Cosmetic tattooing is considered a permanent procedure as you will not be able to wash your results off, however your body will natural metabolise the pigment slowly over the years, it generally will always be present.
As cosmetic tattoos age the pigments may alter over time. the pigments which were initially implanted break down at different speeds and this is because the larger molecules are harder for your body to metabolise, If your body is holding onto the larger molecules it is common to be left with hues of colours which in time might been neutralisation in the future.
