Longivity ?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I need some help with the longivity of different styles !

I am deciding between a sleeve in a japanese style (se picture) and something more american traditionl pic 2 and 3 (roses, birds, snakes etc.). Now, tattoos will become blurry and fade over time, but do you think this japanese style (with fine lines, details etc.) will still look good in say 10 - 20 years (avoiding sun, taking care of it etc.).

Thanks a lot guys :)

I believe it has more to do with the artist than the style. Someone with good technique can do any style and make it last. Still, I would think a fine line tattoo would look aged sooner than a bold American traditional or Asian. Bold colors, thick lines, etc.

And all tattoos fade eventually.

Thanks for the replys ! yes, it is very different from other asian tattoos, I would not get this exact one, but something in that style, I like the mystic of it. I like that it is not like all the other Japanese tattoos ! I would make the images in mine more readable though. 

So you think this style would become blurry fast ? even if it's a good artist ? 

Kind reg

Well, it looks blurry and unreadable on that guy's arm already. I'd go for something with more open skin. But it'll be up to the artist.

I can’t read that top one as a print, let alone applied to skin. All tattoos definitely do blur and fade over time, but a well made tattoo will acquire character as it ages while a poorly done one will turn into a blob.

Rather than deciding on a STYLE based on longevity, get the style you want and then a DESIGN that will last. I've seen some American traditional pieces that look like a hot mess.

That I will take to heart, great idea !! Thanks a lot 🙂

BTW, Zanctuary is a site of temporary tattoos. Most cost $14.00. My advice - research real tattoos and plan to spend a lot more than $14.00.

I know, already bought this and tried it on and I like it. 

As I've said, I will not be getting this exact tattoo. I like the style.

But it is not really a "'style." It is just a muddy temporary tattoo. Go to a real tattoo artist and talk to them.

this example (in a real tattoo) would not wear well,it will be a muddled  black blob in 2 years,

"bold will hold"

like this on my thigh and on the back of my neck,

bold well saturated colors and blacks,and solid well defined  bold outlines, that's what has longevity.
