LOL let it F***ing heal for a couple months first before you HATE it ! 

you can't tell any F***ing thing in a week ! 

What Dan means to say is..

 

You have to let it heal before you can accurately judge a tattoo. You can't tell if there's an issue in a week. 

Give it a 3-4 weeks. Go back to get it fixed if you don't like it

Can a tattoo look blown out while healing?

I've never seen a tattoo that looked blown out and then later looked normal, but maybe someone else has.

Listen, EVERYONE is telling you to calm down and let it heal. AFTER it heals, in 6-8 weeks, you'll know what it will look like. Here's the thing - You can't fix blow-outs, so it doesn't really matter if it's blown out or not. No, they are NOT normal, but they do happen. It's not always the artist's fault, they tend to happen more on thin, delicate skin.

Tattoos are not perfect. I've never seen a tattoo that you couldn't find something wrong with if you looked hard enough. If perfection is your goal, I wouldn't get any more.

I really don't think anyone was purposely being rude to you.  I think they were taking time out of their personal lives and applying their knowledge of tattoos to try to help you.

If you stick around awhile you'll see that the same question gets asked time after time and it's difficult not to occasionally get frustrated by people's impatience.

Just the last two letters look blown out to me?

Just worried me cos none of my others have looked blown out while healing 

Let it heal. Breathe!

I don't think there's any need to be rude. I was simply asking advice about whether it is a blow out or not.

I literally only asked how likely it is to be a blow out 😂😂😂

FOUR TIMES!

I understand you are worried, but if everyone is telling you the same thing, I'm not sure why you keep asking. Blow outs suck, but they are a part of getting tattoos. And there is nothing you can do about them, so try to relax.

Clearly, I disagreed. It can be helpful to explain to someone that a fresh tattoo isn't indicative of the final result rather than simply swearing at them to wait.
