grades of ink used by tattoo artists? I have had tattoos done at 3 different venues, most recently i've had one from a place i used years ago, and it seems that both tattoos done by this parlour wore away and took much longer to heal. Any ideas anyone?
Hi, guys, this isn't technically a medical question... but does anyone know if there are different?

I'm not sure if they use different grades of ink,but i got my first tattoo 5years ago and my second 2 half years ago,both are still like they were just done,they have'nt faded,but they are not coloured ones. I have a friend who got hers done in a different place and had to get in redone due to it fading after a month.
The man that done mine told me that he worked in a shop before going out on his own and the place would water down the ink to get longer use of the ink,but that the tattoos they done,people would come back to have them redone within no time,that is why he left that shop and went alone,he is very dedicated and professional,where he said they people he previously worked for,lost alot of business due to people coming back complaing that their tats were not lasting.
I dont know if this place is the same where you got your's done,but what he told me came to mind when i read your post..
Maybe others will have different answers for you but it makes sense if they water down the ink.
Well considering I have 3 and my exhuband has over 100 (he does tatoos on himself) and others there can be several resonses for fading and slow healing happening. 1 medications you are on or consumption of alcohol controls blood thinning and healing. 2. If it isn't deep enough in the skin or your body can't hold specific color depends on skin tone since I am very fair toned I can't hold many colors like my ex who is more tanned. 3 what you aply to it for moisture can draw ink from the skin.4. If the ink is to old doesn't hold. Believe it or not the sun can fade it as well. So it may nt be the tatoo artist fault. I know a guy who drank really heavy got his first tatoo bled heavy his whole tatoo diasapeared like it was diapearing ink that'll tic you off lol good luck hope its a nice one try different colors maybe. Just curious What did u get it of ?
