Hand Tattoos

Recommended Posts

Tattoos on the hand seem to be one of the best spots on the body, to get damaged before it heals. For me anyway. There is nothing quite like the feeling you get when you jam your hand into your pants pocket at 7-11 to pull out money. You can almost hear the ink being pulled out. So, if your going to get a hand tattoo, you might want to wear loose clothing with big pockets. Dont use your pants pockets to keep your stuff in. Wear baggy, loose shirts that are easily pulled over your hand with as little contact as possible. the best way is to keep the hand wrapped up for a few days, along with the baggy wear. I have had to touch up the tattoo on my hand twice, yes I learn things the hard way.

When I got my right hand done, I did it on a Saturday and didn't need to wear gloves until Tuesday. Then when I did, used a size bigger glove and was just very careful. Did a completely dry heal and it worked out just fine.

The pocket thing sucks though. I just remember to switch everything to the other pocket.

You know this is something that many may not think of. I know that I would not have thought about it. It does make perfect sense to me. I am a hand shover in my pockets, so this is something that I would really have to watch out for. Thanks for the advice.

    • Nothing on hand, but it seems like a cool idea. 
    • Any cool pirannha tattoos out there? Please don't tell me "instagram" "google" "pinterest" or anything like that. I'm considered getting an outline of a piranha skull in lime green and dark purple (artist would be free to play with the idea) to symbolism me getting over my cancer (green and purple are the colors). Would love to see some inspirational pictures :)
    • I am experiencing the very same thing currently. Been searching all over to find out what and why. I found this and it is exactly what I’m experiencing. The only difference is I have quite a few tattoos and it is only happening with one and only on the first word. Weird it wouldn’t be the whole tattoo. I will be scheduling an appointment with my dermatologist for sure. This is very worrisome. My tattoo is about 6 months old and no issues up until 2 days ago. Crazy. I hate it.
