How to brighten up an old tattoo?
Use Exfoliating Gel to Refresh Your Old Tattoo – Sometimes, gently sloughing off the dull top layer of dead skin can help refresh an old tattoo. For this, I like Aftershock exfoliating gel, which has natural alpha-hydroxy acids derived from grapes, lemons, pineapple, and passion fruit.
- This amazing ink rejuvenator gel will assist with removing old, dull, dead skin that has grown on any aging tattoo;
- This miraculous gel will brighten up your ink but needs to be used with caution;
- Leave it on your ancient tattoo for about 5 to 15 minutes and let the natural alpha-hydroxy acids do their magic on the top dead layers of dead skin;
Although this gel has immediate results, to continue to enjoy those benefits, you will need to incorporate the practice into your monthly routine.

How to get rid of dead skin on a tattoo?
Tattoo Touch-Ups and Color Rejuvenations – Touch-Ups. When a tattoo reaches a certain condition, no amount of exfoliating gel can bring it back to life. This is when an appointment with a talented artist could be the answer. Your fossil of a tattoo could be re-outlined again with a solid, crisp black line.
- This would enhance its clarity and give the tattoo artist the opportunity to add some detail back, especially in those areas of the design that are small and complex that have lost their detail because the ink has spread;
Portraits and designs that include faces can benefit highly from some touch-up work. Color Rejuvenation. The colors are usually the first thing in a tattoo to show wear. Re-coloring faded tattoos that have maintained their outlines can make them current again. Body suit on lady, Inked women. Tattoo aftercare helps keep these looking good.

INK-EEZE calls it Cucumber Lavender and it smells pretty damn good in my opinion. It’s light, fresh, and clean, but isn’t too strong or overbearing. Overall I would say it’s pretty gender neutral — it works well for both men and women.
• Skin beneficial ingredients One of the things that I always like about INK-EEZE’s products is that they are formulated with a bunch of unique, skin beneficial ingredients that you don’t commonly see in other similar products.

That’s why I like Ink Enhance Lotion. It has a very smooth, creamy, and lightweight consistency that absorbs into the skin quickly, and dries really fast. It also doesn’t leave any greasy or oily residue behind — a big plus in my book.
