Milky blotches?

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, 

Need some advice- 5 weeks post new tattoo (half sleeve) and majority is non colour however as you can see in my images where there is colour (white and pink) I have strong “Milk Blotching” if that’s what you would call it around the flowers! 

This was done overseas (3 day sit) and I am back home now so, can’t really go speak and show the artist face to face and discuss. 

I have been showing him images via email etc and he said it’s fine, it’s still healing... however I am very worried about it! 

Any professionals on here with their opinion would be really appreciated- thanks again 🙂

Ok thanks for the tip Hogrider.

It's neither dry or oily to be honest however I am still apply moisturizer.

Maybe I'll just let it be for a bit, let the body do "it's thing"...

Yup. You never hear anyone say, "I just let it heal by itself and I'm having this problem." It's usually that they are putting a quart of the latest Tattoo cream on it every day.

I've cut back my after care drastically from when I first started getting tattoos and I don't see any difference in healing at all.

    • Hi, Guys, so i just a got a cover up 3 weeks ago, i'm feeling kinda weird .. anxious and to be honest depressed.. cause i can't get used to it still, i freaked out the day after .. and i can't stop obsessing about it.. it's all i think 24/7 ... you see, this is my second tattoo .. feels like the first cause it's a cover up .. the past one i had it for 9 years it was misspelled the (tattoo artist fucked up) i was so depressed about that for very long time even had one laser treatment but didnt see any good results so i quit..... i dont wanna admit i regret it .. cause i feel so confuse, it's just i think "omg is it to big?" does it look good on me?" i just find it new errors everytime i look at it... and i don't wanna feel this way, but sadly it's how i feel .. just wanted to talk about it with someone .. cause i can't with friends cause i feel embarresed. PLEASE, IF YOU DONT HAVE NICE THINGS TO SAY.. DONT SAY ANYTHING PLEASE, CAUSE I ALREADY FEEL LIKE SHIT .. NO NEED TO MAKE ME FEEL WORST. i'm so down that i have even consider suicide 😞
    • The artist that did my half sleeve Asian tiger used grey ink. It does have a different look compared to thinned black. Artists at another shop noticed right away and asked about it. To me it looks more opaque than dilute black.
