The longevity of your tattoo can be greatly impacted by external factors. It’s a common problem for people to complain about a faded tattoo and not know that this potentially could’ve been avoided if the right procedures were done.
Here are some hints and tips to help you get those defined, bold tattoos you’ve always dreamt of!
Prolonged exposure to the sun can be super harmful to the longevity of your tattoo. Wear that sunscreen.
Anti-bac soap, loose clothing until fully healed, and as much as you may want to, fight the urge to scratch and pick off scabs.
3. THE RIGHT KIT.
Quality ink, quality needles. (Check out this page for more info)
4. OVER CLEANSING OR EXFOLIATING SKIN.
If you over cleanse, you are removing the protective layer of skin away too much which can cause a lot of irritation. Irritation can lead to more damaging effects to tattoos.
Consider the placement of your tattoos, some areas receive repetitive friction and therefore tattoos fade quicker, think hands, for example.
Yes, general fading is inevitable but this can be slowed or minimised by following the above 5 tips.
