Faded Red Ink

Recommended Posts

hi Guys.

need ur help / advise on this. I got my 1st tattoo last April, pick the wrong artist.. the result is not good. So we decided to cover up after a month with a new artist,, last May I had my cover up it come a bigger piece to cover up the old tat. 

The result was amazing, newly / fresh inked is very bright in color.. however, after 1 week following the aftercare instructions.. peel started and continue to scab, the red color, the rose started to fade.. the color under the scab is light and looks like faded, it has no red ink already. 

Is this normal? Or  part of healing process?imageproxy.php?img=&key=a107a9c0af395ecd,  eventually the color with enchance soon? Ur response is highly appreciated...

I would have waited longer than a month to do a coverup. Every time you tattoo the skin you are causing trauma. I would give it time to completely heal before you do anything else. If you have this touched up it will be the third time tattooing over the same piece of skin.

The color is unlikely to get darker, but wait a minimum of 4-6 weeks to see what it will look like.

Hi Hogrider..

Thank you. But everyday, looks like colors are fading including the black and red color.. looks bad. 

How many times the peeling process? I,ve notice large scabbing then now there is a small skin peeling.

Everybody heals differently. I've had different areas heal differently. Sometimes light peeling, sometimes heavy, sometimes twice. Again, you need to wait 4-6 weeks to see what it's going to look like and I highly recommend you wait a couple of months before any touchup. Give that skin a break.

    • Hi, I just joined to get tattoo ideas and also feedback on my current tattoo cover-up. Thanks 🙂
    • Hi everyone... sorry, I thought I'd posted here earlier. I've found this site a few times over the last year searching various topics. I've never traveled and tattooed... so I would like to.  I feel like I'm still practicing right now... I feel like I'm getting close to figuring out my own styles. I kind of just try to do my best at tattooing whatever people want.  I just want to get better at it.  
    • Just butting in... read the thread, and I couldn't really understand how you got from the inspiration images to an eagle... but it looks nice and clean. Forget the olive branch... that's just complicating the tattoo... once the clouds are in there and everything is shaded it will look impressive. Trying to change or modify the design when the agreed upon plan is in progress never ends well. I'd vote for black and grey or black grey and grey-blue... but that might change after seeing the artist's portfolio. Trust your artist... it looks like you chose the right person for your project so far.
