Hi. I'm totally new to tattooing I was considering getting a tattoo similar to this one https://tattoozza.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/il_570xN.800031733_f6lo.jpg 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?
optional posted a topic in General Tattoo Discussionhi 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!!
