Hello all.

It feels silly to start a new post just for me, but hey.

I've had one tattoo for seven years, and the artist was really good, and at first the tattoo looked really awesome, I've had a major problem. Nothing to do with the artist, mind (he had almost 40 years of experience and was highly recommended). But after 7 years of very little sun, proper care when I got it, and all that jazz, my tattoo looks like a faded watercolour instead of the vibrant photo-realistic rose that it started out as. My question is if I'm just a freak of nature (permanent hair dye washes out with in a month)? Even now I get pimples that occur on the site and when they come off, there's ink in them.

    • HE'S GOT THE BUUUUUUUGGGG!!! 😁 @minisoda not sure if you've let us know who the artist is yet, but feel free to share! check out their prior work and see what they're into. if they usually do traditional colors, they might prefer to stick to that aesthetic. if they do some crazy shit, they might be open to new ideas.  i think adding an olive branch in an open talon would look a bit strange. during your next shading and color session, bounce your addition and background ideas off your artist and see what they think. in the end, you're wearing it and they're doing it, so your two opinions count way more than us shmucks.🤓
    • If it is scarring what else could it be? Could it be that the ink is too thick ??
    • Laser removal is not an eraser. You'd still faintly see the tattoo. If it is scarring, then yes, you'd still see the scar, too.
