Do Vitamin C or Niacinamide Fade Tattoos???

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I got a tattoo on my upper arm a few months ago, and (I think because of sunscreen) had a lot of bad inflammatory acne on it. The acne itself has pretty much gone away, but it left behind some unfortunate scarring. Does anybody know if vitamin C or Niacinamide will make the tattoo fade? I'm trying to fade the scars without altering the tattoo itself, and I know that vitamin c and niacinamide are pretty good for fading acne scars. 

If anyone knows of anything else that fades acne scars without fading the ink I would love to know about it. Thank u so much ❤️

no , vitamin C or Niacinamide will not fade a tattoo,the only thing that fades tattoos is time and the sun.

    • Hey Wsda! First of all congrats on your new tattoo! What did you end up getting? Second, friction can affect a tattoo overtime. That's why things like finger, palm, and sometimes ankle can feet tattoo are prone to fading much more quickly. There will be a lot of things that can cause your tattoo to fade, and no matter what it will fade with age. I don't think the arm sleeve would hurt it any more, but I wouldn't obsess with it too much. Just take care of it, keep it and your self hydrated and moisturized, and remember you can always get it touched up in the years to come!
    • Hey 😊  I’m Holly a tattoo lover from Edinburgh, Scotland. Was a member of this forum a few years ago and am back looking for some advice! 
    • So I recently got a tattoo on my inner right forearm, and I am a pretty big PC gamer, playing many hours a day. I tend to drag my arm over my mouse pad for mouse movements, and am worried about how it will affect my tattoo? Should I worry? I am thinking of buying an arm sleeve later on when my tattoo fully heals to prevent the direct contact between the tattoo and mousepad. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
