Why get a color tattoo?
Color style tattoo are considered to be one of the most intricate forms of self expression and creativity. Unlike black and gray tattoos, colored ink gives off a sense of brightness to your body and tells a lot about your personality, not to mention it will make a black and gray tattoo pop. Color tattoos is a lot more meticulous since spaces between the black lining are filled to get the design come to life. The end result is a piece of art that will definitely be appreciated by various people. This type of tattoo naturally draws in the crowd, so expect people to double back or stare at the sheer intricacy of your tattoo. What’s more is that having more color variations can give you the option of adding more symbolism to the tattoo itself. We have customers in the past wanting to color a certain feature of their tattoo design a certain way since it reminds them of a significant event or person in their lives. Whilst in black and gray tattoos, you are only left with one shade, so we simply are limited of the possibilities.
Things to consider when getting a color tattoo?
Color tattoos are somewhat different from that of black tattoos in terms of fading. Tattoos in general will fade over time, but colored ones tend to fade a lot faster than traditional black ink. If you’ve decided to pull the trigger with us on a custom colored tattoo, we’ll be providing you with a rundown of what you should do to keep the luster of the tattoo’s color.
Generally speaking, color tattoos tend to fade faster when exposed to sunlight. If you’re at the beach catching some rays or just hanging out with the homies out in the open, you might want to protect your tattoo the same way you would with your skin. Though the technology available for colored tattoos these days are far from the earlier ones used, there’s only so much that new color technology can do. The proper maintenance regime for colored tattoos is still your best bet to keep the color from fading rather quickly. It might be a bit more meticulous than black tattoo, but to see your color tattoo outlast pretty much the rest of the other tattoos out there is an experience you would definitely be proud of.
Another point to consider is that compared to black tattoos, colored ones require more pain tolerance since the spaces within the outline would have to be colored in. but of course, it’s a small price to pay compared to the results that you will see once we’re done with your tattoo.
