Do Watercolor Tattoos Fade Easily?
Ah, that’s right. Whether watercolor tattoos will fade or blur as they age is the million-dollar question. So what is the general consensus?
There will be fading and aging of all tattoos. Regardless of the style or color of a tattoo, time marches on, and tattoos with black outline do not affect a person’s aging process. Colored tattoos will lighten and soften over time, while black tattoos will become thick, gray, and fuzzy.
Watercolor tattoos have the unique ability to appear as if they have been painted on.
This technique can be interpreted in a number of ways; some use black ink and linework, while others emphasize blended hues as the focal point.
It is also possible to make your design meaningful for you by incorporating images into your design. The butterfly and hummingbird may represent beauty, transformation, and hope, respectively, for those who have overcome obstacles.
It is important to note that although this style has many advantages, there are also some disadvantages. It is common for watercolor tattoos to fade much faster than regular tattoo ink due to their complexity and different shades.
