Red Ink reaction or something else?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm still new and unable to post yet in other forums so putting this question here. The areas in the attached photo were colored about 8 weeks ago. They do not itch or burn. They just continue to flake and peel. Is this a reaction to the red ink or something else? Any suggestions on getting it to resolve? I have red ink in other areas of in the same tattoo and on the back of the same leg but none of them have reacted this. This area is the bony part of my shin.

With enough lotion the spots can't be seen but as soon as the skin dries out good, they return.  The tattoo is a lighthouse on the front of my leg. It's just upside down in the picture.

Thanks!!

Go easy on the lotion and let your body do the healing.  If it persists and you're still concerned about it, reach out to your artist.  I've had some funny stuff with red ink, I bet you just need to give it more time.

    • @bongsau glad to hear you're hanging in there! if  you're willing to share, I'd love to see pics of that paint job. Sounds super interesting! i went thru a broken engagement back in the late 2000s. We had just bought a condo together and she left me with a single income right when the housing bubble was bursting. Perfect timing. I also had some dark times, but good friends and family helped shine some light on shit and brighten things up. I eventually fell in love again with my current wife of nearly 10yrs. We ended up foreclosing on the condo, like many Americans, coz the mortgage wasn't worth it and my new lady wasn't digging the spot that didn't feel like her own. That said, we got to live there for at least a few months without paying the rent! hahahhahaha... it was kind nice to somewhat feel what actually OWNING a home would be like, not having to pay the bank. Anyways... i guess i'm just pointing out that cons, pros, ups, and downs come with the ticket to ride. That time taught me many lessons about myself and life, in general. Still learning with far to go! Sending the strongest good juju your way, my man! 🙌💨💞
    • Maybe you have a mutant power!! Wolverine butt. Either that or you're working for Jondix and Chad Koeplinger, trying to get me to extend my back piece.
