blowjobs-for-satan asked: Hi, your blog is literally everything I've been looking for! So if i were to get colored tats, would i need to get them re colored often?

nooo, if your artist works color well with your skin tone there wont be any need for that. the color shouldnt fade and only need to retouched just like a regular tattoo many years later.

ohyoumeanthisbomb-poussey asked: How well do you think a water color tattoo would show up on a medium shade of black? I really want on my my thigh but I'm afraid to spend the money if it's not gonna be very visible...

talk to the artist: as long as your artist has done one on your skin tone and knows you should be fine. i’ve asked artists and it can be done and show up.
