blowout and new tattoo

Recommended Posts

hi everyone, just got my new tattoo this monday. it was done by an artist i wanted to get inked by for a long time and i traveled a long distance to get it. and the tattoo turned out perfect. well almost :) there is entensive blowout around most of the edges and it seems to be getting bigger/worse everday :(

from what i have read so far there is nothing i can do about this. have to live with it or choose a coverup or removal method down the line. i guess i will decide that with my artist. 

my main question is this: i already have a second appointment booked with another artist for my other arm. should i go through with it? or accept that i have a higher chance of getting a blowout and switch to a safer location on my body (i don't know where that is but i guess i can ask my artist...)? 

would love to hear your thoughts!

A couple of things. First, you don't know what a tattoo will look like until it heals, so I wouldn't be too worried yet. Second, why do you think you have a higher chance of getting a blowout? Blowouts happen and they aren't always the artists fault. I would probably help to post a pic.

In general, the thinner the skin the higher the chance of a blowout, but it can happen anywhere.

i worked with a great artist so i am sure that it is not her fault. just plain old bad luck or worse it could be my skin. i have very thin skin. you can see through my veins. i am just afraid that whoever the artist i will end up with blowout on the inside of my arm because of my skin :( will post a picture later on :)

update: braved up and went to my second appointment with a new artist and i am so happy that i did. there is some veeery minor blowout but overall the tattoo is just perfect. as for my first tattoo, the blowout is official and probably here to stay. there is a blue tint atound much of it and one part looks like i have been beaten up just recently... not nice... will definitely have to head back to cover it with more design. how long do you think i should wait before doing that?

You'll probably just have more blowouts. They aren't something you can control, really. It just happens sometimes.

I'd let it be - they are just part of getting tattooed - best to learn to love em! 

That said - if you really can't stand the blown out bits, you can always get the actually blowout lasered. Couple of passes and it will probably get rid like this pic shows

    • One day, one step, one breath at a time. First, everyone has something...not to minimize your situation but rather to say that you are not alone. Get the breakouts under control then go forth! Another idea is  look for a shop that has private rooms instead of a big open floor. Also, most shops have privacy screens.  For me, I have really bad cellulite. It's really embarrassing for me anytime I get my lower body worked on. Tell my that I wasn't mortified when an artist tagged me in a photo on IG that showed all of my cellulite and saggy butt for the world to see. I know that the world judges...however, there isn't a damn thing that I can do about my aging body. This is the real world, screw the photoshop version of the world!
    • Thank you!  I'm just thinking about sitting there while the tattoo artist is tattooing me and just judging me but yeah even if the do I need to get over it if its something that I think will help me feel more confident. I'm 31 and need to start feeling better about self. I know it will be expensive to get whole back done but I think it will be worth it long run. I have alot of scar bumps but I need to get my break outs under control cause some of them can be bad. Like I said I appreciate all of you who comment.
    • that looks normal,the redness looks like bruising from removing and reapplying the saniderm,that happens to me too,especially on my legs. the white part is probably your skin looking funny from under the saniderm with the liquid,that should go away, now the rash & the pain I'm not sure about,I have not gotten a rash, go see your doctor ?!?! and I have found that the plazma will ooze out more on color tattoos than B&G, try  removing it and cleaning and reapplying it one more time,if it keeps oozing then leave the saniderm off at that point and use cocoa butter or aquafor very lightly.
