Weird looking shit

Recommended Posts

hey, i was wondering if any of you could help me out. Im really worried about my new tat, it looks fking weird, my tattoo artist said he will finish it next session but i cant really understand what he did. It was originally a wolf, i decided to add kind of an fire efect, with brazes passing in front of the wolf. he said he could do it, and after finishing the first session, he left me with this: i dont know if you cant see it, but he just added a red color around the wolf, and it looks weird. I cant see how he will complete that into fires and brazes. Can anyone help me solve this doubt? I cant go to the tattoo artist because he is in L.A till next week. Im really worried

So that pinkish orange part is ink? Looks like some kind of skin condition. It also goes down into the hair. I don't think it is ink, might have had some kind of reaction to the ink. Have you thought about seeing a doc?

When were the pics taken in relation to when the work was done?  

Did this artist also do the wolf?

Scratch the first question, just looking at the pics it's clear your leg is freshly shaved so these appear to have been taken directly after session.

i think what you are prob seeing is red / yellows mixed in with irritated skin from the session.

first - dont cream up and take pics - clean it up let it dry and then have someone else take some proper photos - i like the wolf

i see bruising and iritation 

as for the red flames? i think we need a better pic

perhaps once the tattoo is healed a bit

if you are concerned about there being some kind of infection or reaction

then by all means see your local doc

but i think it looks alot like bruising

i myself though would be disappointed by the gratuitous use of unnecessary use of background color but whatever right

you might want to take careful consideration of your next move with this tattoo and if you want this particular artist to be a part of it

    • Hi Lilu can I ask what your tattoo looks like now? I have a similar problem with my new tat
    • Hi everyone, I got a floral tat on my arm exactly a week ago. The little turtle in the middle has been there for a few years, the flowers around it are new. Fresh out of the chair the shading was light and perfect. But three days later I noticed the three flowers closer to my elbow were getting darker - specifically that the shading was getting darker. The flowers closer to my wrist are not so bad. A week on now and the dark shading in the petals seems to have gotten slightly darker still. Is this normal? Could it be a subtle form of blow out? I really liked the lighter shading and I feel like it is now too dark, I'm hoping after everything has peeled it will look lighter again. Photos attached I know we won't fully know what it looks like until it's healed in 4-6 weeks but any help in the meantime would be hugely appreciated, especially if anyone thinks this is blow out or has similar experience with shading that seemed to get darker instead of lighter Ps I'm in Sydney Australia where covid restrictions have lifted for tattoo parlours
