

Tat2X’s latest brainwave is an arm sleeve that can be worn in order to cover up tattoo sleeves, so that people with tattoos can have fewer problems at their jobs or wherever they may be where tattoos are not appreciated.

‘Proudly made in the United States, Tat2X’s sleeve covers are designed to be cool and comfortable all day. The company offers three sizes to fit both men and women, in a range of shades to suit any skin tone. The sleeve covers offer UPF 50+ protection, which is excellent for skin cancer survivors and tattoo enthusiasts alike. In addition, they give skin cancer survivors an easy way to hide their scars and boost their confidence. The fabric is machine washable and has no internal seams that rub or chafe. The quality fabric design features gripper elastic to hold the tattoo cover in place even during the most strenuous tasks.’

Hey, if anyone knows about having to cover up tattoos in the work place, it’s me.  I did it for almost three years in Japan and it sucked royally, especially on hot days.  All I was using at the time was a tensor bandage, so it does sound decent that Tat2X is making a sleeve that is designed to be cool.  At the same time though, it is ridiculous that such products even have to exist.  It’s not Tat2X’s fault that this is the case, but the fact that they are selling a product designed to cover up tattoos strikes me as insane.  Still, I guess if you need to cover up in order to keep your job, this just might be the product for you.  Hopefully one day soon, stuff like like this will be completely unnecessary.
