In the featured image above, you can see that the likes of American Traditional and New School tattoo styles are both ideal in color, as are Japanese and Neo Traditional among others. Reference tattoo artist profiles to find a style that you prefer, and consider how it works with color.

How Dedicated You Are to Longterm Tattoo Care

Color tattoos are more vulnerable to UV exposure over time. Tones that were once vibrant can appear to fade more and “blend in” with your natural skin tone when compared to blackwork. To protect the integrity of a color tattoo, you must be prepared to care for your tattoo throughout life. Of course, we understand that it’s easy to take the foot off the pedal as years pass. Consequently, you will find peace of mind in having a color tattoo as long as there is a tattoo shop that does touch ups near you.
