Please help I'm very worried for my friend is this a blow out? Ten days past since day it was gotten...Tattoo still peeling and in the shiny phase...Face looks very cloudy and distorted..I was thinking maybe the way the white ink is healing?

Mine looks like this and it’s been freaking me out !! Is it normal ?


In my experience, the most common cause of the bumps is over moisturizing. As @Gingerninja asked, how old is it? Regardless, if you are moisturizing it, stop for a couple of days and see how it looks.

So looks normal?

Everybody heals differently, but I wouldn't worry about what a tattoo looks like (unless obviously infected) for at least a month. You can't do anything about it anyway while it's healing, so you might as well relax and let it heal.

Yes, looks normal.  Just healing.

I tell my inexperienced clients to pretend that the tattoo doesn’t exist for a month.  After a month of healing, you will know what the tattoo looks like.  In between now and then, it will be scabby, flaky, shiny, milky, blurry.... that’s just the healing process.

    • that is a great looking tattoo. just leave it and learn from it, he (the fish monster) may remind you (in time) that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. here's an idea...put something bigger, brighter and more 'feminine' on the outside of the forearm to juxtapose and contrast the scary merman-monster...perhaps a elegant mermaid with flowing hair and a shimmering tail, tonnes of aqua blues and greens, with finger waves splashes wrapping around to the inside of the arm fading in and around the monster head. That gives you bright/feminine on the outside of the arm, dark/bold on the inside. but hey, you gotta send us a pic and give me an internet high-five if you use that idea ;) you'll figure it out, don't rush, good ideas come with time...cheers
    • hello @Jbrnes  i would suggest you just leave it. life is about learning. so what if the font/placement is slightly off ? the message likely is your truth (considering you're holding a baby in the picture!). so own it and don't live life with regret, it's too short and that is not what tattoo is about. if you dig the idea of a rose, put it on the other side. roses make great tattoos. but i think you can get more creative than that, especially in a visible place like the neck. get some other tattoos all over the body, each experience will guide and inform you. And yes, get a panther tattoo. Doesn't matter where. Just get one, you won't regret that !
