Tattoo looks faded and lines look blurry/thicker?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! 

I have two tattoos now (got them around the same time). The first one looks alright (it's a lot smaller too), but this one seems to be looking pretty odd... I got it two weeks ago and the first few days I washed it twice a day + A & D lotion. Some parts of it started scabbing pretty ugly and some parts accidentally fell off too early (now I can see the loss of color in those parts. However, that's not what I worry about... I see that the lines (specifically the ones in the middle petal of the flower) are looking extremely off, with some parts looking sharper and thinner than others, and even some little parts of it looking like it was blown out (you can take a closer look in the picture). I'm aware that it's still in the healing process and I won't really be able to tell how it'll look until at least a few months later. Any advice on what I should do? The parts that didn't scab that heavy are looking pretty alright... so I'm not sure if it's simply that the rest might take longer to heal. 

Do you guys think it really has blown out a bit on the part that I'm talking about? Since it's still peeling I'm not sure if some of this might disappear with time or if that's pretty much what it's going to look like after it peels. I honestly don't know what to expect and I'm worrying that I'm doing something wrong (As of now I just clean it twice a day and then apply a bit of coconut oil). My artist only warned me it would scab but didn't give me any directions for aftercare. Attached are pictures of when I first got it and how it looks like now. Pls help! And thank you in advanced.

Advice on what to do - nothing. Until it heals you don't know what it's going to look like and until you know what it's going to look like, you can't make an informed decision on what to do, if anything.

I don't see anything wrong with it from the pics, but again, it's too early to tell.

Hmm thanks for your reply! I know tattoos never look literally the same as they did the first time, but the middle petal looks really odd to me, I'm not sure if you saw that or not... but then again, the healing process isn't even nearly done so like you said, waiting is the only thing to do.

there's just really no way to tell right now, but it's probably just the natural healing process.

in my experience people new to tattoos tend to worry more than is warranted. it'll probably be fine. and if it isn't you can ask the artist to touch it up in like 4 months or something.

It doesn't matter what it looks like now.  ;-)
