Lazarvs Posted January 14 Share Posted January 14 So I had a big colored tattoo on my forearm which I regretted. Went for a couple black out bands to cover it up. Probably with one of the best artists in the country, won multiple prizes and has a really baffling portfolio, mostly realism. Now this shit was painful to tattoo, especially over the old tattoo. Now as it's healing, most of it is fine and looks normal, thin flaking forming, no more plasma oozing, no redness or swelling. But the part over the old piece is just terrible. Still hurts, doesn't allow me to fully strech my arm comfortably, has rrally thick crusty scabbing which is still oozing plasma underneath as I clean it. Cleaning 3x a day and moisturising too. Wearing no clothes over it and sleeping with my arm suspended so it basically never touches anything. Artist told me it definitely looks thicker than expected, but to just keep babying it and cleaning/moisturising religiously. I think my skin hadn't healed enough to be covered 😔 Hoping this comes out not terrible and hopefully it stops hurting/oozing soon. I don't think it's infected despite being occasionally red if I move a lot, still slightly swollen..i have no chills, fever, and I think its only oozing plasma as therr seems to be a thick layer of it beneath the scab. What's y'all thoughts? Pics are after washing, before moisturising. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
