Can I finish my tattoo if there is any peeling at all still going on?

Recommended Posts

I have an appointment in three days to fill in the one rose in my tattoo that didn't get finished in the first round. In the mean time I assumed the peeling would stop by then. It will have been exactly 2 weeks when I go in for my appointment. Right now there is still a little sunburn-like peeling just around the edges on the clean skin, not on the tattooed skin. It's not everywhere. Most of it has cleared up, but there is a little, especially in the more detailed spots on the leaves. I kind of continue to hope it'll be all gone by Monday, but I can't believe how long it is lingering. If this doesn't stop by Monday, do you think I'll be turned away when I show up? Should I reschedule now so that I don't leave his night empty?

I ended up going down there to ask him. He didn't seem that certain and I ended up having to go around to all the guys for their opinion. In the end I kept my appointment and everything worked out okay but man it really hurt way more than the first session.

Sometimes it does after a couple of weeks. I had 2 worked on more than once, alternated the outline/shading and coloring. So everything had time to heal up.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
