Sometimes, for one reason or another, a tattoo may require some re-inking. If you think your tattoo needs some extra work, return to the tattooist and for his or her's educated opinion. Most are willing to redo faded or unset work for free unless you have obviously picked and peeled the tattoo right off your body.
Once you have been re-inked, you will need to follow the same rules for postoperative care that you did the first time around: keep it clean, moisturized, avoid soaking it and stay away from the sun and surf.
