Sadcat95 posted a topic in General Tattoo DiscussionHey, I had this peony flower done on my right arm back in the middle of September. It’s completely black and gray, no other colors, and the artist used a very light gray for the inner petals. Because of this, my blood swelled up to the lightly shaded area almost immediately and by the time he was finished with the tattoo, it looked like a bright red flower. Of course, he assured me the red would go away and once healed the petals of the flower would be a light gray. Almost six weeks later and while the red has faded, it’s still a little pink. It’s still not black and gray. I have other pieces from the same artist which are completely black and gray, but for some reason the light gray shading on this flower isn’t working out. I also notice that if I get hot or I rub the tattoo, the shading gets a dark red again. I talked to my artist and he said he doesn’t know what exactly happened, and he doesn’t know if it the pink/red tint will ever go away. But what do you guys think? Am i stuck with a pink flower forever or will the petals eventually become a light gray by month two or something?
