As you gain weight and your skin stretches your tattoo will stretch with it. Depending on how much weight you gain this can distort the tattoo. Tattoos on areas like the stomach and thigh will distort more than areas like the back. If you lose the weight your tattoo will return to its original size.
You keep cling film on a tattoo for the minimum amount of time possible. It’s there to keep your tattoo safe and clean until you get home and have chance to start your aftercare regime. If you keep the cling film on you run the risk of an infection starting in the damp warm conditions under it.
Weigh loss of a few pounds won’t have affect your tattoo. If you lose a significant amount of weight it will change the tattoo and you may lose small details. If you have a lot to lose it may be wise to wait. Location of the tattoo also makes a big difference to how it will look after weight loss.
The Tattoo Pain Chart – Female tattoo pain map, shows you the best and worst places to get tattooed. The ribs are the worst place and the shoulder is the least painful place to get tattooed for a female. The shoulder and outer thigh are also relatively less painful places for a woman to get a tattoo.
Does the outline of a tattoo hurt more? Many people find that the outline of a tattoo is the most painful part. It can be a sharp dragging sensation that can be hard to handle. Take comfort in knowing that once the outline is completed you will probably find that the shading is less painful.
Dotwork tattoos are viewed as one of the least painful types of tattoo. The precise, delicate dots used to build up an image do not drag the skin and therefore cause less pain. Getting a dot work tattoo in a low pain location such as back of the shoulder will mean a relatively less painful tattoo.
A healed tattoo will look less bright than when it was fresh. This is because a layer of skin has grown over it as it heals and is normal. During healing, a tattoo can look dull and faded as the skin regenerates. After 8 weeks it should have reached final colour. If it’s still faded you can fix it.
