is my tattoo infected help

Recommended Posts

recently i went to get a touch up on my tattoo i went home washed it and put a and d on it but it has a pimple on it and also it has a kind of stink smell on it. they say if there is no puss then its not infected and i don't want to keep bugging my artist. its a tiny pimple im not popping it but will it go away

my biggest fear is that its infected cause of the strange smell.

i am using a and d not sure why this is going on after getting touched up some of the ink is coming off too

are you washing the tattoo off before everytime you apply more a&d? it's pretty thick so if you are just layering and layering a&d on it and not washing it properly then you are more than likely clogging you pores, which is making your skin break out.

Are you sure the smell isnt the ointment? A&D has a distinct smell. Looks like a pimple rather than what I would consider an infection, but your artist should be able to help you more than a bunch of random folks speculating on the internet. I not, hit the doc-in-a-box.

    • Hi everyone, my name is Joseph and Im a tattooaholic. one day when I was 23 I realized...."I can do whatever the F*&K I want" and got a tattoo. then another one. and another one. and now im two sleeves deep with a calve sleeve and a full leg sleeve on the way. along with several pieces on my back and chest. absolute addiction along with weight lifting. its helped ward of depression and releases serious endorphins, the effects of a recent tattoo last several months. glad to be part of a large tattoo community and looking forward to contributing to the site. cheers everyone!
    • I think it looks amazing!!! I actually really really love it. Don't worry, it's easy to have tattoo remorse. Especially for bigger pieces-- really, you just need some time to adjust to the change. Hopefully soon you will start feeling it as part of yourself!
