Faded new tattoo

Recommended Posts

Hi this is a pretty basic question and I know this is the best place to ask this. I had this 7inch tattoo on my forearm done  last week and Im not very please withe the outcome when it started healing. Attached the pics here. wanna know if its just me or the tattoo isnt really healing properly. The first pic would  the fresh one, second would be third day and the last would be after a week with an ointment that my tattoist recommended. Its ink armour btw.

Oh, my. I would be asking questions, too. While it is too soon to tell the final outcome, I don't think it will ever look like the photo from day one (just my opinion and I could be wrong).

Thanks for your inputs guys! this is exactly my point, i would understand a lil difference but not this much. I didnt expect the design to stand out, i didint expect it to be this worse either.

    • Got a bit of a newbie question. I've got 3 rather decent size pieces on my lower leg, pretty much covering it. I know the typical response is "screw what everyone else thinks" but looking for a bit more of an answer, if possible. I don't have any issue with having these seen, wear shorts all the time and so forth. I have been on a waiting list for nearly a year now with Jay Quarles at Black 13 in Nashville, and my time is coming up this month to schedule a session in August. We discussed doing a shoulder to elbow piece. Which I do want. I just have this thing in my head about having work on my arms because 90% of the time, it will be visible, and this kinda changes things for me. Im 6'5" so with long arms, short sleeves cover about 40% of my upper arm, if that. Anyone had a similar thought process?   Partially it's my wife likening it to, my leg tattoos are just being in a serious relationship. but going to the arms is getting married to the process. idk if this is weighing on it too much for me.     dont wanna do it and not be 100% on it. debating letting my number pass, finishing my leg, then revisit the idea down the road. or just am i over thinking it, and will be good to go.
    • So far my armpit was the most painful, and this might sound crazy but my thigh would be a close second. That thing hurt like a bitch. I was pretty surprised I was in so much pain, considering I have a sleeve and the only part that really bothered me was my armpit. 
    • Hey! Welcome. It's really hard to say how many laser treatments you will need. Depend upon the ink(s) used, how deep they went, your body and the type of laser used. I'd find your artist as you are getting your laser treatments and ask them how light it needs to be.  Remember that laser treatments take time...several months or more as well as time to heal between treatments.  My advice? Start your laser treatments and get your artist lined up!
