14 Tattoos on the day they were made vs. nowadays

Tattoos tend to look colorful and well-defined at first, but over time, the tones become more subdued, the lines thicken, and there are details that disappear (no matter how permanent the ink is).

To verify this, various users on Reddit shared how their tattoos looked after being done and what they currently look like. The difference between some designs is so incredible that you will not believe that it is the same. However, it will help you make a better decision when you want to tattoo your skin.

1. Some details have been thickened

My newly made armored Titan and two years later.

2. The colors faded like waves
