Here is a pic of my arm ditch tattoo done by Mario Desa on the 11th September.

All nicely healed in 12 days.

Same healing regime usual wash twice daily. Dab with paper towel and let air dry for 20 minutes before a very thin application of Aquaphor. For the first week I applied a lightwieght Tubinette tubular bandage. It's very thin and allows plenty of air to the fresh tattoo and keeps other parts of the arm and sweat away from the tattoo. All you have to remember, when changing the bandage, is to soak it for a few minutes during the the first few days. I also live with 5 cats. So its keeps cat hairs away from the fresh tattoo. Believe me cats hairs get everywhere.

I thought the ditch was the inside of your elbow.

It is.. maybe that's his.. hard to tell...

To me it looks like the bottom petal where the blood drops are could be in the ditch, it has that slightly blurry ditch look in that area.. It doesn't to me look totally healed though, I think you've still got another week or so before it's really healed.. Either way nice tattoo by a cool dude, so good job on that!

Thats spot on Ursula. It wont be properly healed for several weeks. But its well on the way. All scabbing has gone just a little dry skin.

    • I was prepared for my knee ditch to be a tough spot to heal. I was not prepared for it to get INFECTED! Ugh. Fortunately, I sought medical care as soon as something seemed amiss: abnormal redness around the tattoo about a week out from getting it done, and the worst tattoo itchiness I’ve ever experienced (I actually thought I’d gotten a mosquito bite ON the fresh tattoo at first.) I’ve been on antibiotics for a few days and it hasn’t drastically improved, but the itchiness has subsided and at least it doesn’t appear to be getting worse. And the tattoo still seems to be healing normally. Not sure where I went awry with this healing as I babied this tattoo more than any of my others. I only washed twice a day instead of three, but I also wasn’t leaving the house at all and had it exposed to air almost constantly. *shrug* I emailed my artist and the shop just to give them a heads up, which I felt kind of weird about but they should know, right? I don’t actually think I picked this up at the shop, but couldn’t hurt for them to give everything a nice once over with disinfectant, yeah? Anyway, this first picture is some mild redness, the second is the worsening redness one day later that prompted me to go to urgent care. The second is a couple days later. Looks about the same currently…really hoping to see more significant improvement soon.  
    • Hi there! So I just got two tattoos last night, one on top of each other. The one on the top seems pretty normal to me, it’s red and is a little uncomfortable like any other tattoo, but the one below that one is more red, has some bruising it looks like? The skin is tighter and it stings a little bit more than the one above it. Now I don’t know if it’s because of the placement, because maybe that one was more over worked than the other one? I know it is still very new and fresh, but my other tattoos have not reacted this way but I’m wondering if maybe because it’s in my arm? And the stinging feeling feels like sun burnish, but only on the bottom one. Does anyone have any advice for me??!
