Welcome to Twisted Tattoo in San Antonio, TX, where we specialize in tattoo coverup and removal services. We understand that life is constantly in motion, and our tattoos are often a reflection of that journey. Sometimes, that journey leads us to a place where we need to cover up or remove a tattoo.

At Twisted Tattoo, we understand that life changes and the tattoos received in the past may not represent the same values and beliefs we have today. That’s why we offer professional, high-quality coverup and removal services. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff can help you find the solution that works best for you.

Twisted Cares Mission Statement

The most important thing for anyone who has made a mistake is to be able to learn from it and move past it. But what about when those mistakes are permanently marked on our bodies? Whether it’s joining a gang, falling into criminal activity, becoming a victim of human trafficking or self-harm, or even due to the effects of certain cancers, everything leaves a mark. We started doing this over five years ago, and only had one goal, which is to erase hate free of charge by covering up gang-related and racist tattoos. Everyone at Twisted Tattoo has donated their time and supplies completely free of charge for the previous five years.

We have also expanded our outreach beyond laser removal of hateful tattoos to also include disguising self-harm scars, helping local homeless and needy children with food and clothing donations, 3D areola reconstruction for cancer survivors, and donating to various charities including Brighton Center, Wounded Warriors, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, and more.

At the end of the day, we are artists. We are not doctors saving lives — however, we are able to help save people from their past by removing or covering up those marks.
