Tattoo Don’ts / Won’ts
Tattoo don’ts: When it comes to finger tattoos do as we say not as we do unless you don’t care about the outcome. When you have a lot of tattoos, and you decide to go to your hands and finger you understand that they are a novelty and do not stay or look good for long.

(About two weeks) It’s important, or you will rub the tattoo off during the healing process. NO matter how good the tattooist is that does the tattoo the result is always the same.

White ink tattooed in the skin, the tattoo may end up looking like a scar. It will turn dull and fade more when bared to the strong sunlight. The chemical composition of the ink can fade when exposed to the intense light as will any tattoo ink, but white is more susceptible. Take care of your tattoos and keep them out of the sun. At the end keeping your skin out of the sun will be good for your health. Too much sun ages the skin faster and thus fades and ages the tattoo.
