I do not think this is infection at all (I am in the medical field and see skin infections often) but you do appear to be having a scar reaction. I'd say the artist was a bit heavy-handed on the right side, and it is a hypertrophic scar response, but of course that's me looking at a pic over the internet so take it for what it is worth.

This is the risk we all take when being tattooed, and I would not blame the artist, since they can't know ahead of time how your skin will respond, especially since obviously your skin doesn't always respond this way. I'd also NOT do anything to it at all, especially not this soon. You run the risk of making it worse by touching it up, though I'd get some more opinions on that - this is just my own opinion.

    • 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.
