Hi everybody, i got a tattoo 2 weeks ago, at day 2 it did look like raw skin on some spots as you can see here:
Overworked? Bad after care? I dont know, but never happened to me on previous tattoos. As expected a big ugly scab showed up a few days later, and by now (day 14) its still there:
When i showed it to my artist he told me to dry heal the thing so i am doing. What could i expect if the scab finally goes off? It will be fine with just a touch up?
The rest of the tattoo is healing perfectly.
Personally, I don't think I would get a tattoo if it didn't have any special meaning to me... but I acknowledge that many people (probably the vast majority of people) get tattooed just because they like some design, so I would say that the only thing you can do is talk to yourself and understand whether you are a "deep meaning tatto person" or not.
I think that most of the whole “deep personal meaning” bullshit is a product of tattoo “reality” shows.
Most people I know just have tattoos they think are cool. I never hear these elaborate back stories about them.
