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.

    • so how did the knee feel for you ?
    • Last week I had two days with Mr. Rubendall (1/2 day Friday and all day Saturday). We spent the time doing lining and a little shading over my entire right leg. He added a crane to the back of my thigh and a peony on my knee. The cool part is that he was able to tie in all my other pieces with clouds, water, rocks, etc., so my leg looks 100% cohesive! Apparently, he loves doing tie-in's. And he killed it. Three more sessions to finish over the next several months. I am over the MOON with his work.  
    • Yeah, I can't open up your link, but find someone who already has proven themselves in the style you're wanting and then see if they realistically feel they can amend/adjust.
