grip tape issue on my new bike

Hey all. I've got 1 month old Trek 1.2. The white grip tape has started to loosen at on the upper bar. Now my Trek Store makes adjustments free for life on cables and they did tighten this for me but I doubt they'll continue to do this.

My question is this common or should grip tape stay in place permanently? I know I might be holding on a little tight due to being a new rider but coming lose after 3 weeks and 350 miles? does that sound right?

Do you all replace/tighten your own grip tape? Is there a certain type that simply will not budge as I may need this.
