Tattoo Peel

Recommended Posts

Okay,

So with my first tattoo I read all about how it will peel on its own, not to worry, and it peeled really nice only needed a tiny touchup but was beautiful. Went back to the same guy for the next tattoo, and I didn't start to peel like the other one, despite doing the same process (keeping it out of water, dabbing, keeping it moisturized with a tattoo "serum" when needed). It seemed a bit drier, and also that it was more raised. Well the other day I notice that it peeled in 2 small sections on its own.. and looks horrible. Does it look normal? Because it peeled itself I just pulled the excess skin off (maybe shouldn't have done that, but I did with the other and it was fine), but now I'm wondering if it's ruined.. advice? I got it 5/22/18, now 5/31/18 for reference.

My other tattoo was on the finger and healed fine. I'm not saying it is healed, I was asking to anyone who has had something similar if it looks normal. It peeled on its own but looks... off. But I haven't had this kind before.

At least it seems normal and it wasn't anything that seemed weird. I'm probably weird for thinking it was weird, that's okay.

Well.... even if it has a tendency to fade/ blowout where it is I just love how finger tattoos look so I'll work with it. 

Thank you guys!

    • @oboogievery nice. Robert Ryan is someone that I really like and would love to get a piece from if it wasn't such a hike.
    • In my opinion, the rose looks very nice until the very middle and then it kinda gets wonky.  The petals on the very center should still be concentric.  They've got like 4 prongs or something... not sure.  The two pieces really don't flow together.  They almost looks like they were plopped down separately, not part of the same composition.  I think what makes it look odd is the rose is 3D with lots of depth and the locket is completely flat and 2 dimensional, no shadows or depth. Sorry, not trying to tear it down or be critical, just relating what I see.  I don't think I'd return to the same artist.
    • Bit of Robert Ryan flash, tattooed by Josh Henderson. Love it.
