Ive googled quite a bit on the subject and just cant seem to find any direct answers to questions about touching up tattoos. Granted, alot that I did find did touch on the subject of touchup within 2-6months after the initial work; but this doesnt help my situation as my tattoo is 6yrs + My tattoo is not detailed, I made sure of that as I am sure in 20-50 years things might shift a bit and detail would be lost...however it is very colorful. Lots of large solid color areas. Which look "bangin" when really bright. While this tat is on my spine its difficult for me to get a real direct look at it. However, common sense tells me that over the years (i.e. the rest of my life) it will fade and the colors would need to be overdone to bring out the bangin' brightness. Does anyone have any comments or experiences with tattoo retouching on older tats? As in, tats not done in the last couple of years. On a side note, getting the tat on my spine from top to bottom...somewhere in the middle of my back a nerve must have died cuz I have this "numb" area ever since. Kinda neat.
