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.
