As you age it is not just your looks that change. That brand-new, vibrant, and perfect-looking tattoo that you've just got will also fade and look old as years go by. But that doesn't mean you should just sit back and wait for your tattoo to take their toll on Mother Nature. With proper aftercare and maintenance for tattoos, you can actually make your tattoo look good for years–perhaps even forever!
Tattoos involve not only money and time, but blood, sweat and tears as well-literally! It's a dedication that begins from the moment the skin is pricked by the needle (or group of needles) And that dedication lasts a lifetime; unless, of course, you later regret your decision and get it erased by laser.
Tattooing is legally a medical procedure, although most tattooists have no medical training to think about. The way tattooing works is by pricking skin with needles to create small openings in the skin. In those tiny puncture wounds, tattoo ink is then deposited.
