Darkened Tattoo


Sprinkles

Recommended Posts

So I got this done back in April/March of this yr and it turned dark. At first I thought sun exposure but my thigh did the same thing in parts. Does anyone know what I can do to help? I’m hoping in time it’ll heal better 

the first image is what it look like the day after and the second is now.

yep, the background and teeth, too. that's a strange one . . . have you asked the artist about it? 

Yeh I asked her and she’s not too sure either. Called it hyperpigmentation but wasn’t sure how or why it happens

I have a few spots in tattoos that kinda look this way, often in light blue. I was talking with an artist about it and they said it often happens when you mix white in to lighten a color and then the white discolors (which we all know happens). Nothing you can do, but honestly it doesn’t look bad. I wouldn’t sweat it. As your tattoo ages you won’t notice every little imperfection anyhow.
