Frequently Asked Questions

Questions About Watercolour Tattoos?

We’ve done our best to clarify everything below, but don’t hesitate to flick us a message if you need some more information!

What makes watercolour tattoos unique?

Watercolour tattoos are unique because they mimic the fluid and translucent qualities of watercolour paintings. This style uses vibrant colours, delicate blending, and abstract designs to create soft, ethereal effects. The lack of bold outlines in many watercolour tattoos gives them a painterly and organic look.

How long does a watercolour tattoo session last?

The duration of a watercolour tattoo session varies based on the complexity and size of the design. Smaller, simpler pieces may take a few hours, while larger and more detailed tattoos might require multiple sessions to achieve the desired effect.

Are watercolour tattoos more painful than other styles?

Pain levels depend on the placement of the tattoo and individual pain tolerance. Watercolour tattoos often involve extensive shading and colour blending, which can extend the tattooing time and potentially increase discomfort. However, the experience varies for each person.

How should I care for my watercolour tattoo during healing?

Proper aftercare is crucial to preserve the vibrant colours and details of your watercolour tattoo. Keep the tattoo clean and moisturized, avoid sun exposure, and follow the specific aftercare instructions provided by your tattoo artist. This will help maintain the integrity and brightness of the colours.

Do watercolour tattoos fade over time?

Like all tattoos, watercolour tattoos can fade over time, especially if exposed to the sun frequently or not cared for properly. The lighter and more delicate nature of watercolour tattoos makes them more susceptible to fading. Using sunscreen and regular moisturizing can help maintain the vibrancy of the colours.

What is the cost of a watercolour tattoo?

The cost of a watercolour tattoo varies based on the size, complexity, and the artist’s expertise. Generally, watercolour tattoos can be more expensive due to the detailed work and time required. For more information, check out our helpful tattoo prices guide. 

Can watercolour tattoos be combined with other styles?

Yes, watercolour tattoos can be combined with other styles to create unique and personalized designs. Elements of realism, geometric patterns, or traditional tattoo motifs can be integrated with watercolour techniques, adding depth and variety to the tattoo.

Are watercolour tattoos suitable for cover-ups?

Watercolour tattoos can be suitable for cover-ups, depending on the size and placement of the original tattoo. The vibrant colours and abstract designs can effectively obscure old tattoos. However, it’s essential to work with an experienced artist who can design a cover-up that fully conceals the previous ink while creating a cohesive new piece.

What themes are common in watercolour tattoos?

Common themes in watercolour tattoos include florals, animals, nature scenes, abstract designs, and fantasy elements. The versatility of watercolour allows for endless creativity and customization, making each tattoo unique.
