Can you put another coat of wood over top like a veneer?

Some sort of decorative cover? When folks have a tattoo that they no longer want, sometimes, the solution is to tattoo right over the unwanted art to create NEW art that is desirable.

Another possibility would be to use a furniture repairman to disguise it. Cost you some bucks, but if it’s offensive, might be worth it. With patience and good materials, it could be blended in to near invisibility.

You’ve gotta be kidding. Ya gotta really wonder what some people use for brains at times.

The only thing I can suggest is more sanding. Good luck.
