Blownout or Healing?

Recommended Posts

Hey I'm new here, just got my first tattoo. Im not sure if it is blown out or just healing. After i first got it (4 days ago) the outline looked crisp and sharp. However, today i noticed the outline was somewhat blurry and i am worried it is blown out. Heres what it looks like today

Could be a bit of blowout - but way too early to tell what it will look like. A final heal takes 6 months or so depending on how your skin reacts. It's hard to tell the size of the tattoo from your pic but it looks smallish(?) Most people will never notice...but it's not unusual to stress over your first tattoo. Even if there is some light blowout, some of it may fade out. Give it time. Care for it properly and see how it heals.

    • looks normal to me, it will take at least 6 weeks to heal and more to settle in.
    • hi just got this two weeks ago wondering if it’s healing normal or does it look weird 
    • I have a date set to get this design on my forearm. I’ve heard that fine lines and pointillism can sometimes blur easily so I am a bit worried that the grey pointillism leaf will blur out quickly. Any thoughts on if this will happen and how long it would take? Additionally, if this were to happen would it be possible to touch it up and somehow make it more crisp? For instance, by outlining the leaf with a thicker black line in the future if it were to blur? I just don’t want to end up with a grey blob I can’t do anything about on my arm in 5 years!
