Tommy had never covered a portrait with another portrait. Since this tattoo means so much, the stakes were incredibly high. he knocked Kayla's tattoo out of the park.

- ALL RIGHT, GIRL,WE'RE FINISHED.

- YES, FINALLY.

- KAYLA'S TATTOO IS ONE OFTHE MOST CHALLENGING COVER-UPS

I'VE DONE IN MY ENTIRE CAREER.

I'VE NEVER, EVER TAKEN ONA COVER-UP OF A PORTRAIT

BY DOING A PORTRAIT OVER IT.

I'M PUTTING MY ASSOUT ON THE LINE.

I COULD BE ABSOLUTELYEMBARRASSED IF IT'S A FAILURE,

SO IT'S GOT TO BE PERFECT,YOU KNOW,

AND I HOPESHE REALLY LIKES IT.

THE STAKES WEREREALLY HIGH ON THIS.

I HOPE YOU LIKE IT.

YOU CAN TAKE A LOOK.

- OH, MY GOD.

- IT'S YOUR DAD, HUH?

YOU OKAY?

- YEAH.

VERY HAPPY.[sniffles]

- AWESOME.

- IT LOOKS SO MUCH LIKE HIM.

I CAN'T REMEMBER THE LAST TIMEI REALLY SAW HIM.

I HAVEN'T SEENMY DAD'S SMILE IN FOREVER,

AND IT'S AMAZING TO SEE AGAIN.

THAT'S THE PICTUREI ALWAYS WANTED ON MY ARM,

AND I FINALLY HAVE IT.

IT LOOKS SO MUCH LIKE HIM,LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE HIM.

- IT'S PRETTY COOL, RIGHT?

LIKE, I CAUGHT ALL THE--YOUKNOW, THE HIGHLIGHT ON THE CHEEK

HERE FOR YOU AND ON HIS CHIN,SO JUST SHOWING THE STRUCTURE.

WITH KAYLA'S COVER-UP,I HAD DECIDED TO USE

A LITTLE BIT OF LINE WEIGHT

TO ACTUALLY CAMOUFLAGETHE EXISTING LINES UNDER THERE.

I ADDED A LOT MORE CONTRASTTO THE SHADING.

THIS WAY, I BUILD UP OVERTHE EXISTING SHADOW UNDERNEATH,

AND IT LOOKED BEAUTIFUL.

- [gasps] WOW.- WOW.

- I DON'T KNOW TOO MANY PEOPLETHAT COULD DO THAT, TOMMY.

LIKE, IT'S AMAZING.

WHAT A TRANSFORMATION THAT IS.- THANK YOU.

- I FEEL LIKE A WEIGHTHAS BEEN LIFTED.

TOMMY BROUGHT ME A LOTOF CLOSURE WITH MY FATHER,

AND IT'S DEFINITELY GONNABRING MY FAMILY CLOSER TOGETHER,

AND I REALLY CAN'T WAITFOR THEM TO SEE IT.

- YOU GOT MAD BALLS FOR THAT.- SO PROUD. OH, MY GOODNESS.

- TOTAL RESPECT, DUDE.- THANK YOU.

- GOD, I SUCK.

[laughter]

I HAD TO SAY IT ONCE.- I KNOW.

- YOU READY TO GET SOME SLEEP?
