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.

    • What’s up everyone, new guy here from Philly area. It’s been about 5-6 years since I’ve been tattooed and haven’t followed as closely as once did. Now that I’m at a place where I’m able to seek out pieces and projects i want I’ve got that itch to really get back into it.   I’ve got a sleeve by Myke chambers and also a back piece that we started and need to get finished. From the brief reading I’ve done, he doesn’t get much love here. Im a big fan of American traditional but I love and appreciate all styles of tattooing. I’ve been saving my left arm and right leg for a special project, after getting lots of pieces on a whim or just hanging in the shop late night and letting your friend go to work.  Currently waiting on my passport so I can begin trying to start a sleeve project with Peter Lagergren 
    • hannahlsj Oh okay, I hadn't heard about the Miami Ink studio moving; you from Singapore evidently keep up with stuff in North America... (It's one of a number of similar TV shows, anyway.) About strict parents; well, in North America, too, there are many strict parents although maybe the 'strictness' works out in different ways; e.g., in North America Hannah your name is known to mean 'favored by God' and many ppl from believing families have tattoos; I saw a quote from the Bible Belt which indicated just how many younger ppl from churches in the Bible Belt have ink - often in faith based designs - so for moms it's not unusual over here, even if the family is strict and believing, when their young ppl have it done.
    • I’m currently schooling so I don’t wanna risk my clothes getting sticked to the plasma from the tattoo while in class 😞 Will perhaps try dry healing for my second tattoo if it’s a small-medium sized one to see how it goes!
