why does my new tattoo look faded

A COMMON MISCONCEPTIONP Many individuals with fresh tattoos are often faced with faded color shortly after getting inked. And although most are likely informed of the basic dos and donts of tattoo care, we find many dont realize that once the scabs fall off, the skin underneath is not fully healed. In fact, tattoos in this stage of the healing process typically need one to three more days to fully heal, and its this not quite healed skin that can make the tattoo look faded
Well explain. When your scabs come off, they reveal a layer of dead skin. Just like when you get sunburned and your skin peels, you get that whitish, faded out, hazy look over your new tattoo. That skin will then peel back showing your tattoos true colors. Once that happens you would assume your tattoo has finished healing, right?


Not quite. The top may be healed but underneath is not. A tattoo is basically a scar with ink in it. And those scars can take up to a year to heal, so even though your tattoo is healed to the touch it is still healing below. GET THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS: VITAMIN E AND LAVENDERP Two ingredients that are very good for your new tattoo after it has finished healing are Vitamin E and Lavender Oil. Vitamin E is an antioxidant. Its action is enhanced by ascorbic acid and selenium. It protects polyunsaturated fats in the body from oxidation, maintains the integrity of Vitamin A in the body and promotes normal clotting of blood. Its levels in the body are dependent on proper levels of zinc.


VITAMIN E:P LAVENDER OIL:P Is used to treat acne, bruises, cuts, burns, sunburn, inflammation (even though it is not really anti-inflammatory), psoriasis, sores and wrinkles You can find these ingredients in. Now you can be dedicated and take care of your inkvestment and your tattoo will look great for years to come. Stage Three в Tattoo Still Looking Dull Cloudy Nearly there! You've made it to the third and final stage of the healing process. By this point, pretty-much all of your scabs and areas of flaky skin will have dropped off (although a few of the heavier scabs may still be hanging around - excuse the pun). The tattooed area will most-likely be slightly dry still and a little sore/sensitive to the touch.


Continue to moisturize whenever your skin starts to look/feel dry. Throughout this stage your tattoo will continue to look slightly cloudy, dull and scaly в it can even look a bit glossy/shiny in the light at the same time. There is typically still a very fine dead layer of skin over the tattoo at this stage, but this will naturally flake away over the next month or two until your skin has completely regenerated back to normal в the clarity and beauty will return when your brand new skin reaches the surface. This is the perfect time to check your tattoo over for any problems such as patchy spots, fading, or any that may have occurred during the tattooing procedure. You can then contact your artist to arrange a touchup.
