Last night I dreamed that I was going to get a tattoo on my leg, but also somehow wound up with a medium-sized pink fairy silhouette right in the center of my back. Just a black outline filled in with solid Pepto-Bismol pink. Later on, after walking out of the shop, I "woke up" and felt relieved. Reached my hand down my shirt to scratch my back, to find that the fairy had been replaced by a terrible, half-finished meditating Guanyin that was peeling. I've never been more relieved to wake up for real.

I've had a bunch of tattoo dreams too. Some dreams, I have no tattoos at all... I'm conscious of having HAD tattoos, but in the dream, they're gone. Before I had a sleeve, I would dream that I had them, on both arms.

A recurring dream is that I have an appointment, but can't remember the exact date or know where the shop is. I'm usually pretty punctual with appointments and have only had to cancel 2 due to grave circumstances.

So when I was eighteen I got a nautical star on the back of my arm, above my elbow.

I used Triple Antibotic to heal it and it actually raised half the scab from my skin and now the star is like raised up. I thought it was an infection but it was so bad healing. I have some pictures. It got so messed up that I had to go to a dermatologist to get it injected with some kind of stuff to get the raising of the skin to go down. Eventually got it touched up and seems to be OK now. Crazy stuff.

Basically, NEVER use Triple Antiobtic.

    • oof. yeah one's mileage will definitely vary
    • A tattoo I had that was infected had every bit of color fall out. Like ALLLL of it. It was a few months before he could touch it up.
    • I had a similar problem: I wore jeans (I have to work) and they chafed my then-new tattoo, causing scabbing, and then discoloration. While getting other work done with my artist, I asked him about it and he said to wait. Here we are a few years later, and the color has healed fine: there's no brownish red anymore where the scabs were. So a touch up isn't necessary at this point. Now, the color falling out is a different issue, which will most likely need a touch up, and my tattoos are tebori, but the lesson is that allowing the body to work its magic over a longish period of time isn't an unreasonable or unheard of thing.
