In the above link, you say that Aqualad dropped out of Sorcery school before he got to the advanced level, which is why his tattoos are always visible on his arms while Tula and Garth's aren't.

In "Downtime," Queen Mera implies that Aqualad, Tula and Garth used to be in the same learning level.

However, in issue #5, when Aqualad and Garth show up to fight Ocean Master, we can see Aqualad's dark tattoos (before they glow) on his arms, but Garth doesn't have any on his. Shouldn't either both or none have visible tattoos, if they were at the same level?

Please don't interpret my question as a dishonest attempt to corner you. I'm just truing to figure out the continuity.

Garth should probably have had tattoos in that shot, but we missed it.

Garth is also THE top student at the Conservatory - able to summon the power of the Tempest - so it's also at least possible that he was advanced for his age even back then.
