    That bit that's kind of above the ditch, sort of on the top/outside of the forearm? That's been the worst for me, always takes longer, and has had a little bit of fall-out.

    @ThaliaCamille Yes that's the bit. I recon it'll be a couple of weeks before the scabby bits gone.

    @jade1955 & @ThaliaCamille - so many people I know have said the same thing about the ditch, but I think I must just be one lucky son'bitch? Both my arms have healed perfectly, and they both had decent coverage when healing. In saying that, last one was healing while I was on holidays so that helped a lot, and the other one I was working in the office which was a little annoying, but seemed to be ok. I just had to sit weird at the computer to type lol

    Kinda off topic but has anyone had your tattoos heal alot lighter then most?
    My Artist always jokes with me saying that i have odd skin to tattoo and that i always heal lighter than most people.

    The top of my foot. I knew it would be damn that sucked. I have an inner forearm piece and it comes right to the "ditch" and I had some trouble with that healing but not as bad as what I would imagine the whole ditch would be.

    Sorry about not up updating a picture of my tattoo. Its been over a month and it still has some scabs, and a bit of ink fall out from where a scab was until this weekend... So sadly I'm going to have to get it touched up.

    Re: Most Difficult Tattoo Spots to Heal

    Spots with lots of movement tend to be the hardest to heal followed by places that don't get to breathe much. I had one client that when we did his ditch he actually splinted his arm at night to keep it as immobile as possible and it healed the best I have seen for the ditch. Also keeping these areas too moist causes a lot of issues in healing. You only want just enough to take that tight, dry feeling under control.

    I had the one on my foot heal badly too. I had to go to work the day after it was done, meaning wearing socks. I loosely taped a wound pad over it with some after care ointment the artist gave me then put on my sock. The tattoo must have creased from sitting so much and it got infected, a first for me. I kept it clean, used neosporin on it and it healed up. I did have a blank area where it was infected, which I did have touched up at a later session.
