Bump in tattoo has me worried

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, so I got a tattoo about a month ago. When I first got it everything was fine but I noticed a tiny bump in part of it. Barely noticeable, a week later it bubbled up more, which caused me to think it was a pimple so I left it alone. Three weeks later, after it got worse I tried to pop it. It leaked a combination of water, blood and red ink (definitely not blood...too red) now, after leaving it alone for a few days, it's shriveled up and looks pretty gnarly. Has this happened to anyone else before? I'm more worried about f***in' up the tattoo than my skin. Before and after pics included.

dont worry about it the panther just scratched deeper on that part.

also it might have just been a tiny ingrown hair

Ok, this honestly made me laugh.:4_joy:

Guessing ingrown hair as well. 

Yeah looking at it that's probably what it is. I'll just leave it alone before I make it worse...hopefully it'll fix itself. Will update if it gets better/worse.

    • Thanks @Fig1996! honestly I think I’d probably hate if everyone in met asked me about or commented on it too! Haha grass is always greener I suppose! What was your first piece? Is it posted anywhere on here?
    • I like your tattoo a lot! And what a cool and original idea to go with your childhood home! I at least haven't heard of that idea before, so I really like it. I always like me some original and creative ideas. 🙂 As for your question, I've worked as a supervisor in retail for 7 years and therefore had to deal with customers a lot. The moment I got my first forearm tattoo, I got a LOT of customers asking about it. They all told me they really liked it, and one even told me she wanted to get one exactly like mine, and I even had older customers who were super grumpy about tattoos be like "I do like yours" LOL. Then I got another forearm tattoo, though higher up on my forearm, on my right arm and I never once had any customer or even colleague ask about that one. I love that tattoo just as much as the other if not more, and, like @Dan, I'm completely fine with that too. I know this tattoo looks good and professional; and that it fits me well, and I don't really need anyone else validating that because what really matters is what I think when I see it, and I like it.  Frankly, the sheer amount of comments I got about my first tattoo kind of daunted me. Of course, I knew what I was getting into when I got it tattooed so I never resented anyone for asking about it either, but when you get comments like "but what does it REALLY mean?" "what is the deeper meaning behind it???" daily, it does get old pretty quick. 😅
    • I personally really don't think it has to be weird at all. I'd just approach an artist whose work you like and who you feel like you can trust, and then they'll tell you whether they want to take on your task or not. I really think there'd be quite some artists out there who would be willing to take that on. Long as you're not asking them to finish tattoos others worked on/started, which I don't see being an impossible task either but which probably would put them in a much more difficult position given the differences in style as opposed to their own they'd have to work with, I don't really see many issues with this.  I think in most cases the best thing is to just approach and ask! 🙂
