What Will It Look Like a Few Years from Now?
All tattoos will fade over time and some types of tattoos are more prone to fading than others. The lighter colours of water colours and pastels will fade faster than the darker pigments like black or grey.
Some styles may fade faster than others. Geometric designs use a lot of dots and clean lines. These can be more susceptible to damage from wear and tear, rubbing against clothes and even a tattoo over a joint where there can be a lot of stretching will be impacted over time. Additionally, weight gain or lose will affect the body art long-term.
Most importantly, care during the healing phase, aftercare regime and sunlight are by far the biggest influences of how good tattoos look in years to come.
