Tattoo infection, Too dry, or Scabbing?

Recommended Posts

I have multiple tattoos but this is the first one on my back and I can’t see it well so I’m an anxious mess. I have two  fish on my back I got 9 days ago and one of them is just acting weird. I live in a really dry state so I expected dryness but I’m scared this is an infection. I know I need to go in and ask my artists but there’s a snow storm and all the shops in my area are closed until further notice. This tattoo was is a cover up of some small butterfly and there’s also white ink on top of it so I’m guessing the skin is very irritated but is this healing normal?

Please specify what "Acting Weird" means. Your back looks like it's glistening, just a guess, but I think you are using way too much moisturizer. Try letting it dry heal for a day or two and see what happens. Meantime, if you are really worried, see a doctor.
