This is just a general question about this piece on my arm.

With such fine detail do you think this will look like a blob in years to come? I live for today not the future so I don’t care really either way, just wanted to hear your thoughts?

I asked Dmitriy and he said it should still look perfect. He even got a couple of guys round that he did 6 years ago with fine details and colour to show that they were still exactly the same, which they were.

Even if it did fade to a blob, I can have it reworked again by him or filled in black and then something else added over the black?

Cheers

Get it, personally i love the thought of my tattoo’s looking really faded and shit when i am older. I see a lot of old guys with all there arm’s inked up and it look’s fucking awesome.


Are you going to bark all day little doggy or are you going to bite?

Nope… you don’t get anything over black, but if your blob bothers you in 30 years you can of course laser the entire arm and get a new one 🙂

You think it will last 30 years? I would be happy with 5-10 lol

I didn’t know you couldn’t go over black? Couldn’t I use white?

Hopefully lasering will be cheaper then I dread to think what it would cost to laser my whole arm now lol

I think it’ll be a nice faded blob in 30 years, yes 🙂

My understanding is that absolutely nothing can cover black. Black is the darkest color, and will absorb all lighter colors. White, incidentally, is the worst color in the world to tattoo, since it’s fade time is measured in months instead of years.

Hmmm that doesn’t sound good lol seeing as this piece has a lot of white in it………..

You said yourself you’re not too bothered about it blobbing and, to be honest, it’s such an epic piece that it seems well worth the trade off to me

Yep I am not bothered really just thought it might last longer than a few months lol

Wanted to see what my options were if and when the time comes 🙂

Well, keep the thing well protected and out of the sun, and you may see a much longer lifespan. 🙂

I am hopefully doing that 🙂

Just a shame such a nice piece has to disappear so quickly…

Better start saving for laser lol

You seem to be awfully worried about the future of your tattoo, for one that only lives in the now 😉

This is why I’m in 2 mind about whether to get a detailed sleeve or just stick with traditional bold stuff. Ah well, in 30 years i’ll be 62 and wrinkled… who cares.

I plan on be getting detailed work for the next decades (as opposed to getting it all done within the span of a few years). Hopefully some of it will still look good when my skin had morphed into leather 😀
