I have heard that tattoo covering makeup and makeup style paint to cover tats are quite expensive and might not even come in a shade close to the skin tone. Can't you photoshop it out? If not then don't shot models with tats. As a model with tattoos I understand not working with me because of my tats, or asking for something to cover it up (which I did recently in a shoot)
As a photographer, I choose tattooed or non tattooed llamas depending on the job. Photoshop or makeup, having a tattoo much bigger than a bumblebee on your big toe is a big enough PITA that I'd rather just move on. There are lots of llamas out there.
Easier to Photoshop a tattoo ON than OFF. Much easier.

I have the temptu dura palette in skin tones ... I love the alcohol activation palettes since the makeup stays put no matter the situation but it's impossible to blend or maybe there's a trick I don't know of. I find real good non cakey looking tat coverage to be extremely hard. I have to do it tomorrow for a wedding and dreading it!! Any tips is GREATLY appreciated
It's not just the product that covers said tattoo, it's absolutely the application. It's just plain hard work and there is no set steps to follow because each tattoo is quite different...even when just black or grey work.
I find from researching this, I like airbrush the best. Here is 2 short videos that will show you the steps in canceling out the colors from tattoo ink.
