Tattoo fade or distortion

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have tattoos that have faded or become a bit distorted over time because they are located on crease lines on the wrist or elbow? How often are touch ups usually needed in these areas?

tattoos go through many stages while healing,and they take months to heal,they will never look like the day you had it put on,EVER again.I have both knees and both wrists and both elbows covered and they do not look any different than my other tattoos.even after years,

after the healing is done,

1)keep it out of the sun or use sunblock forever. 

2)keep daily lotion like aveeno on them forever.

    • I got this about a year ago. It’s my childhood house! It’s my first real piece and I assumed that when I got it people would give me sorts of compliments or general comments or say anything about it! But that hasn’t really been the case. But I’m super curious what people think!   What do you guys think about it? What do you like? What do you dislike? What do you think about the style?   What has been your experience with tattoos and other people? Do you find that people generally don’t really ask about them? Or when they do they’re pretty neutral?
    • @Kassan0va If your tattoo is red and painful, go see a doctor!
