Jagua tattoos develop in 36 hours and can last up to 14 days at their best. Upon application, the stains are translucent and will darken over time (peaked at 36 hours).
Depending on where you place your tattoo, generally, tattoo starts to fade at the 5th day mark. Here are some factors that will affect the tattoo's longevity:
- Your daily activity (if you are more active, your tattoo stain will fade faster.)
- Your body temperature (if you are generally more of a warm bodied, your tattoo will fade faster.)
- Placement (Stain around the finger and wrist fade the fastest. Stain on the leg and inner elbow last the longest.)
- How moisturised is your skin? (a more moisturized tattoo will last longer)
- Amount of abrasion (if your clothes keep rubbing against the stain, the stain will fade faster.)
- Your skin’s unique chemistry.
