1 wewk until shading, and I'm still peelling...

Recommended Posts

Just curious if anyone has experience with this. My leg sleeve outline has been in for three weeks so far. My next appt for shading is in one week, and my ankle is still flaking. Any ideas on what I should do? Rescheduling would suck, but I don't want to mess it up. Any advice appreciated!

it should be fine and you shouldn't mess anything up... but that's just my take.

if you live nearby the shop and you're concerned, you should drop by and ask your artist or anyone available there to make sure it's all good. if some parts of your tattoo are healed, the artist may just avoid the areas that aren't healed and work where he or she can.

Thanks for the input. It's about thirty minutes drive and my work doesn't allow much time lately for me to do everything I need in a day. With the way it's progressed I think it's 50/50 that it'll heal up in time. I found my lotion too so I think that'll help!

Don't reschedule... Let your tattooer decide this. If you get up there and its still pealing let him know and he will look at it and most likely reschedule you.

Agree with xcom, let the artist decide. My guy really took the time to look close and see it wan't ready. It actually cost him his appt with me, it gave me a lot of respect for him. Ive seen how busy he is and it wasn't convenient for him to reschedule.

^^^ This would have been the right solution! It's still less than a week so this is still a possibility!

My guy has a 3 day cancellation period or I pay if he can't fill the spot. So I would have called and sent pics, but that's just my situation. It all depends on the agreement you have with him.

Lol, yeah I regretted that! Now I have some smaller stuff in my pocket for that occassion. We did go ahead and start my necklace and schedule it for 4 days later.

    • 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.
    • it looks fine, let it heal for 4 to 6 weeks , when you are breathing, moving, trying to get a pic, it's going to look off, crooked, whatever, it's on a human  body ! relax, like I said, it looks great. it looks  straight to me.
    • Hello  So 3 days ago i got done my tattoo. All seemed fine till today. I removed the tattoo protection sticker and i noticed its uneven! In my opinion its not written in one straight line. What annoys me the most is the last word ‚heart‘. Its so off the line and now i dont know what to do! Can i fix that or will it go back into line when healed? Please help me out.. https://share.icloud.com/photos/0DPNH-Sr9T7knIxZQWeSrMx-A
