Weird Healing

Recommended Posts

Well I was hoping to get some opinions on this odd healing? Is it scarring, blow out, etc...this is the first time I’ve used tattoo specific balm for the healing process but I’ve kept multiple tattoos healthy through healing so I’m not sure. I used Redemption because the artist recommended it and it looked great through healing, it just never really cleared back into the crisp look. I got it in August...talking about weirdness in the blue/teal.

I mean, yes, it’s pretty darn good, but what’s this going on that looks like red/darker undertones..? Not saying it’s infected red but it’s almost like discolored a bit. Here’s a better picture of what I’m talking about.

The discolored area gets dry quicker and almost has different texture. Those areas were the ones that had thicker scabs- still didn’t pick and let them do their thing...safe to say it’s just not done healing almost 3.5 months later? And that’s okay for only patches to be like that?

    • Hello! This will be my 3 tattoo, I already have 2 but very small. I will have this design but I am not sure where to put it, I was thinking about my shoulder blade, thigh or ribs (but i am scared about the ribs because i know is very painful) I also want a place that can be easily covered. Could you give me any suggestions, please. This is the photo of the design.
    • I'm out of town (in Northern Cincinnati) for my day job for a while, and would like to branch into tattoo photography (currently doing product photography) on my down time. I like tattoos and I like photography so seems fun.   Anyone here in the area wanna meet up and get some shots of your work? Artists or canvases.   You can have use of the images.   My photo work can be seen on IG @Damage_photos if you wanna see what I do. Again, I currently do product photos with some lifestyle photos here and there.   Mods, apologies is this isn't appropriate to post. No self promotion, just wanting to expand my skills/experience.   Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
