There isn't really a good paint to go over tile. Adhesion is the problem...tile, especially gloss tile is like glass...paint doesn't adhere to glass very well. There may be some epoxies that work, but they are hard to work with and expensive. Tear out the tile and put in new. ALTHOUGH...that looks like vinyl tile! No grout joint? You may be able to use a floor paint...but it is even easier and cheaper to get rid of than ceramic floor tile. Peel it off, tear out the underlayment...generally much stapled particle board...bang down any staples that stay behind. Put in a new floor system.
