Tattoo help

Recommended Posts

What's up folks , I got my tattoo about month ago and I'm trying to figure out what all these little bumps on my tattoo is. Any help would be great. I've been putting ointment on it (bacitracin) and I wanted to see if there is anything I could take that would maybe help.

@Mr_T

I'm no dermatologist, but it looks like either you're putting waaay too much lotion on it, and that's causing the breakouts (pores are clogged), or it's an infection.

I really think you're just overdoing it on the lotion, but I don't know.

Second opinion, anyone?

More is not always better. ;-)

Did you're artist say to put bacitracin on it for a whole month??? I wouldn't be putting anything on it after a month except my normal cocoa butter once every couple of days. A TINY bit of cocoa butter, but for what you have, I'd put nothing on it for a couple of days and you'll probably be fine.

He told me to try it for a little to see if it helps, ok cool he also said to maybe try coconut oil . Do you think that would have the same effect as cocoa butter?  I will try it that way if it helps.

I would advise what everyone else advises, let it dry out. At least a couple of weeks.

Me, I'd totally be on my way to the doctor! @oboogie

SAME. I have had an infected tattoo due to a bad reaction to a particular ink. I had to get an antibiotic shot in the ass, my doctor was so worried. THIS? This would have scared the shit outta me. WHAT IS IT?

@oboogie @Gingerninja 

it does itch a little.  It looks like it's drying up , I ll post a update pic soon. I haven't put anything on it since y'all suggested.  I ll give it another month and if it doesn't set itself or clear up then I ll go see a doctor.
