When you get yourself tattooed, it might look awesome in the start! You would not have imagined of how it would look as you age.
There are multiple reasons due to which the appearance of a tattoo changes over a period of time. Commonly, the type and quality of ink plays a major role; as cheaper ink tends to fade away over time. Also, the color of the ink has a role to play, as lighter colors fade faster.
Based on where you have got yourself tattooed, it might have an impact on how fast it fades. If you have a tattoo on your feet or fingers, which are involved in a lot of activity daily, it might fade faster than a tattoo on your back.
If you stick to the healing procedures as mentioned by tattoo parlors, the tattoo will look fresher for a longer period. Also, avoid touching your tattoo often as it might result in infection or discoloration. If it is exposed in the Sun for long, you should apply the highest SPF sunscreen.
“When I had decided to get the tattoo done, I knew that the area was not ideal and that the tattoo would fade at some point. I made a point to follow the aftercare instructions “to a T”. My expectation was that I would have this tattoo for longer than a week.”
