    I use to have a lip-stick Kiss on my right shoulder blade, this was done about 30 years ago (god that makes me feel old) but about five years ago it got to the point where you couldn't even make out that it was there and as you can see in my photos, it has now been covered (not that there was anything left to cover) but yes Dragons right every red I have had has faded pretty damn fast, unless it is a really deep red like on my "Mum/Dad" tribute

    My buddy is alergic to red ink....even non-red colors with a little bit of red in it. So you gotta watch that.

    Sunscreen is an essential tool for every person who had tattoos. I should be applied every single time before and during exposure to sun light (even cloudy days) to prevent fading. Only use all natural sunscreen, The others are know to cause cancer.

    I'm not sure what shade you're planning, but I would suggest a deeper red. I have red lines in my pin up tattoo and it's just as bright today as it was a year ago. Though, my skin holds color really well (I still have white lines from 3 years ago.)

    YIp - Have a look on my profile, what it looks like to have a reaction to red....My skin rejects Intense red and Star bright...Classic Red takes well.......depends on the Brand more then the colour it self mate

    Very true, It is not so much the color of the ink, but the quality of the ink and your own body. I have had some people that can take anything you put in their skin and others that their bodies reject almost everything that is put in them. Most of the inks out their are very legit. But it is all dependent on what the artist spent on their set and how old they are. For your tatto go with a deep red and you should not have a problem accepting it. I have noticed that lighter shades of red will fade out faster, but then again that is all dependent on how well you take care of your tattoo and how well you listen to the advice of the artist.

    My skin doesn't seem to take the red ink well. I have have to have my new tats redone several times where we used red ink. Any other color has been fine. Good luck
