Help!!!

Recommended Posts

I’m super scared that I fucked up my half sleeve. It’s day 4 and everything was going well. I went out shopping and was having really bad pain in my arm. I bruised really badly so figured it was something to do with all the bruising. I came home and checked my tattoo and my bra strap had fallen down and had rubbed against my tattoo until the skin was all peeling off. When I’d washed and lotioned the tattoo prior to going out there was no sign of any peeling. Could I have done lasting damage?? The pain was incredibly bad and it was really gouged.

In the hair? It looks like normal peeling to me. Try not to pull those larger parts off. You could take ink out with them.


Thanks for the response!
Yeah it’s mostly the hair. It wasn’t peeling before I went out and then my bra strap rubbed against it and caused the peeling. The fact that it was rubbing that started the peeling won’t make a difference??

I don't think the rubbing caused the peeling, it's probably a coincidence. I usually start peeling around day 4. It might have hurt because you were pulling on the scabs, and also the skin underneath is usually extra sensitive as it's peeling. Worst case scenario, you need a touch up, but you're probably fine. Let it finish healing and look for damage after a couple months or so.

Thank you so much! I haven’t gotten a tattoo and years and never anything this big so I’m a little nervous about doing everything right

The ink goes UNDER the skin. Four days in, you're not going to screw it up by clothing rubbing on it. 


It was so painful and it rubbed all the skin off so within an hour it went from no peeling to that. I haven’t ever had anything like that happen with a tattoo so my first reaction was utter panic!

    • Second session,one more to go.By Jessie Hopeless Kansas City.
    • Got tattooed in Vancouver by a bunch of Edmonton homies: Sitting outside an Italian cafe on Commercial Drive and bump into Shawn "Deadly" Hedley who happened to also be in town and was hanging out next door at Unity Tattoo. So you wanna tattoo me right now? Sure let's do it bud.  30 minutes later... (goldfish is actually black & yellow). Shawn Hedley is great. Has a really cool aggressive style in the way he tattoos yet still his tattoos heal nice and smooth. Aftercare: walked all over Vancouver for 3 days straight with this thing rubbing on the inside hem of my jeans and drank a lot of beer. Head ringing, healing like a peach. Also got to see my other tatt-bros Teddy Kardos and King Len who were also in town and who have both tattooed me. Aside from hanging with my little bro in Vancouver, the main event of the my mini-trip was to reconnect with my old bud Shawn O'Connor. Shawn lives in Nelson, BC and was coming out to tattoo for a few days at Fraser Street Tattoo. Shawn's done half a dozen tatts on me but we haven't sat together in 4 years since he moved away from Edmonton. We did this crouching tiger blastover, 2 hours on the bread basket ... Fraser Street Tattoo had an awesome vibe and Shawn and I had a dope sesh. Saw my #1 tattbro Heidi who popped in to laugh at me. Got to meet Chad Woodley, have some show n tell in his shop and have some beers after. I'm already planning my next one to squinch in something from him next, he's a super nice guy and really skilled, I'd really like to experience his machine. Got some good mileage on my tattoos and my vans shoes. Vancouver, you are alright ;)
    • I'm not sure where you are located @NearFantastica but you consider logistics for a multiple sitting tattoo ie full leg -- a fully wrapped leg can be bigger than a backpiece. Nothing wrong with travelling for a tattoo to get that piece you want, lots of people do it and that's awesome. Little easier on the life style though to get tattooed in your own backyard, especially in this part of Canada where there are some real top dawgs around that are very experienced and accessible. Food for thought.
