Is this a blowout?! Or is it just healing like this?

Recommended Posts

I got my second tattoo done on my shoulder 2 days ago, and now in places it looks like the ink has spread and I read about blowouts but I dont know if mine is one or whether it will go once fulled healed. It's not just in that spot, its in 2 other spots but this one looks the worst. Please help is there anyway I can prevent the rest of the tattoo getting like this? what should i do?

Yep, that's a blowout. It might fade slightly when it heals and I assume you're getting it colored anyway, so I don't think it's exactly a disaster. I have blowouts. It happens sometimes. 

I wasn't planning to get it coloured, but I guess now I have to, I messaged the tattoo artist and he didn't ask to see a picture just said that it sounds like I've been in hot water?

I also had it happen when I did my upper left pectorial. I had a different artist do what is called "shading" which is adding a lighter gray area to the outline. Mine was a tribal so it worked well. At first I was self conscious of it, but now I don't even notice it anymore. Shading was the right thing to do I think.4926c11cd352136b95fe15327239489e.jpg

    • I went to the original post and pointed out the misspelling. They took the post down and said they were warning me not to reshare it. Yikes. Hope you can get the misspelling fixed somehow, OP. Oh, lord. Now the poor tattoo artist is threatening me with a lawyer. Even though I used her original caption and tagged her in it. 🤣
    • Is that word supposed to be whisper? I hope I am just reading it incorrectly ... 😬
    • No you can't "fix" it and it didn't move. It's ink under your skin, it doesn't move. Calm down and think! Don't tell everyone you know how much it sucks because no one will notice except you anyway. It's not on a piece of paper! Your skin moves and as your skin moves, the ink embedded in your skin will move. That's a nice tattoo. If I was a Tattooer and someone gave me grief about that I'd tell them to take their business elsewhere.
