Fresh tattoo shading looking brown is normal, right?

Recommended Posts

I got my shading on my tattoo done yesterday and It looks light brown, not gray. I'm like 85% sure this is totally normal and it'll turn gray as it heals, right?

I figured I'd ask, because its either post here or study for finals.. Lol. I'm curious.

I'm really stoked to see it after 6 months when it fades, and i hope it fades nicely.

Anyway, its kinda hard to see in pics, but it is very light brown. will this change to black

/gray as it heals?

My general rule of thumb is this:

Tattoos change a bunch from the second you get it till about a month or so later when they "settle" so don't rush to judgements right away. When in doubt go to the person who put it on you, they will know best.

Also, please post in the correct section of the forum.

My tattoo did the same thing. If you look at my pics you will see the olive hinge looking brownish. It is totally gray now. I liked the brown shading so much that I am going back in tomorrow to have that "brown" shading put back in. Great tattoo by the way.

To be honest, it didnt worry me. So I didnt really pay much attention, but if I had to guess Id say three four days. Seriously, dont sweat it, it will be fine.
