How Should Jill Abramson Cover Up Her Times Tattoo?
New York Magazine ^ | Katie van Syckle

Posted on 05/16/2014 3:13:54 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Not only does Jill Abramson have to endure speculation about her departure from the Times, she also has to live with the question of what will happen to her tattoo of the signature T logo.

In the spirit of solutions, the Cut asked several tattoo artists across north Brooklyn how Abramson could conceal it. “If I was her, I’d [get] a really nice tattoo from some famous artist where I had a piece of his artwork that would also work as a cover-up,” says Gavan Daly of Williamsburg’s Magic Cobra Tattoo Society. “Cover-ups suck. You are erasing a bad memory—your racist, nightmare husband that you were married to, or some other bad connotation.”

Cover-up tattoos are typically two to three times the size of the original tattoo — and artists encourage people to think about fish, feathers, or petals. “The thing about a cover-up is you don't want to make it look like cover-up,” Daly says. “You want to draw the eye away from it or disguise it as the intentional dark piece.” Click through our slideshow for four local artists' suggestions for how Abramson could cover her Times tattoo.

The SS always had their blood type tattooed under their arms. I suppose this is similar to that, or is it the mark of the beast?

To make a suggestion, I’d need to know exactly where and how large said tat is. A photo would help.

He has a giant ant tattooed on top of his head. What is his big dream? Finding a job that doesn’t make him wear a hat all day long. ‘Because hats are hateful, and I want everybody to celebrate my Yul Brenner’ chrome dome.

I can’t believe this woman had her employer’s Logo tatooed on her back, there is something very sick about that.

I’m not seeing a problem here. They do call it “The Old Grey Lady”, right?

I have a million of them.

She should go on the Tattoo Nightmare show and talk about why she wants to get it covered up.

Actually she should have Obama’s face put over it. Given she’s spent her career at the times covering for him!
