Touchup time frame

Recommended Posts

If i wanted to edit some bits of the tattoo how many months/years would be considered too long that it would effect the tattoo one artist told me 2 years is this correct. Btw tattoo is 6 months old

it's never too late to touch up or rework a tattoo IMO.

I had a 15yo tattoo reworked recently and it rocks again,even better than it did.

and btw,6mo is barely healed.

I thought it was healed after 4.. Also why did my tattoo artist say something about having a 2 year time frame after that it shouldnt be touched ?

You should be healed enough after 4-6 weeks for touch-ups. 

I have never heard anyone put a ceiling on touch-up or re-work with respect to time frame. Obviously, your options on same will be somewhat limited based on the eventual and natural fading and/or spreading of the ink in your derm.

Every time I am with my tattoo artist, he touches up his other work. I end up leaving with several fresh sections!

Will it heal back to natural colour after time?  my tattoo is text based could this be why?

It's nothing to do with the content of the tattoo. Listen to Dan. He speaks the truth.

Are there drop-outs? My first had a few and the artist retouched about three months later. One other had a line section disappear in just weeks. She re-did it while adding color fill and it all looks great now.

My artist has me wait 30 days in between sessions on one tattoo. Going in Monday to finish the work my flag. That was done about five weeks ago. In the process of having a half sleeve dragon done to cover a 20 year dragon that had grown tired over the years. Having to wait 30 days before the next session on the dragon.
