Chances are that your tattoo is peeling. So for a week or so it will look like it is peeling off or fading. But after that it will look just fine. Here's a tip to help prevent fading and peeling. Take a small (pea sized) dab of lotion (non scented) and rub it on your tattoo 2-3 times a day. If you put too much lotion on, it will peel even more.
