Tattoo Blowout

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Just starting tattooing and may have caused some blowout. Is there anything that can be done about this in the short term or must I just deal with it? I know I should get an apprenticeship but I now live in South Korea and it's difficult to find that sort of thing here. Thanks.

I'm just figuring out this picture embedding thing, so if you look at my images, there's an example of what I'm talking about.

I'm not asking for technique advice, I'm asking for aftercare advice. Is there anything I can do to help the healing process / stop the spreading process?

I'm talking about things that are actually helpful.

So am I.

Stop tattooing. Start getting tattooed by people with integrity and skill who have earned the right to be tattooers, and do it right.

That's the most helpful advice you'll get if you want to learn how to start getting involved in tattooing for real.

I've already bandaged it for the appropriate amount of time, cleaned it, and applied the triple antibiotic ointment to it. I was just curious if anyone else had any experience with this sort of issue and if there was any post-tattoo remedy. Seems like there's not.

I have a number of tattoos from people who actually know how to tattoo. I went into this knowing that I am not an expert and tried one on myself because I would never do it to another person without the proper experience. I'm not running a bootleg tattoo operation over here, I just experimented on myself.

Yeesh. Stopping tattooing is the best after care advice. You'd have a better chance asking an actual tattooer whos tattooing you this question. And technically, it is a technical question because the lack of technique probably caused the blowout, technically speaking of course
