New guy here quick question .

Recommended Posts

What's up guys . My name is Jeff I'm from ny I just finished my 3rd tattoo on my right forearm . I have two others as well hey have all been done by the same artist .

This one seems to be healing well but the others were on my calfs so I didn't watch the whole process . I had it done last weds . It has peeled heavy already . I switched from a&d to co co butter (palmers) . Everything looks great but the redness purple worries me a bit . I'm thinking it's just bruised from the spot it's in . What do you guys think ? No real warmth to it or anything like that and no oozing or puss or nothing of that nature . It's a tad sore but not to the touch . You could push on it etc and it doesn't hurt any more or less . Thanks - Jeff

Sounds/looks like bruising. Don't sweat it.

Grey shading usually looks a little darker and redder until the tattoo settles and then it lightens up. That's the best part of B&G tattoos, watching that healing process. So relax and enjoy.

    • 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.
