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!

    • I think it looks amazing!!! I actually really really love it. Don't worry, it's easy to have tattoo remorse. Especially for bigger pieces-- really, you just need some time to adjust to the change. Hopefully soon you will start feeling it as part of yourself!
    • funny thing with me, in the 80's when I started getting tattooed, I started on my lower arms, from my biceps to my wrists first. LOL now they are everywhere on my body, actually in the last 10 years or so of getting tattooed I have been placing them in the most visible spots I can find, now running out of visible room. I'm lucky,my work is 100% good with visible tattoos and I love showing them in my work and personal life, many of my coworkers also have tattoos. I love the attention I get and conversations I have because of my tattoos.
    • Yep. It all depends on how the artist's design fits in/around your existing work.  In any case many laser techs charge by the minute (with a minimum), and both of those old ones aren't very big - so hitting the black shouldn't add much if any extra expense overall for each session. They are dark enough that you'll likely need 3-4 sessions to lighten it up a good bit.
