hello

Recommended Posts

hello, my name is lanelle. I'm 20 years old and just got my first tattoo like 11 days ago on my inner left arm. the first few days my tattoo looked great, then I started noticing a blue halo-ish effect around my tattoo. I called the tattoo shop that did my tattoo, and he said it is a "bruise" and that it will go away in a week. but it looks too blue to be a bruise, and it seems to be getting a little darker. I think he tattooed too deep, I also have scabbing over my tattoo, and a rash around the blue-ish halo effect. idk what else to do, if it is a blow out, I don't want to cover my tattoo because it was dedicated to my son. plus its my first tattoo. I cant afford a lazor tattoo removal, and I don't know how to approach my tattoo artist about it, please help.

I've had the bruises a couple times. They look darker than normal bruises. Assuming it wasn't done in some guys kitchen, I'm sure you'll be alright. It's easy to be really nervous about your first tattoo.

I have had bruises on my inner upper arm last summer and on my inner thigh just last weekend from getting tattoos.pretty normal,it will go away.

I got it from last weekend,like I said,mine always go away.it can also bruise from the tattooer grabing your arm or leg while tattooing.

this pic below was a couple days after the tattoo and a couple days ago and looking at it now the bruising is already fading.

Update: so I sent a different tattoo artist a picture of my tattoo, he explained to me that it is indeed a blow out, and that the guy who did my tattoo. Has blown out other tattoos as well, that the tattoo artist I talked to fixes sometimes. The rash went away, but the blue halo effect is still present and is still the same shape and color. I hope to get this fixed eventually.

We really can't make assessments/help/etc without pics.

I know ! I had not either,I have been getting tattoos for a long time,when I was in my 20's & 30's etc etc,no big deal,no bruising,so I guess I just write it off now that I am 56 and my skin is different,the bruising is gone now,but the last couple years of tattoos I have experienced this bruising.Oh well,I should be happy that I am still kickin' ! LOL

    • Hello! A few months ago I found an eagle tattoo that I wanted to do but time past and I forgot about it. Now I can’t find it and would appriciate some help. The tattoo was of an whole eagle on the underarm. I think I found it on an instagram in USA. Would really appriciate if you could post it if you have any clue! Thanks in advance! :)
    • Hello everyone! Just had a question about a two month old, full color tattoo I have on my ankle. I was expecting fading over time, as it is full color, but this is a bit quick I think. I tried to follow healing instructions as closely as I could. Going for a touch up next month, but honestly scared that it will heal like this one did. Any advice on what to do next time or how this could've happened? First pic is from the day of, but i know it won't look that good again. Second pic is from today, after all peeling and initial aftercare and stuff. Thanks a bunch. 
    • Maybe you should ask the scratcher that did that to you ... in a very visible spot. If it's hot and oozing, then it's infected. I'd put antibiotic ointment on it and keep it covered.
