New tattoo - should I be concerned?

Recommended Posts

Hi all! New here. Been posting on a few forums just to get some kind of idea about my first tattoo. I’ll give you guys some background and a picture and would love some input!

- it’s my first tattoo, it’s on my wrist

- I got it Nov 12th. I washed it with unscented soap soap 3-4 times a day and used aquafor afterwards and when it was dry for the first 3 days and then switched to unscented lotion (I’m learning I may have overused the lotion)

- the tattoo took probably less than 10 minutes overall

- I can’t go back to my original artist because I got it done on vacation. 

 

I think that that pretty much covers it? Any input would be appreciated!

    • Hi my name's Sophia nice to meet you all! I wanted to get some opinions or feedback on a recent tattoo I got. It's on my right thigh for reference. I followed proper aftercare but it still did not heal how I wanted. Its a black tattoo (will include a pic at bottom) but as its healed its become super patchy. It scabbed pretty thinly but when scabs came over at the end of the second ish week into the third, I could see my skin underneath almost like glassy.  I washed it 3 times a day with a mild fragrance free soap and applied a thin layer of Tattoo Goo over top. I religiously avoided sun maybe going outside once a week. I let it breathe and never scratched it. None of the scabs seemed to have gotten ripped off they only fell off easily whilst the tattoo was being washed.  Could this just be how my skin reacted to ink? )-: I have another black one that did NOT do this with same aftercare. This tattoo artist is pretty good in my opinion seen a couple healed tats that look good. This tattoo costed 600$ and I'm hoping I'll be able to get a touch up from my artist but I've yet to get an email back after sending her pics and basically this text.  Any help appreciated thanks
