Welcome to the forum! We would really need to see a picture to make any comment about your healing process. In terms of after care, you should be following the advice of your artist....did he/she tell you to wrap it at night? Unless you have concerns about cleanliness, or you are using something like Tagiderm (which I assume you aren't because you seem to be wrapping it each night), you should be allowing your skin to breath - it needs air to heal.

While some people here will advocate a dry heal with no lotion, many recommend a VERY LIGHT application of a fragrance-free moisturizer several times a day. Your tattoo should not appear wet after application.

is there always scabbing and peeling? seems i've read in other forums on this site that some people have had little to no peeling when they've used tegaderm or saniderm. i realize you aren't using those but just wondered if sometimes people just don't experience those symptoms.

there are too many variables with tattoos and healing,we all heal different,I always peel after using Saniderm,sometimes I scab,sometimes I don't.
