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.

    • Thanks for the advice and warm welcome! I think I will try out a new artist for my next one. One more thing, this next tattoo will fill up the last large space on my lower arm. I have a bunch of small filler tattoos I want although I am not very particular about the placement or even the design, would it be normal to let an artist know I have some random spaces, and give them 8-10 things I want but let them choose 2-3 to tattoo or do you think it would be preferred to just provide the specifics when scheduling. I am not typically very picky and since they'd be choosing from a list I would be pretty comfortable letting someone more artistic than me choose what makes sense in the available space.
    • Welcome! Those are sweet tattoos. I say do both. You can have it all. 🙂
    • My artist has done my sleeves and my legs, but I occasionally go and get a tattoo from someone else. I love his style, and I want him to finish what he started on my sleeves, but I like fill-ins from others. Just depends on what you want.
