Colour tattoos are full colour pieces lined with black and also shaded. There are 2 main types of colour design. 

1) Old style traditional tattoos, using block colour and no tones. 

2) Color shading to obtain subtle color merging. 

Color tends to fade if subjected to intense or long-term regular sun exposure as the skin cells, which hold the pigment molecules are damaged by UV rays and removed by the body system. 

It can be retouched if necessary and without much sun exposure looks good for many years. 

All colours are dermatological tested pigments but those with known allergies should request an allergy test prior to the application of a colour tattoo.
