sorry if this is the wrong place for this, i’m new and this was the only forum i could post in. i have quite a few tattoos and have never had a problem taking care of them, but the one i just got i think might be infected? i got it a week ago and there are some pretty thick scabs in some areas, it’s a little warm to the touch, and a little sensitive to touch. other areas were warm and had similar thick scabs have healed just fine but i’m just not sure if i need to go to the doctor’s for this or not. i’ve been washing it and putting lotion on it two-three times a day. you can see some color loss already on part of the grey scab any advice is appreciated, thanks!
Hori Benny? Still looks great even a bit faded.
The two main things I've heard fade tattoos are sun/UV and time/age. Sunscreen couldn't hurt to retain what you've got.
I agree with the others: It'd be pretty hard to find an artist (other than the original) to freshen it up without risking ruining things.
