  1. Hi. I'm totally new to tattooing I was considering getting a tattoo similar to this one but then I was told that watercolor tattoos start looking really bad once they healed. is it true? do you have some experience with watercolor tattoos?
  2. hi all Sorry, I'm sure this has been brought up in the forums many times before, but I did a search and couldn't find the relevant info...soooo, I got a tattoo two days ago that I'm not happy with. My fault; I didn't really think it out well enough. But it's a large tattoo covering my shoulder/upper arm, and quite dark with lots of shading. I am positive that I don't like it, and would like to fade it to the point where I could possibly do a cover up in the future. I feel time is of the essence right now, since the first couple days really makes or breaks a new tattoo...if I intentionally sat in the sun without sunblock for a couple hours a day for the next week, would this help fade the tattoo? Or just make it blister-y and worse? Other people have suggested soaking it in hot water...but would this distort the tattoo in addition to pulling out the ink? I have 8 tattoos already, so I'm not just panicking - I realize it looks darker now than it will later on...but I already know that it's not what I want, and I really want to fade it. And I feel I should do it now, while it's still new. I just want to make sure I fade it evenly, and not distort it or make it blotchy, which would be a headache... If anyone has any suggestions it would be much appreciated! Thank you!!
