    Hello everyone, I have a question to ask you all. I have a tattoo on my right wrist and I am now on day 3 of getting it done. The skin is still a little sore, occasionally itchy, and occasionally oozing yellow fluid. is this normal? If normal, can my tattoo area come in contact with water? Can I scratch when it's itchy? 3

    Is this something to worry about?
    Hi, had this tattoo for just over 3 weeks now. The scabs have been and gone, and I've noticed there are some white ish bits in some places.

These were also the last bits to scab, just wondering if this is normal or will need touching up? 3

Is this what is referred to as "scabbing"? or is this something else? It isn't full of puss or wet, its pretty dry which makes me think its not infected. It seems like the top layer of skin in these areas has just come of.  3

My questions are; 1. Why do I see things regarding the chemicals in colours not being safe, is there any truth to that? (I live in the UK if that makes any difference) 2. I don't plan on rushing into it, but 3
