I have two, but I'm actually going to get a 3rd today, I'll show them all when I get back from it.

A few hours after getting it, I take off the bandage and clean it with some warm water then apply the a & d crap in a light coat, because the ink is so fresh too much can cause it to seep out. Then after that its just a & d a few times a day to keep it from drying up to quickly, and at night I run some warm water over it.

Honestly, it really doesn't matter what you do to it, as long as all the scabs fall off naturally then you will be fine. My most recent tattoo, a few of the scabs got ripped off by my work shirt, and I have spots in it now.

Here's my newest. Got it done yesterday. Took about 2 hours, it wraps all the way around my leg, and holy shit does going over the shin hurt. My father past away about 8 years ago, and this is his wedding band, I love the way it came out.

Good choice. I love memorial tats that are a little different.

Definitely. Most I see are the "In Loving Memory" then the date. Don't get me wrong, those mean a lot to that person, but I wanted something different and I didn't want writing, so I chose this. The artist that did it said that the gray wash (the shading) will lighten up quite a bit once it's completely healed.

Probably just fading over time. I know what you're talking about though, pretty much every older guy I've seen with tattoos, they have that green tint to them, most likely its from the ink getting old along with it fading.

A lot of fading is caused by the sun and lack of maintenance of the tat. Sunscreen and lotion are suppose to be used to keep them nice.
