    • hi! new to LST so it wont let me post on the appropriate forum but i was wondering if my tattoo is healing properly or if i should have myself checked.  got my tattoo 1 month ago (red ink) and it has already gone through the scabbing + peeling stage at the 2 week mark. note, i accidentally put too much moisturizer every day (something i only realized after researching online) by week 3 it started becoming foggy, raised, and dull looking so i thought it was just dead skin that needed to be removed so i STUPIDLY scrubbed it lightly (as if “lightly” would justify the act of scrubbing haha) with a washcloth and it started getting irritated and stingy.  its been a month now and my scabs are slightly yellow that ooze out clear-yellow liquid (nothing thick, just watery) only after i wash it for too long/bother the scabs. very itchy, slightly red, but not painful. went to my tatt artist 3 days ago and they told me it seems to be just healing a second time, but to monitor it for a few more weeks then i should probably go to the doctor.  please let me know what you guys think because i’m paranoid by nature and getting worried.
    • Hi everyone I have a quick question  Is it to use a firming lotion on a healed tattoo.
