Tattoo cloudy

Recommended Posts

You can't pull ink out unless you're lifting scabs, and that's not happening with your tattoo. The above looks normal for a tattoo that still needs at least 3 more weeks of healing time.

Hi! I think some of my shading ink got pulled out during cleaning. One time with minimal pressure, i unintentionally rubbed some skin shedding off while cleaning because it was so soft with water. I am wondering if it’s that easy for tattoo ink to come off?
I’ve been wondering if i should be worried about ink pulling out from the soft wet shedded skin while washing even though i apply minimal pressure for 1 minute tops while washing.

circled the area where i think some of the shading came off.

it’s about 6 days old.

You don't "Pull" ink out of a tattoo. It's UNDER YOUR SKIN. Unless you're cleaning it with a cheese grater, there's no way that happens.

Hi,
So I’m on the 10th day of my healing process, from one day to another one part of the tat started looking very cloudy and was a big difference compared to the the rest.
Does this look like a normal part of the healing process? 
or is it something I’ll most likely have to touch up?

I'm sure it's fine. You just need to wait for it to heal completely (4-6 weeks), and then make your assessment. And besides, most artists do touch ups free of charge. It'll work out in the end. Just be patient.

Hello , my tattoo is 13 days from now and it's starting to peel but as the scab fall off some parts look like it has no ink underneath but some has. Do I need a touch up?

I encircled the part where I think it lost some ink

I takes 4-6 weeks to heal. That's when you'll know. There is no way to know sooner.

Hi, I got some of the same concerns for mine. This was taken 24 hours after I got it (this morning) and is not what I was going for at all. Will the pink fade? It was supposed to be background faded, but just looks like scaring to me right now 😞

Thank you, that’s also what I got from the other posts. I was just hoping for some idea of what it would look like as to me the coloring looks really poorly done (by comparing it to other pictures of tattoos with similar age).

Or is it really that individual how it heals?

Hi Ras: Have yourself a mental picture of those needles furiously pounding the skin when you chose to get inked up: the photo very strongly suggests the word 'inflammation' from a procedure which occurred only a few hours previously.

While you might be seemingly aware of some ppl who say they have immediate post-tattooing regrets, yet often these can be a result of not having known quite what to expect, especially if it is one's first ink.

Actually, the simple design in the photo is rather effective, giving the idea of birds, twigs and a swing, all blowing in the wind, so to speak. (Bob Dylan: 'The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind...' :) )
