Why isn’t the colour as bright or the black as dark as the day I got my tattoo?

When the tattoo is fresh, ink is located in both the dermis and the epidermis (that is, deep in the skin, and on the surface of the skin). The ink in the dermis is permanent, but the epidermis will flake off and new skin cells will replace the inked ones. Once your tattoo is fully healed, you will essentially be seeing your design through a thin layer of fresh skin.
