Color Selection Guidelines
Best Color for Your Complexion
The challenge with the color selection process is that your skin tone influences the final color appearance of the tattoo once it is placed on your body. Selecting the optimal colors for your complexion may take a few tries with different colors.
Best Color for the Setting
Do you want a color that stands out during a dimly-lit romantic encounter or one that is more subtle for a doctor’s visit under glaring light? Many users prefer different colors for different settings or clothes.
Users have commented that the darker colors are best for subdued lighting situations when you want to make a strong visual impact. For example, darker colors striking under lacy lingerie in these settings.
Lighter ones are usually desired when wearing light-colored clothing. The lighter ones seem to fade away in dim light, but are more pleasing in a glaring light.
Choosing a Color to Offset Scars
Darker-colored tattoos create more of a focal point on the breast mound, which often reduces the appearance of surrounding scars. Especially in the initial healing stages when scars are more pronounced, you may want to consider colors that are darker than your scars — even if they seem stark at first.
Judging the Appearance
Since the tattoos are most often applied in the bathroom near the sink, your first glimpse will be in a bright light. It is important not to judge the color selection in that light. Wear them a couple of days and see how they look in different settings. They tone down after the first day. It is best to keep them well-powdered to tone down the initial stark color.
The darker colors will certainly seem too stark at first in the glaring light of the bathroom mirror, but may be preferred in some of the settings described above. Also, some colors that look reddish at first will tone down after a day.
