New tattoo - is this normal healing?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I just got a new tattoo exactly 3 weeks ago. It is no longer peeling much but I am not happy with how it looks. The lines are much darker than they were when it was fresh and also the tattoo is still raised. I am concerned about tattoo blowout and/or scarring. Am I overreacting or what are your thoughts?

Thanks all. I think I was just paranoid because this is my first tattoo I got as a walk-in. So I didn’t do my homework on the artist ahead of time. But the place was nice and reputable in general. 

 

Thanks again for the replies.

    • sounds good ! don't forget to pre-hydrate tonight(water) ,and also before the tattoo be sure and eat a full healthy meal.The sweets and bananas are  perfect ! bring a few bottles of water to drink during the tattoo.remember to relax and you will do fine.
    • I'm getting my first tattoo in 12 hours! I've even traveled for it and I'm super excited. The artist said it'd take 7 hours and I really hope that it isn't 7 hours of straight tattooing.. I've packed sweets, two bananas, a book and a switch so I hope that'll be plenty of sugars and entertainment. Now to hope that I can sleep now that the time to get the tattoo is almost here! I'll be getting a sword and a bird in the black illustrative style, but I haven't seen the design yet. I can't wait!
    • Hey everyone. First post! I recently got my 10th tattoo. It’s right below my knee on the back of my calf. Today, 2-19-19 is day 10. As you can see the tail is healing really rough. It stared getting scabbed up on day 3. I’m doing what I’ve always done- wash 2-3 x a day. Then lotion with aveeno after. I’m worried it may be infected. It’s itchig/ kind of hurts which is probably normal but that redness is worrisome. What do you guys think? Any advice is appreciated. The last pic is what it looked like on Thursday (day 4)
