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?

    • Not quite sure what to think about Everence, other than it's definitely not for me.   I'd rather get a soundwave tattoo:   
    • hello all I have an update on my tattoo. I had an artist do a rework on my tattoo and in my opinion has done a fantastic job. she has Ellie done and some of Joel's beard but still has finish him and the giraffe,so for now ill just have a picture of Ellie and when i get time to go back and get it finished ill post a full on picture! This artist has added so much more life and detail into the tattoo I believe
