    Roughly 45 million people in the United States have at least one tattoo, according to the FDA.

      As more of those original young tattoo collectors attain seniority, it's not uncommon to see grandparents, great-grandparents with intricate masterpieces on their anatomy.

      So now your in the studio hearing all the tattoo machines buzzing. You have worked with your tattoo artist to create a meaningful piece of artwork that you are willing to commit to forever, and anxious to wear with pride. 

      A really important aspect of getting tattooed is how it will age. As your tattoo heals and ages the ink will spread under the dermis in the subcutaneous and slightly alter the look of your tattoo. Tattoos will fade overtime no matter what, but the sun's ultraviolet rays will cause them to fade quicker. Other factors that can contribute to tattoos fading is the way the you heal your tattoo. It is important to know how your body heals and to listen to your tattoo artist' aftercare instructions.

To prevent tattoos from dulling, it is necessary to wear sunblock on your tattoos. It is also recommended to use a moisturizer every day to prevent the skin from drying out. Wearing proper clothing that covers the tattoos is an important way to protect tattoos and keep them from fading; darker and tightly woven fabrics are ideal and offer the most protection.
