Your tattoo isn’t infected, it’s from using to much ointment lotion which can clog pores thus making ur irritated skin more irritated leading into heavy pimple like breakouts. Use less ointment an keep it clean it will heal up in a week or so. 

 

I know this because this also happen to me, where I had heavy breakouts. First I thought I was allergic to the current ointment I use or the soap. But once I used less ointment like my tattoo artist recommended everything went back to normal.

    • hey all! i just got my fourth tattoo 4 days ago, and it’s the first one that’s visible to me 24-7 (others are on my back, my upper arm, and my inner lip). i’ve even paranoid about this healing process because i see it all the time! my lines have gotten a little bit thicker. i’m wondering if this is normal healing or if this is the beginning of a blowout. which do you think? i know that either way, it will be at least 3-4 weeks to see the final results. do any of you still get anxious when you’re in the healing phase? thanks 🐝
    • To you. It varies greatly person to person. 🙂
    • I'm sure he said it was " thick " and may need touching up later. So far i'm delighted with it and will have to see how it heals 😄
