New tattoo advice...

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

So I recently got my first tattoo, only a few days ago, and the edges seem to be blown out. Will it stay like this or is it still just healing? Cheers.

Some people bruise with tattoos.  You could just have a peel starting. Peeling linework gets kinda puffy looking.

You have more healing to do now. Take care of it, keep it clean and follow your artist's instructions.

You can't do anything to stop a blow out, and it happens sometimes. After two to four weeks, the same artist should be able to help you if something does need to be fixed. But don't obsess about it now.

    • Hi all.  Looking for some advice here.  I'm attending an upcoming 3 day tattoo convention and was thinking about getting tattooed each day.  My dilemma would be about the healing process.  Basically I'm curious if anyone has done this before and how they healed.  I know the go-to answer will be Saniderm/Tegaderm, but I have used that stuff a few times and even though I healed fine, something about covering my tattoo with a sticky bandage just makes me paranoid something will get trapped in there.  I end up not liking it because I spend too much time worrying.  But on the other hand, if I just use the soap & aquaphor method, I'm afraid that won't be any good because I'll be around a lot of people and I'll be getting another tattoo in the same area (all 3 would be on my legs).  I'm worried about the tattoo being exposed or possibly infected, or just not heal well because of everything going on.  Thanks for reading this far and I appreciate any advice that is offered.
    • I'll be there.  Hopefully all 3 days, but we'll see what happens.
