You mentioned in one of your posts that you generally use grey/black or grey/brown ink tones. I understand that they will fade over time but does the fading change the remaining pigment to a slight blue tone. This is the type of thing you see with tattoos that use black ink which generally fade to a blue tone over time. Or does the ink hold its colour integrity over time? Thanks
All pigments deposited under the skin will turn blue/ green over time. The time frame that this happens is within a week to a month (not years). And the blue I am referring to is nothing like the blue in this post, it is a black color with a tinge of blue to it.
Any claim that it does not is a marketing gimmick as the human body will react with the pigment as well as the layer of overlying skin will alter the perception of color. For example your red blood vessels will look green under your skin but the green you see is an absorption issue because these blood vessels contain red blood, yet these blood vessels don’t look red under the skin. There is actually a paper written on this topic HERE.
The green /blue that some may think of (or you may be referring to) are the old pigments or cheap brands that oxidize and actually change color dramatically. The green/ blue I’m referring to is generally not noticeable unless you have a keen sense of color. If the SMP pigment is high quality and the person applying them is experienced you should not have this issue. The best and ultimate test is to physically see a SMP patient up close in person. Don’t rely on advertisements or photos.
