    • About two weeks ago I got my first hand tattoo, not my first tattoo or anything I have both sleeves done completely and even a neck tattoo. The hand tattoo is a tribute to my grandpa, it is a anchor with a banner with his name and there is a spider web to fill the rest of my hand as background. I would post a picture but I am writing this off a computer.  anyways I feel like the tattoo came out very dark in contrast compared to the rest of my sleeve it stands out and doesn't flow at all with it almost like I have a dark glove on, Idk if he did this because it is my hand and it does not hold ink as well so he was planning ahead but the web is very dark and over powers the anchor and my hand is covered in black ink. I know it is a new tattoo and its still angry and it will fade and calm down into a lighter color once it has healed but it still looks like its gonna have a darker contrast then the rest of the ink going all the way up my arm. I talked to my artist and he said the tattoo isn't done and there is still a lot of detail and white ink to be added to the whole tattoo to make it look better. but when i look at it it doesn't look like much can really be done because how covered my hand is in black ink from the web so I'm not sure what his plan really is . can the white ink he plans to throw in there really change the whole tattoo and how it looks/flows? Can tattoos look like this when they are unfinished and still need detail?  He is a great artist and I have been going to him for over a year now and I trust him because of the amazing sleeve he's done. I've heard of post anxiety from tattoos and I've defiantly had it before for maybe one or two out of the countless tattoos I have so I am aware it happens.  also maybe because its my hand and its uncoverable and always right in front of me maybe that is making the post tattoo anxiety a lot more intense? Brand new here was hoping to get some feed back maybe from some people that has experienced the same or tattoo artist out there that might have a response to this. Thank You.
    • Hello - It’s been about three months now and the tattoo has definitely made progress with healing. The main concern I have is that it wasn’t bruising and unfortunately was a blowout. While I understand that these can’t be “fixed,” I would greatly appreciate feedback on options. As of now, the only thing I can think of is some type of shading to cover the blowout. Also, don’t know if this is pertinent, but it’s most noticeable in dimly lit places. Outside, most people don’t realize the extent of the discoloration. Thanks.

    • You’re using too much moisturizer. The goal is to not let it dry out, not to drown it. Many people use the dry heal method. If you are using so much moisturizer that you’re getting acne, you should definitely cut waaaaay back.
    • So whenever I get a tattoo on my torso I end up getting quite a bit of acne around the tattoos. I'd assume its from constantly applying moisturizer, It never has any overall problems on the outcome of the tattoo. My main problem is whenever a tattoo takes multiple sessions. I just got one a week about on my stomach and am scheduled to get the shading done in a week, however I have a bit of acne starting to form around it. I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do. I'm not really sure how I'm supposed to properly moisturize my new tattoos while also preventing acne.  If it helps my current aftercare routine is to wash it 3 times a day and apply either cetaphil or Lubriderm until it peels. Then once it does I tend to drop down to twice a day for the next week then I tend to treat it like any other tattoo.
