Deep scab normal or not?

Recommended Posts

So I’m finishing up a tattoo on my arm it’s a week old but it’s got a pretty deep scab I’ve had 21 other tattoos but never had one this deep so I didn’t know how to treat it.

I agree with @Hogrider nothing to do but let it heal. I've had a couple of tattoos scab like that. They were both done by very experienced and and well known tattooers to the people on this board. Sometimes shit happens. I would expect a good bit of pigment to fall out with the scab but that can always be touched up or left to look even more unique.

    • I'm beginning the process of wrapping my lower leg. I'm somewhat new to the tattoo scene. I do know there are no "rules" but more of a practice with certain styles. I am maintaining a fully traditional style. From the majority of what I've seen of traditional work, there is space left between each separate peace and sometimes filled in with the dots and stars. My question is. I've seen some cases where all of the tattoos overlap, leaving no vacant skin between them. Is this practice frowned upon from a traditional standpoint?   Thanks in advance
    • There's new video on YouTube made and about Jeff Gogue.  It's him getting his 101 hours of work on his back in Japan, but also includes his work.  He talks about have to surrender to be able to get a piece like that.  Some interesting thoughts. I love his works and really enjoyed the video. Jeff Gogue - Surrender
