The old ink and new ink that I was talking about was more about an allergic reaction. My dermatologist stated that has happened quite a few times but can be difficult to identity depending on what tests you take. I’m not saying it “mixes” to produce a different color lol. My dermatologist gave me several scenarios of what could happen if there’s an allergic reaction or infection etc. Of course if it was a full blown “ink allergy” He said surgical removal of the tattoo site would be needed since there is no cure for that. I was just responding to the other dude and shooting the shit. At this point I really don’t care what it is and I’m done looking for answers, I just am trying to patiently wait on it to heal and see how crazy it looks in a few weeks.
Where are you getting this "old ink mixing with new ink" thing from? Ink put under the skin doesn't "mix." If you put white ink in the same place as you have red ink, it doesn't turn pink. That's not how tattooing works. The simple explanation is most likely the correct one. It's not likely allergies, it's not after care, it's not ink mixing, it's just a heavy hand. Allergies don't just go away. If you were really allergic to the ink, it wouldn't just heal. That's not how allergies work.
I understand you're looking for answers, but you already have the answer and now there's nothing to do but wait and see how it heals.
Umm it's a little warm at times, but not bad. It's not oozing, no smelling. Just wat looks like a TON of thick nasty scabbing, and now they're cracking and starting to bleed, but I'm trying not to put too much lotion, but its been tough. Do you think this will heal normally or will it look effed up after healed? I can also tell that it's missing some ink in spots, and a few small lines are missing. Is that a product of the way it looks or..?
