Imitation and some questions

Recommended Posts

Hello hello,

 

 

Im Dee, 21 years old. Just found this awesome group. I have a few little tattoo but I just got my first big piece this year. I love the artwork but unfortunately I had some problems with the healing process and it isn’t perfect so I’m worried about showing it off.

 

The full story is I got it done in Ireland. Listened to the artist instructions step by step. I didn’t have a good reaction with second skin so I read the website directions and pulled it off a day later after it was starting to stink and I got soap in it. So I let it heal naturally but I put after care on it. And in some spots my ink didn’t make it. I was wondering if anyone knows any parlors (in Cali/La area) that are ok doing touch ups.. Here’s a then and now photo for reference. But to be fair the then photo was in the shop right after my artist was done.

Welcome!
The "then" photo will be a good reference, but 1st = how long ago did you get it done?
 

I got it done on the 23 of June so almost two weeks ago

it will NEVER again look like it did the day you got it,

and keep a light coat of a lotion like Aveeno on it daily,

and hey ! if you need  a touchup in a couple months, no biggy.

keep it out of the sun or use a good sunblock if you are in the sun for a while.

Two weeks in you aren't going to affect the healing process one way of the other. The goal of moisturizer is to keep the skin from drying out. The most common mistake newbies make is using too much. As previously posted, you won't know what it's going to look like until it heals - four to six weeks.

    • Keep looking and next time book mark it. 😉
    • Small detailed tattoos on thin delicate skin are the most prone to blowouts. I don’t think there is anything you can do to cause or prevent them.
    • Hello everyone! on Friday I got my first tattoo, a small dagger, like 5cm on the back of my hand. I think this was the absolute right decision, but I am a bit afraid of the aftercare, because there are some Details, which I would like to preserve. As this is my first tattoo and there are three questions which I couldn’t find answers on: No.1 I am currently living in Athens and the tap water is relatively heavy chlorinated, which makes me unsure about showering and washing, should that be any problem? No.2 During the days the sun is always shining. In the last few days I’ve hid in my flat to let the tattoo heal but tomorrow I have to get to work, would it be an idea to use a band aid to cover the tattoo from the sun? No.3 The possibly most shitty thing with this small detailed tattoo would be blowouts, how do they happen? Until now everything looks just fine, but I am a bit scarred to F*** everything up if I stretch my hands to strong or move them in a wrong way. I am completly paranoid about everything right now, but I think that’s kind of normal.   Thanks for the help and best regards! Anton
