    Hello.

    Tatoo's are thought to be permanent. To exist for eternity. However a tattoo is ink pushed beneath the skin with a needle. Should ink the shade of a skin be pushed beneath, would this cover an existing tattoo? Would the tattoo become invisible? Cease to exist?

    It has been tried, with varying degrees of success. The darker the original tattoo compared to the skin colour the more difficult it will be to remove fully without leaving some trace. And then as the skin changes colour naturally (e.g. Suntan, illness, aging etc) the skin-coloured tattoo will remain the same colour, so becoming more apparent.

    But it's an option that already exists, especially if you just want the immediate visibility to be toned down significantly, but aren't too worried about full removal.

    I was not aware of that. It seems hard to believe that in 1 billion years from now a race of aliens could come to the earth and discover millions of tattoos. Just goes to show, I guess.

    I recently got a tattoo, I didn't realize they were permanent and now I have to live with this:

    Tattoo laser removal is quite common these days, I don't know how it works.

    The bold, just there, I thought you were going to say...''What is the time in Hell''.
    If we are going to talk of natural and unnatural tatoos ... I have two dark marks that look like a double dimple a little to the left of centre of my chin about 30 years old. The ''dimples'' are the marks of my friend's buck teeth when we collided when running around ( two stitches in each to hold the skin back in place).

    Then, after reading the following, it seems silly having a tattoo in the first place, if it's only going to fade and lose any fine detail over time if left alone:
