Are you following the artists/shops after care recommendations? Everyone heals differently and finding what works best for YOU can take several tries.

I'd suggest talking to your artist the next time you go and discus it, they may have alternate methods for you or tweaks.

Mine generally heal fully in 3 weeks or so.

I did go back. My tattoo artist stated that my after was good but due to the location my body is having a harder time. He also sad that he may have over worked the area and that could cause some of the thicker scabbing. I am dry healing now on his instruction. It seems to be going ok. No infection and so far in the areas that have lifted there has been no loss of color. Keep your fingers cross it continues this way :-)

Smart move! Healing takes time, I think everyone HATES the ugly phase.. Not just because its ugly, but I know I worry like you about color/ink loss..

Good luck and I'm sure it'll be fine.

I have a question about healing my foot tattoo. I am on week 2 of healing. My tattoo scabbed up really bad. The good news it that the scab are starting to cone off on their own. What I am concerned about is that as the scabs are coming off the ink underneath looks a little blurred. The lines are not as defined looking now. It is definitely not finished healing yet and has a ways further to go. Is this something that should correct itself as the healing continues? Should I be concerned?

    • I went to the original post and pointed out the misspelling. They took the post down and said they were warning me not to reshare it. Yikes. Hope you can get the misspelling fixed somehow, OP. Oh, lord. Now the poor tattoo artist is threatening me with a lawyer. Even though I used her original caption and tagged her in it. 🤣
    • Is that word supposed to be whisper? I hope I am just reading it incorrectly ... 😬
    • No you can't "fix" it and it didn't move. It's ink under your skin, it doesn't move. Calm down and think! Don't tell everyone you know how much it sucks because no one will notice except you anyway. It's not on a piece of paper! Your skin moves and as your skin moves, the ink embedded in your skin will move. That's a nice tattoo. If I was a Tattooer and someone gave me grief about that I'd tell them to take their business elsewhere.
