    Post a photo of it, dark tattoos usually have to be coloured up with predominantly black designs.

    Either what TF says or have a look into having some laser work done to reduce the darkness of it.

    last time i was being tattoo'd i was told theres some "stuff" (i believe thats the technical name for it lol) that you can have tattoo'd on to an old tattoo and it helps to break down the pigments and fade/ remove the tattoo with little scaring, then you can tattoo over the top once its faded enough or been removed. personally ive not seen it done or the results of it being done so i cant tell you to go that way for it

    go on post a piccy, weve all got something that didnt go 100% perfect or has aged badly
