Default My purple ink

I got my tattoo on July 30th 2017. On Sept 2nd I had my purple ribbon re touched. I loved the color and was a happy customer. Until now...the color purple has darkened so much 😭 it's also still wrinkly and shiny. my artist said there's nothing he can do. Please help!!! Pics are attached

You can't really lighten it. It still looks purple. Unfortunate that it isn't the colour you wanted but I think your best bet is to learn to love it, and don't go back to the same place again because they don't seem to know what they're doing with colours (assuming you told them what shade you wanted and didn't just say "purple" in which case... it is!)

The wrinkly and shiny might go faster if you moisturise it often. The skin does look a bit overworked though, like maybe it's a bit of scarring. All the same it should go - I know this isn't a tattoo example but I had a cat scratch on my wrist for months before it faded so there is still hope for it smoothening out.

As above, this has been overworked a fair bit, it will settle down over time(the wrinkling)

It is very dark, but purple is a very dark colour
Please go to a reputable artist.

Default Healing

I've been using aloe Vera often . Color has lightened a little bit.
