does this happen to anyone else?


Recommended Posts

from time to time, the outlines on tattoos that i've had for quite sometime will raise and i can feel the outlines when i touch the tattoo. it happens sparingly, but it's definitely something that has happened more than once. has this ever happened to anyone else?

I know there's a better thread on raised tattoos than this one, but you can read about stuff here: http://www.lastsparrowtattoo.com/forum/tattoo-after-care/558-tattoo-outline-raised.html

Next time, poke around a little bit and try out the search function to see if something's already been covered. (In conclusion, raised tattoos are common, especially in certain weather, nothing to freak out about.)

thanks for sharing the thread, although, other than your comment in there it seems like it mostly had to do with tattoos that are healing. i'm at work and don't always have the time available to search for threads, which is why i made mine.

I have tattoos that react differently to the weather conditions.

Some of my outlines raise when it is hot and sunny or if the air is dry (i.e. in airplanes).

I have a white bird tattoo where the white turns a golden colour during summer months. Or different ink colours get a bit itchy when the weather is dry.

I also have some scars that react similarly to the weather.

Don't think it is anything to worry about, just your body's reaction to the environment.

Funny you posted this now; I've never experienced this until the past two days. Mine started popping out with this crazy heat wave in NJ. Judging by what others have said and my experience, it must be hot weather.

Well, being a New Jersey-an myself, I can say I think stupid NJ humidity+heat = raised

Mine don't ever really raise in the weather. The only time mine become raised are when my thai boxing instructor hits us as hard as he can on the stomach with a pad. The ones on my stomach/ribs become raised for about 10 minutes after that and become really sensitive

Youse guys got mosquitos by you?

Most of my work is covering old, hand-poked stuff, and when I get bit by a mosquito, say, when it's hot out, if the bite happens to be on one of the old handmade lines, a section, or sometimes the entire old tattoo will become raised. Give a rather spooky effect to see a sword risong out of the center of a demon's head!

Well allergies aside, you have to realize a tattoo is skin that experienced trauma (aka poked thousands of times with a needle) and then on top of that you put stuff underneath your skin and made it stay there on purpose.

Now if we look at a tattoo from the bodies standpoint it goes as follows:

Holy shit I'm getting poked over and over

Holy shit there is foreign material in me now

Wait...wtf why are you making sure this shit stays here!

I got a bunch of scars and scar tissue is not like normal skin tissue. My scars change with bloodpressure, heat, wetness, etc so why would a tattoo be any different.

    • Yessir I still have a 2 bicep bands scheduled with the same tattoo artist. He says he’ll know exactly how to do it for next one because now he knows how his depth should be with my flesh especially on the inner bicep. He says we should be good no issues. what do you guys think? Should I continue - he says the tattoo would be free given the previous ones. 
    • It takes 6-8 weeks to heal. You’ll know then, regardless of how many times you ask or how you word the question. Having said that, thin delicate skin, like where you got your tattoo, is most prone to blowouts and thin lines make them the most obvious. There is nothing you can do except cover them up if it really bothers you. It’s been asked dozens of times.
    • hi guys, ive recently had 2 band tattoos done and it’s been 5 days since. first is the wrist band (3 lines) and the second is the ankle band (1 thick line between 2 thin lines) I’ve been rubbing Richie Bulldog certified hustle butter on it daily (twice a day) since taking off the plastic cover. First plastic seal was put one for 24 hours then I washed it and dried it and put another plastic seal for 48 hours. So I’ve rubbed hustle butter since Wednesday evening. my questions are: - are these major/minor blowouts? - would you continue using same tattoo artist after these blowouts? - tattoo artist is willing to fix them with same skin tone ink to camouflage it (after it is fully healed) free of charge - would you move forward with this? - how long does it take to fully heal? - if tattoo artist is willing to do a free tattoo for this inconvenience, should I consider it? ankle band: front view: Outer side view : : inner side view: Back:
