If you gain muscle mass then it will stretch it. But if you gain a lot of muscle mass then it will stretch it and make it fade color. Depending on how much muscle mass you gain will depend on how much it stretches and fades. the tattoo should stretch to fit with your new size. however using steroids will cause the tattoo to stretch too far in one direction or another, thus permanently disfiguring it. whether it will fade i dont know. but the tattoo will resize with you skin (Assuming natural muscle growth).
