As late as the Renaissance, surgeons were referred to as Mister, while the “ doctors” ministered as priests, never touching blood.

It is unavoidable that tattoos, both in color and black, will fade over time. However, with proper care, tattoo fading can be prevented by following some simple tips. “Like every other part of your body, tattoos age as well,” says Dr. Michael Diaz, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Florida. “Unlike injectable fillers, tattoo inks are permanent and exposed to all the elements that our skin is subjected to such as environmental conditions, sun damage and loss of elasticity.

Removing tattoos through lasers may lead to a discolored patch of skin that can be more visible as we age.”
