Lifting Thread;training for the tattooed warrior.

Recommended Posts

Quick question, this seems like a good place for it. I'm scheduled for my next tattoo on July 20th - it will be on my inner/front bicep. I should be okay for doing a Warrior Dash race on August 8th or 9th, right?

@L2DB How long does it usually take you to heal? You're giving yourself about 3 weeks of heal time. I've been told to get past the flaky stage before doing anything crazy. It's very variable.

Well, turns out only the competitive waves are still available for registration for the race so it's moot. I may try to do a race later in the fall.

    • 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.
