The video was shared by a woman showing how her tattoo almost vanished just days after it had been applied to her face.
The text reads: “I had my face tattooed at Fort Lauderdale, and it fell off three days later.” @ratqueen412’s videoThis was almost two million times viewed.
Bruce Katz, director at JUVA Skin & Laser Center, who specializes in tattoo removal, said Newsweek There are many reasons why a tattoo might fade or disappear.
And, there are cases in which tattoo ink is not injected heavily enough––or boldly enough––into the skin, which causes the ink to break down and get carried away by the blood system before it is excreted.
Clients may also have an allergic reaction and the ink could be rejected. Katz indicated that the most allergic color to ink is red.
Healthline reported peeling is a sign that the tattoo has healed properly. However, there are other signs, such as rashes or inflammation, that can indicate that something is wrong.
According to Healthline, “All things considered, your tattoo should heal in a matter of weeks.” After this time you should not see any swelling, peeling or redness.
At @ratqueen412 is seen getting her first tattoo, on her cheekbone.
The photo taken right after the clip shows however that the tattoo is fading and patchy.
@ratqueen412 commented that her boyfriend had a tattoo. His ink also fell out.
A viewer said that she had experienced “allergy-related rejection,” but @ratqueen412 explained that it was more about how she applied the tattoo.
She said, “It was just not deep enough for him to use the needle.” It didn’t hurt, I felt practically nothing.”
Her sentiment was echoed by another viewer.
They wrote, “Probably wasn’t deep enough. Your skin healed it.” Your skin is healthy and looks beautiful so it shouldn’t surprise me.”
TikTok user @ratqueen412 has shared this tweet second video Showing that she has had her tattoos repainted.
One viewer inquired if it was necessary to let the tattoo heal before she could get the new one. She replied that she received the new tattoo within a few days of the original.
In a third video @ratqueen412 shared that she felt like the end of a pencil was “dragging on” her face when she first got her tattoo.
She said, “It’s not that painful to get a face tattoo, and I know it doesn’t hurt as much.” “So I realized he hadn’t gone deep enough.”
