    Never heal well
    I have 12 tattoos and my last few have healed so badly that I am reluctant to get anymore done. I stick to the healing routine everytime using mild anti bacterial wash 2/3 times a day, make sure it is dry before I add a pure moisturiser.

    Tattoo advice needed
    I got this tattoo back in November. I had it touched up in mid-December from the same artist and it still looks like this. You can see on the “N” that it almost looks like my skin is coming through the ink on the right side. Is it time to get it touched up for a third time but by a different artist? The missed ink is very noticeable. Thanks for your help! 3

    New here and I need advice!! :)
    Hi! My name is Jess and I’m a beginner in tattooing, so far I’ve tattooed on fake skin and myself. However, things don’t work out so well ahaha😂 The problem is that I keep cutting my skin while I’m tattooing myself and I don’t know what I’m doing wrong? The needle gets stuck in my skin and the ink doesn’t seem to enter properly (and deep enough). Can you guys help me please?    Thank you xox  3
