The head portion on a basic panther tattoo is often used to cover older tattoos that are in the rounded position. For unwanted tattoos that run lengthwise the crawling panther body is often an excellent option for cover-up as well. Whether prowling or crawling, the panther tattoo is a great choice for seamless cover-up of an existing tattoo.
