    You probably just got ripped off. You have Henna instead of a real Tattoo.

    I've never really seen 'gold' in a tattoo before so yeah it probably is. I got a really big one on my ribs and I remember the outline and shading originally being like a dark brown but it turned to black when it healed.

    If when doing the colour you start to bleed it changes the colour,as the blood mixes with the ink. Then as it heals the blood withdraws from the dermis causing the ink to go to its original colour.

    Don't panic, see how it goes in another few weeks and then if you aren't entirely happy go back for a touch up
