Woman says tattoo fell off face

Generally, when someone gets a tattoo, they believe it is a permanent addition to their body. But as TikToker Alaina (@ratqueen412) recently shared, that’s not always the case.

In a video with over 1 million views, Alaina says a tattoo she got on her face in Fort Lauderdale “fell off” after just three days.

While surprising, Alaina’s problem is surprisingly common, as some TikTok users noted.

“No one believes me when I say my thigh tattoo fell off,” wrote one user.

“My finger and the back of the ear and arm did the same,” added another.

As Inked Magazine explains, “the tattoo doesn’t actually fall off.” Some skin peeling is normal during the recovery process, but if the tattoo artist doesn’t go deep enough, “the tattoo won’t stick and is more prone to fading quickly.”

Also, “If your tattoo is applied poorly or applied to a difficult spot, not only is it prone to rapid fading, but pigment will also fall out.” If you notice large chunks missing from saturated areas of your tattoo, then something has fallen out.”

This explains why some areas of Alaina’s tattoo are still visible at the end of the video after the ink has “fallen off”.

In comments from a follow-up, Alaina confirms that the artist simply “didn’t go deep enough.”

The follow-up also reveals that Alaina recolored the area, which fixed the issue.

While some criticized the tattoo in the original video (“Consider yourself lucky,” reads a very popular comment), the follow-up showing the final version seems to have reversed opinion.

“Okay this is really cute, much better than it looked before,” shared one commenter.

“It looks way better than the first time,” wrote another. “Maybe it was a good thing.”

And for the face tattoo haters, Alaina wrote: “Wish I knew lol. They act like it’s some kind of life changing thing LOL.”

“I still have my same job and [it] can be covered up with makeup if REALLY necessary,” she concluded.

The Daily Dot contacted Alaina via Instagram direct message.
