How can I avoid tattoo peeling?

Recommended Posts

I got a stick n poke tattoo a couple weeks ago and it was fine for about a week until I took a shower and skin started peeling, so I picked at it and now most of it has come off. I’m getting it fixed in a few days. Any advice?

you don't want to avoid peeling or pick at it,

most tattoos will 'fall out" on the sides of fingers like that, especially scratcher garage tattoos  like that.

and like was said,peeling is a normal and good part of tattoo healing.Let it peel.

To those who are asking if this was done in a shop, no it was not. It’s my first tat and don’t know how to treat it. People saying don’t let it peel, people saying let it peel. I need to know how to take care of this.

Gingerninja and myself answered that already,

it's too late now to worry about aftercare for that cross on your finger,nothing will help it,it's already mostly healed.

the best advice is to go to a professional shop next time.

    • 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
