    Does anyone know of a good makeup for covering tattoos? Something that wont rub off on clothes and will cover black tattoos.. any help is greatly apreciated.

    Kryolan stage makeup - they make a fleshtone color "Dermablend"
    works well. Can be mixed to become somewhat smudge resistant...

    The current Ben Nye catalog has a good "recipe" and instructions for it, demonstrated. I think the instructions and photos are also posted on the web somewhere. Hope this helps.

    M.A.C.'s studio finish is a great concealer, but it sure didn't work on my tattoos, but I had to try it. Go with stage makeup.

    But what am I talking about? Sith don't need to cover up their tattoos!
