I'm 10 days since 2nd session, with assessment for 3rd to follow, and note a great deal of variation in how well my scalp has taken to the ink. In certain conditions this shows a patchy, inconsistent appearance, with each area's shade moving with head movement / viewpoint (so, not caused by direct light). The areas of lighter / darker shade are each small - size of coins or other random shapes, interlocked, and the variation is pretty much all over. I should add, in gloomier light, it's looking good.
My practitioner (who is great, a relaxed, soulful person) thought I might not need a 3rd session, but to wait and assess as I'd had a fair bit of bleed during 2nd session which could cause fading; perhaps this is part of it. It's now clear I'll definitely need the 3rd session.
My query is, what's to say these areas will take any better the 3rd time than the 2nd time? I understand immune response plays a part, and I don't necessarily expect perfection like the best gallery promo shots show, but I'd like to always know 'where I stand' with it when I'm out and about, at work or whatever.
So, taking into account some light conditions negate SMP (understood, fine), knowing the shade is (reasonably) consistent is obviously important.
If a practitioner agrees it's still too inconsistent after 3rd session, do I get further sessions within my fee?
